Conor Benn has shifted his target to the next possible opponent and Adrien Broner is the next on his list as he looks walk his way to his own legacy.
Benn (19-0, 12 KOs) is still celebrating his victory over Brian Granados (21-9-3, 15 KOs) back in the weekend but with that out of the way, Benn looks to defeat the last fighter to conquer his recent foe.
Comparing the fights between Broner and Granados back in 2017 with Benn’s unanimous decision win over Granados this past weekend. It’s evident, Broner had more issues trying to grind out a victory over Granados than Benn.
“I’ll have Broner next. I’ll have Broner here at the O2, I’ll have him at a stadium out in America – it doesn’t bother me. Broner is definitely an opponent I’d love to fight and share the ring with this year,” Benn told Talk Sport.
“Four-time world division champion, I won’t shy away from anybody and if he wants it I’ll give it to him. That’s not a problem.”
Broner, a former four division world champion picked up a unanimous decision over Jovanie Santiago in February and that was his first victory since his win over Granados and between than he had two losses. A pair of unanimous decision losses to Manny Pacquiao and Mikey Garcia, with Jesse Vargas he fought to a draw.
Benn’s promoter Eddie Hearn of MatchRoom boxing has expressed interest in matching Benn with Broner and calls it a perfect Match Up but securing a fight with Broner right now will be difficult as his fee is presently very high.
