There are dark rumblings doing the rounds that two of our greatest fighters could be set for a return to the ring.

Some twenty years ago, possibly more, the nation was captivated by the rivalry that existed between Chris Eubank and Nigel Benn.

Two gladiatorial fighters, each not giving an inch and being willing to be carried out of the ring on a shield; fought two epic battles with Eubank having the edge.

The bad feeling between the two has never dissipated and it appears that a challenge issued by Nigel Benn to have a third fight has, apparently, been accepted by Chris Eubank who is currently over in Australia after appearing in the popular ITV reality show ? I?m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here.

But, with one approaching fifty and the other having passed fifty, I doubt very much whether the British Boxing Board of Control would authorise, agree to or even license the bout.

But as we?ve seen before there are ways and means to get around such matters with other authorities being only too willing to issue licenses.

But what are your feelings on the subject?

Are you for or against a Eubank v Benn III?
