Nigel Benn (27-1, 25 KOs)
vs. Chris Eubank (24-0, 14 KOs)
Nov. 18, 1990, National Exhibition Center, Birmingham, England
Benn, known as "The Dark Destroyer," had finished 25 of his 27 victims by KO, including Iran Barkley, whom he stopped in the first round in his preceding outing to win the WBO middleweight title. Chris Eubank, meanwhile, was beginning to live up to his own ring moniker, "Simply the Best," with a perfect 24-0 record -- though Nunn clearly figured to be the greatest challenge of his career. Both were Brits, and neither had any affection for the other.
