Boxing Legends Chris Eubank And Nigel Benn Return To Face Each Other On Stage

British boxing legends Chris Eubank and Nigel Benn will return to the stage to talk about their explosive boxing matches and careers. 

The pair of iconic British middleweight fighters have announced a second nationwide tour to tell their amazing stories live on stage.

And the 15-date UK tour which has returned following huge demand will take place as their sons Chris Jnr. and Conor Benn follow in their father’s footsteps in the ring.

The young British boxing protégés will face each other in a catch weight title at the 02 Arena, London on October 8.

Their father’s tour, called The Trilogy Tour, will reveal more than thirty years of bitterness and acrimony between two of the world’s biggest boxing rivalries.

On stage, they will talk about the truth behind the rivalry, the real ferocity of the two boxing matches, their subsequent lives and successful careers as well as their son’s match.

The Trilogy Tour starts on October 1 in Southend followed by a pre-Benn/Eubank Jnr. fight event at the 02 Indigo on October 8 and then to the Coventry Building Society Arena, Doncaster, Llandudno, Wolves, Maidstone, Southampton, Plymouth, Poole, Isle of Man, Stoke Sunderland, Warrington and Hartlepool (please see below for full list).

Eubank, who was undefeated at the time, beat Benn in 1990 to win the WBO middleweight title thanks to a round nine technical knockout. The fight is considered one of the best bouts in boxing history, a true classic, and was named by Boxing News as the greatest ever fight to take place on British soil.

A rematch followed in 1993 which saw a draw between the two fighters, with Eubank retaining his WBO super-middleweight title that he won against Michael Watson.

Both fighters made headline news in and out of the ring for the open rivalry and ferocity, both swearing they would knock the other man out.

The hostility and competitiveness between the pair has never really gone away and to see the pair reunited on stage after three decades will make boxing history.

The Trilogy tour by Gold Star Promotions has returned after last year’s sell-out shows and the legends will come face to face again.

Chris Eubank said: “As we prepare for the greatest legacy fight ever, I am especially excited about this tour. Let the battles begin…”

Nigel Benn said: “I’m looking forward to working with Chris again but this tour will be different because of our sons’ fight. I know we will have so much to discuss about their fight which will be a good battle.”
