With all the talk of former boxer Nigel Benn coming back at age 53 to fight his old foe Steve Collins, Chris Eubank Sr. isn’t about to just concede any attention it might garner.

So when asked whether or not he thought the idea was crazy, Eubank Sr. insisted that any attention brought to the sport is a good thing. He also added this thought, as reported by The Sun:

“Personally I don’t know if the public want to see that particular fight, if they do, then good.

“They can actually battle it out, and I’ll clean up the rest afterwards.”

Eubank fought both Benn and Collins back in the early-to-mid 90s, losing twice to Collins, but appears to want back in on the action at age 50. And as far as boxing spectacles go, let’s just add this to the list.

Eubank’s son, who recently entered the World Boxing Super Series, supports his father’s decision, saying he believes in his father’s abilities.
