The hate game : Benn, Eubank and boxing's bitterest rivalry

Dirs, Ben2014
Books
Chris Eubank, with his jodhpurs and gold-topped cane, could not have been more different from Nigel Benn. Their first bout for the WBO world middleweight title, in Birmingham in November 1990, was a brutal affair, widely held to be one of the all-time great contests. Eubank emerged victorious over Benn, the people's champion, and immediately fans called for a rematch. But, for three years, the two men circled each other before coming together again in front of 47,000 fans at Old Trafford and a global TV audience estimated at 500 million. This book tells the story of their rivalry.
