Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 20 November Verified Purchase Overall I don't think that this documentary delivers on the premise of exploring the dramatic fight and fall-out between McClellan and Benn. It very swiftly moves past the fight and he straight to the difficulties that McClellan and his family now face. However, it is very difficult not to be moved by Gerald's great sense of humor, nigel benn vs gerald mcclellan documentary very real moment with Nigel Benn, and most of all by McClellan's sister Lisa who arguably has more fight in her than any boxer who steps into the ring. It may not be the next Senna, but it turns out that this is a very meaningful documentary which at just 48 minutes is well worth a watch.

That was his privilege this Saturday night.

Those who had placed bets on an early McClellan knockout were already counting their money. Benn took control of the middle rounds but was still trailing on the judges' scorecards. McClellan, who at the time was the WBC middleweight champion, was making his first foray at super middleweight.

For the extended version of the documentary go here. McClellan put Benn down for a second time in the eighth round but again the home fighter dug deep and regained his feet.

The bad blood and resentment between Benn and McClellan's family festered for years but has since been resolved. If only.

It took every spectator on a journey to hell. In the years following their world title clash, Benn's life descended into chaos as the consequences of that night began to take its toll.

After the fight, there was lingering animosity and a general feeling this tragedy could have been avoided.

Twice more in the 10th he fell to his knees, as much the victim of the affliction within his brain as of the right-hand punches for which Benn had found the strength from somewhere.
