NIGEL BENN has announced he will return to boxing for a one-off fight at the age of 55 in order to gain “closure”.

The former world champion feels he has unfinished business having struggled with drug abuse, depression and the death of his brother during his original career.

Benn, who has not fought professionally since 1996, confirmed on Thursday that he will face 40-year-old Sakio Bika in Birmingham on November 23.
