NIGEL BENN vs. STEVE COLLINS (2) Site 

Description : Here we have an original frank warren promotions poster for the WBO Super/Middleweight Title bout rematch held at Nynex Arena, Manchester, England on 9th November 1996.

Thet ending of the 1st fight proved unsatisfactory for both men. Collins, despite the win on his record, would not get full credit due to the manner of the victory. Benn understandably was upset with how the 1st fight ended. A rematch would be needed to settle the questions posed by the first meeting. The rematch took place 4 months later and thankfully answered the questions left hanging by the ending of the first bout. Benn emptied what was left in his tank, but found that Collins was an immovable object. Collins took everything Benn had to offer and by the 4th round was beginning to dominate the fading former champion. By the end of the sixth round, Benn’s corner had seen enough and stopped the fight. That fight would prove to be the last of Nigel Benn’s career. Benn would undergo a major transformation in his retirement. Throughout his career Benn cultivated a fearsome reputation both inside and outside the ring. He was often referred to in those days as “Satan’s right hand man”. His lifestyle outside the ring was one of excess and as he retired from boxing it seemed his life was spiraling out of control. Fortunately for the one time “Dark Destroyer”, he discovered the Bible and became a born again Christian. He was ordained as a minister and has since emigrated to Sydney, Australia.

These Frank Warren promotions posters were never made available for public consumption, they were only made available to outlets with connections to the promotion.
