Former world champion Nigel Benn was a well known boxing-fan favorite in his time.
The term legend can take on different meanings but when you are thinking boxing you are thinking fan favorites in this regard.
Nigel Benn was all-action. Only fought one way.
Coming forward and all out aggression.
Lots of knockouts.
A fan-friendly style always in fun fights to watch.
His son Conor Benn is in a similar mold and fans appreciate it.
This weekend he knocked out former world champion Chris Algieri and Benn senior’s reaction went viral:
Algieri was a world champion.
The way Benn dealt with him shows he could go a long way in boxing for sure.
Talks of a fight with Adrien Broner would be a big fight on both sides of the pond.
Fun fight too with a clash of fight styles and personalities for the build-up.
If Broner is motivated and trains hard he is still a very gifted fighter technically.
Big name as well.
It would surely generate a lot of interest all in all.
