Esteemed trainer Tony Sims talks of his relief and the Nigel Benn comeback being cancelled
The proposed comeback of the legendary Nigel Benn, now aged 55, having been inactive for 23 years and taking on a comparatively live opponent, raised obvious concerns in many quarters, to the extent Seconds Out decided not to cover it.
Tony Sims also found himself in an awkward position. The esteemed trainer is a good friend of Benn and coach to his son, Conor. Now the projected return has been canned, with Nigel suffering a shoulder injury in training, Sims can reveal his true feelings about the situation.
