Conor Benn makes a grand entrance on his professional debut at the O2 Arena

The entrance to Benn's professional debut had everything. The surname said enough but once those Big Ben chimes that used to greet his father's arrival began, the hairs on the back of the neck rose. Nigel was there but more than happy to let his son make it to the ring alone, with a packed O2 watching on and The Fugees his apt choice of music. Ready Or Not...

Tony Bellew's ringwalk when he faced Ilunga Makabu for the WBC world title

The familiar sound of the Z-Cars theme tune and the sight of thousands of Everton fans singing to the Goodison Park rafters provided an emotional cocktail for a world title fight. The sirens signalled 'Bomber' making it out of the tunnel and the rest was a typical Toffees treat. Bellew looked almost too calm and relaxed as he made his way to the ring.

Dillian Whyte makes his way to the ring to face Dereck Chisora at the Manchester Arena

Whyte's ringwalk has become part of British boxing's folklore that fight-by-fight is winning more and more fans. The ominous theme to Jaws begins, the 'Body Snatcher' sways and flows with the current, stepping side-by-side before AC/DC's Back in Black sparks the lights and the entrance. It was lapped up by the Manchester Arena crowd ahead of the showdown with Dereck Chisora on a night when he said he would steal the show...
