Watch: Steve Nelson steals the show with Hannibal Lecter ‘Silence of the Lambs’ ring entrance
Building on his superb Apollo Creed entrance from last month, Omaha light-heavyweight Steve Nelson outdid himself with an impressive ring entrance on Saturday night.
Fighting for the ninth time as a pro, ‘So Cold’ Nelson further enhanced his reputation for innovative ways to make your way through the crowd as the 29 year-old stunned all at the Pinnacle Bank Arena in Lincoln, Nebraska.
Being wheeled in strapped to a dolly, Nelson portrayed famous villain Hannibal Lecter from the hit Silence of the Lambs movie for the few seconds he had to take the stage.

It was quite audacious from Nelson, who then went on to card a six-round decision with the judges over Cesar Ruiz on the Terence Crawford v Julius Indongo undercard.
