3 possible next opponents for Conor Benn – dazn.com

Published

on




Conor Benn made a successful return to the ring following a 17-month layoff by defeating Rodolfo Orozco via unanimous decision Saturday night in Orlando, Florida, and live on DAZN.
With the victory, "The Destroyer" has plenty of options for a next fight, with a short turnaround for December being the targeted timeframe.
That being said, DAZN put together this short list of possible opponents for the undefeated junior middleweight, who's also comfortable fighting at 147 and 160 pounds.
Despite Benn coasting to a unanimous decision victory over Orozco on Saturday night, Chris Eubank Jr. wasn't exactly impressed with "The Destroyer's" performance.
Eubank took to his X account and posted yawning and sleeping emojis:
Benn caught wind of Eubank's post and responded:
Plus, December in London sounds like a great fit with both British boxers essentially being on the same schedule, as Eubank just defeated Liam Smith in their rematch earlier this month.
With Jermell Charlo set to fight Canelo Alvarez on Saturday night and Terence Crawford expressing interest in fighting the winner of that bout, Tim Tszyu could be looking at a wait to fight the junior middleweight ruler in Charlo as he has been coveting to do.
Well, such a scenario could create the need for a big-name opponent to be booked against Tszyu and Benn would fit that bill. Both Tszyu (23-0, 17 KOs) and Benn (21-0, 14 KOs) are undefeated and ultra physical in their styles, making their possible in-ring pairing all the more mouthwatering.
It might be a longshot to land, but Benn has called out the winner of the upcoming Terence Crawford-Errol Spence Jr. rematch for a fight.
Complications to making this happen would be the winner moving on to an even bigger fight with more money at stake.
But for whatever it's worth, Benn did tell Fight Hub TV that he's more than willing to come to the United States and fight the Crawford-Spence 2 winner.

By Brad Snyder at ringside
In a lightweight special feature, 19-year-old southpaw Abdullah Mason (9-0, 8 KOs) impressively knocked out Alex de Oliveira (20-5, 14 KOs) in the second round. Time was 2:18.
Unbeaten junior wlterweight Tiger Johnson (9-0, 5 KOs) defeated Jonathan Montrel (15-2, 10 KOs) by UD (80-72, 80-72, 80-72) over eight rounds.
Dante Benjamin Jr. (7-0, 5 KOs) exploded out of the gate to score a knockdown, then get a stoppage right after his opponent, Mirady Zola got up.  The light heavyweight contest ended with the TKO at the 1:56 mark of the first round.  The loss drops Zola to (4-3, 1 KO).
Super middleweight DeAndre Ware (16-4-2, 9 KOs) won by six round unanimous decision (58-56, 59-55, 59-55) over Decarlo Perez (19-9-1, 6 KOs).
Rance Ward touched leather to the face of fellow junior middleweight Husam Al Mashhadi, often, over six rounds. Ward appeared fresh and was able to walk Mashhadi down during the six rounds to take the majority decision (57-57, 58-56, 59-55) victory and improve to (8-5-1, 2 KOs). Meanwhile, it’s back to the drawing board for Mashhadi (6-1, 6 KOs), who suffered his first loss.
Junior Middleweight Nicklaus Flaz (11-2, 7 KOs) won a close fight by majority decision (76-76, 78-74, 77-75) over previously unbeaten Jahi Tucker (10-1, 5 KOs). The fight, which went all eight rounds, had moments where both fighters showed some ability to throw combinations.
Junior Lightweight Tyler McCreary (18-2-1, 8KOs) got the hometown crowd excited by landing strong left hooks to the body, left hooks to the head, and a strong right cross to his opponent, Deivi Julio (26-14, 16 KOs). Julio, who fought hard, did not have enough to sway the judges. The judges all saw the fight in favor of McCreary (59-54, 57-56, 57-56).
Why isnt this garbage on TV anywhere??
It’s on ESPN+
de Oliveira was embarrassing. Just stood there smiling and waiting to be hit. The ref literally had to tell him to fight back in round 1.
As boxing fans we’re all used to shocking mismatches… but ESPN take it to a new level.
I will keep an eye on Mason and see what develops for him.
