Benn vs McClellan documentary on ITV on Mon 5th Dec
Looking forward to this, its been a long time coming a doc on this. One of the best fights ever in the UK but also one of the most tragic. Should be very interesting viewing.
The Fight of Their Lives
Monday 5th December on ITV1 from 10.35pm to 11.50pm
Documentary about the 1995 world title fight boxing match between Nigel Benn and Gerald McClellan, which ended in such tragic circumstances that it has never been broadcast since. British paratrooper-turner-boxer Benn faced rising American star McClennan, one of the hardest punchers in boxing history, in a match which changed their lives forever. The brutal and controversial fight left McClellan seriously injured and Benn mentally scarred. The programme features fresh allegations and further twists as well as the emotional reunion of the two fighters after years of bitterness.
