I see Nigel Benn's fight is off permanently after incurring an injury.

Could it just be possible that all he was doing was using his fame to help promote Area Level Instagram Superstar Conor Benn's ascendancy to the top 😃 whose fanbase on his profile ask questions such as " when u fightin Chris Eubank champ?"

I hate that kid with a passion and just cannot wait until he has to fight someone who is even half decent.
Benn (Nigel) ain't fighting as the ticket sales have utterly flopped.

You're properly bitter over Conor aren't you, you do know that he doesn't even run his social media?

Conor Benn has done well to be pretty much disliked by all boxing fans, considering how popular his father was and still is.
Yep I was and remain a fan of his old man. Probably went to 10 or so of his fights.

I wouldn't say bitter was the right word NBA but there aren't that many fighters with his skill set and record that have big contracts with Reebok nor have their fights promoted like they are heavyweight champion of the world.

As for his IG feed. If he doesn't run his own social media , he must at least be aware of what it actually says and it makes him look like stupid.

Maybe he'll prove me wrong but Hearn will obviously milk a few more quid out him with at least another 4 or 5 light punching tomato cans before we see him in with anyone remotely dangerous, as he'll be well aware that Benn's ability to make him decent money is not going to be a long term venture.

He seems to be brave like his old man though but that's about it.

Benn gets loads of stick for this and deservedly so

The 20-year-old was captured earlier this week in a video mocking 'Rockin' Robin Deakin, who was was born with club foot and could not walk until he was six.

What a horrible twat.

It’s funny he has this persona of trying to be a bit of a gangster or from the streets but he’s no doubt had a very privileged upbringing.

As for his Instagram, why would someone of his level not run their own Instagram? That’s ridiculous if true.

We won't have to discuss him much past the next few years.

He'll get brutally knocked out/stopped a couple of times when Hearn has no choice but to step him up and then his dad will make him retire or drop back down to refining his Instagram game instead.

Love Island/CBB appearance incoming.

Some awful dodgy cards there, I had Urquiaga winning a draw at worse, feel sorry for him

The drug cheat wins another title at another weight. We are all so impressed.

The level of delusion some of these professionals must have is beyond me.

Bet he's been on way more gear for this. He's such a prick

He should never have got anyway with it when caught but hard to feel dislike towards him as what 809-90% are probably on something and in most cases it is obvious.

Looks like the whole reason Hearn signed BJS is to cash him out against Canelo in an in-house DAZN deal, he is going to get demolished if not stopped, be a massacre

I think BJS at his best can beat Canelo.
BJS has fast hands and fast feet. Canelo slow feet. He has a decent chance

Ortiz back with Victor Conte for next weeks fights, it's VADA testing.....Just look at Ortiz body compared to a few months ago, makes the drug testing laughable

What an absolute stitch up, there is no way that there was that much between Ryder and Smith tonight. The sport is so bent, it makes me angry.

Absolute robbery, must be gutting for Ryder, they'll now either keep Smith safe for a while or cash out with Canelo, as last night showed he can be beaten and John Ryder is hardly brillant but decent.

Wilder losing against Ortiz and bang, must've the biggest one punch power in years, absolute joke, lands the right and it's good night,
