According to his son Connor this is 100% happening!

Benn's son, Conor, who is an active welterweight fighter, is reported as saying: "He's back! I wonder who will he face."

Conor also confirmed to World Boxing News (WBN) that his famous father has a fight signed against a former WBC world titleholder who fought as recently as two years ago, although he did not say specifically who his father's opponent would be.

"It's guaranteed he's definitely fighting," Conor told WBN.

"One hundred million percent. Contracts have been signed. The ins and outs I'm not too sure of or what's in the contract word for word. But it won't be with Eddie Hearn, Frank Warren, Top Rank and ESPN or anything like that. It will be a Benn Promotions show."

The popular former world champion was quoted as saying: "20 years (later), I'm back. I'm ready. One more time. Feels good."
