Earlier this year, Master Lee Matthews and the coaches from BMMA and Lee Matthews Blackbelt Acadamy had the opportunity of a lifetime as they trained alongside - and picked up tips from - two-time World Champion boxer Nigel Benn.
Nigel Benn was born 22nd January 1964 in Ilford, East London. He began his pre-Boxing career in Northern Ireland where he served with the British Army for eighteen months before coming a boxer.
Benn turned professional in 1987, with a win over Graeme Ahmed. His first title as WBO World Middlewight Champion came in 1990. He lost his title later that year to Chris Eubank. He then gained his second title, becoming WBC Super-Middleweight Champion in 1992.
