‘The Dark Destroyer’ makes his comeback in Birmingham on November 23 against another former world champion.
Benn, a legend of British boxing for his iconic rivalry with Chris Eubank Sr, retired in 1996 after three consecutive losses.
“I know how fit I am, and how I feel. Nothing to do with my age,” Nigel Benn told Sky Sports.
“I need closure. I’ve not had closure.
“I’m not ‘The Dark Destroyer’ anymore. It’s Nigel ‘Benjamin Button’ Benn. Forget about age. It’s not about age.”
