An Evening with Nigel Benn & Chris Eubank

When: Friday 11th November 2022

Where: Rainton Arena in Houghton-le-Spring

Everyone remembers the rivalry between these two back in the early 90s. Benn had won his first 22 consecutive bouts by knockout, Eubank was the cocky, flamboyant upstart who began calling out Benn after his tenth bout. The rivalry grew, with both men swearing that they would knock the other man out. It was one of the biggest rivalries the sport had seen in the UK and resulted in two of the biggest box office events the country had seen in its boxing history. Now, nearly 30 years later, the two have been at it again and were due to fight on the 8th of October, but it was postponed.

However, you can see them live in conversation (that's bound to get a bit nasty) as they tour the country before the rearranged fight. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for boxing nuts and we expect to see you there.
