Old foes plan­ning one last rum­ble

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - SPORTS -

Nigel Benn said he is look­ing for “clo­sure” after agree­ing to a third fight against the man who beat him twice, Ire­land’s Steve Collins. Both men are 53. Benn, known in his hey­day as the ‘Dark De­stroyer’, told the BBC on Thurs­day he and Collins plan to fight each other some­time this year and if their bout is not given the of­fi­cial stamp of ap­proval by the Bri­tish Box­ing Board of Con­trol, they will try to get it sanc­tioned abroad.

Benn, a for­mer WBO mid­dleweight and WBC su­per mid­dleweight champ, was stopped by Collins in back-to­back fights in 1996.
