CHRIS EUBANK makes his comeback on Saturday in Cairo, Egypt in the Light Heavyweight division against unknown Argentinian Barerra (who has lost all of his last four fights). Eubank, who retired last year after losing twice to WBO Super Middleweight champion Steve Collins, has entered patnership with Egyptian businessmen and is co-promoting his fights with them. He plans on fighting Roy Jones and James Toney in the near future and his next fight after the 19th is already being planned for EuroDisney in Paris!!!

NIGEL BENN is set to try to avenge his four - round defeat by Steve Collins in Manchester on November 9. This bout tops a bill (on the same night as the Tyson - Holyfield bout) which will also feature a title defence by Naseem Hamed (against Molina) and an attempt by local puncher Ensley Bingham to wrest the WBO Light Middleweight crown from Ronald Wright.

By the way, prepare for an upset Stateside on Saturday when Richie Woodhall will beat Keith Holmes to win the WBC Middleweight title. What's more, he well deserves it. As you will see, Woodhall is an excellent boxer (and a nice lad) and he has been kept waiting on the no.1 spot for almost a year by a certain Mr. King!
