NIGEL BENN has been forced to call off his controversial comeback fight after sustaining a shoulder injury in training.

The 55-year-old had been due to face Sakio Bika in a one-off contest at the Resort World Arena in Birmingham on November 23.

But Benn, who last fought 23 years ago when he lost a rematch to Steve Collins, revealed the bout against Bika is now off.
