During the post-fight press conference of Conor Benn’s brutal knockout win over Chris Algieri on Saturday night – Eddie Hearn responded to a question about a possible bout between Conor Benn and Amir Khan
“I like Amir, but his eyes nearly popped out of his head when I started talking about Conor Benn” Eddie Hearn told reporters
“He doesn’t want to face that young smoke and that’s why he took the Kell Brook fight over the Conor Benn fight, because it’s a friendly affair. It’s a little go in and have a dance for several million, and good luck to them, they deserve it.
“Could you imagine what Conor Benn would do to Amir Khan? Oh my god. It would be over in two rounds.
Amir Khan reposted his wife’s Instagram story, which has a old picture of the Bolton champion at the same age as Conor Benn with a number of belts.
The picture included the caption: @eddiehearn this was @amirkingkhan at 25 – stop the comparison
