Remembering the Original ‘Dark Destroyer’ (Pre-1989)

The original ‘Dark Destroyer’ – all evasion and raw power! A year later Benn would have nothing but disrespect for his old trainer. I remember Brian Lynch being interviewed in Boxing News shortly after the Watson defeat – saying that Benn had gone to America and was going to ‘send for him’ as soon as he got settled. That call never came. No matter who Benn trained with as the years went by (and the experience he gained), it was the groundwork and foundation instilled in him by Brian Lynch that made him a great boxer. The casual racist comments made by Reg Gutteridge we can do without.
