LETTER OF THE WEEK

A TORN BENN FAN

LAST night I had the strangest dream. No, this isn’t the opening line of a Matthew Wilder track – I dreamt that Nigel Benn walked though Sakio Bika as only Benn can for a second-round stoppage, looking as good as he was in 1990. Of course, this is not reality but it does show that this is embedded in my consciousness. Benn is as close to an idol as I’ve ever had. I grew up watching the marauding, exciting puncher on Seconds Out – a mid-week ITV show which invariably featured either Benn knocking someone over in doublequick time. So I find myself torn between thinking what a bad idea this fight is and, dare I say it, real excitement at the thought of seeing this fantastic, brave fighter laying it all on the line one more time. Does this make me a bad person? I think all I can say is, should the fight go ahead, I wish you all the best, Nigel. You owe us fans nothing and I will never forget the excitement you generated.
