NIGEL BENN'S third defence of the World Boxing Council super-middleweight championship against Lou Gent has been delayed for three weeks. The fight was scheduled for Olympia, London, on 5 June, but has been provisionally rearranged for 26 June because Benn trapped a nerve in a shoulder while training in Tenerife.
