Duo to visit Romford on June 24

Former middleweight rivals Nigel Benn and Michael Watson will be in one another’s company again on June 24 during a signing event at Worldwide Signings.

The pair formed part of a group of highly-talented British boxers who dominated the middleweight scene from the late 1980s to the early 1990s.

Benn and Watson also met in the ring in May 1989, with the latter winning at Supertent, Finsbury Park to claim the Commonwealth title.

It was a result that Benn was able to put behind him as he later went on to become a champion both a middleweight and super middleweight

And from midday until 2pm on June 24, fans will have a chance to meet to two warriors, who will be signing autographs and having pictures taken with those present.

Entry to the event is free, though fans wishing to obtain autographs from the boxers will have to pay.

For further details regarding this once in a lifetime event please take a look at Worldwide Signings’ Facebook Page.
