Benn will take on his old foe later this year 21 years after the duo’s last bout
CHRIS EUBANK SR will dust off his gloves and return to the ring to face the winner of Nigel Benn verses old foe Steve Collins.
Benn, 53, previously announced he will come out of retirement to take on Collins – 21 years after their last fight which ended the former boxer’s career.
When asked whether he finds the idea of Benn coming back to boxing ‘crazy,’ Eubank said if it brings attention to the sport then it can only be a good thing.
Speaking to talkSPORT, he said: “Nothing is crazy in boxing.
“Because it’s all about entertainment, if it puts boxing on the global map then it’s a good thing.
“Personally I don’t know if the public want to see that particular fight, if they do, then good.
“They can actually battle it out, and I’ll clean up the rest afterwards.”
And his son Eubank Jr, who holds the IBO super-middleweight title, said he is behind his father 100 per cent on his comeback plans.
