One of British boxing’s true legends is coming out of retirement to step back between the ropes...in Morecambe!

Benn, nicknamed ‘The Dark Destroyer’, will face Frank Harrington, a boxing promoter, trainer and ex-professional fighter from Morecambe, on a four-fight bill.

The 48-year-old former world middleweight and super middleweight champion is famed for his rivalry and two classic battles with Chris Eubank.

Tickets will cost £70 including a three-course meal with complimentary wine, an after-dinner speech from Nigel Benn, and a comedian.
