    So its rumoured that Benn will make a return to the ring at 55.......against Bika

    I do hope this isnt true and someone has just royally fucked up and got the Benns mixed up

    23 years after retirement, I love Benn, but this can't go well. However they both live in Sydney in Oz, so presumably know each other to an extent, in fact they were both together raising funds for the Sydney PCYC in July, which is where they probably cooked up this cash grab. I suspect this will be glorified sparring (if it goes ahead).

    He’s the fighter that got me in to the sport in a big way. Love him. Won’t be watching this shit though. Both these fellas need to have a serious word with themselves

    Thats why he should know better. Bika obviously kills him if legit. Gotta keep the wolf from the door I guess!

    Former Bika opponent and full time kickboxer/hobbyist boxer John Wayne Parr is fighting Anthony Mundine...who last time out was against Jeff Horn

    I guess if you can get a good paycheck.....but it sure makes you look like a jobber

    I'm sure this will be the equivalent of a sparring match.

    Apparently Roy Jones was offered £500,000 but declined.

    Bika might actually kill Benn in there, horrible news.

    I thought this idiocy was over when the Benn/Eubank fight got scrapped

    Still looking like it's on, going to be a sad and very short night.
