Author Ben Dirs takes us back to the early 1990’s and a bitter ring rivalry that produced two epic fights between two contrasting fighters. Nigel Benn, tough as teak, the self-styled ‘Dark Destroyer’ was relentlessly a front-foot fighter. Chris Eubank, enigmatic but as brave as a lion. When the Dark Destroyer met ‘Simply the Best’ the sparks flew.
Ben is joined on stage by Paul Smith British super middleweight champion and vastly experienced TV fight director, John Watts, who produced live coverage of the second Benn/Eubank clash and covered most of their big fight moments and Paul Smith Liverpool's very own British Super Middleweight Champion.
