“The top five [in the welterweight division] in my opinion would have to be Terence Crawford, Errol Spence, Vergil Ortiz, Ennis, and then Ugas. Ortiz is an animal, he’s one of those exceptional fighters who can bang with both hands, the complete fighter” – Conor Benn told ESPN
“I will fight who ever they put in front of me next… Adrien Broner, Mikey Garcia, Danny Garcia, I like the sound of all of those fights, they are big names in America so it would be good for my PR in America. But the world title is the end goal and I would love the Ugas fight.”
“I don’t believe I need a couple more fights, if they offered me Ugas next I would take that fight. I know what I’m capable of and what I’ve been doing in the ring proves it. You have to remember it’s not just that I’ve beaten these opponents that I have but the ease and how I’m beating these opponents”
Conor Benn is both an interesting & exciting addition to hierarchy of the welterweight division. He’s an exciting fighter and he is the son of a great & much loved British former world champion boxer; Nigel Benn
When he first started out in the pro ranks, I had my doubts about how far he would rise up through the ranks, but massive credit to Conor’s work ethic, focus and determination to improve & develop as pugilist. In recent fights where he’s stepped up in competition, Conor has looked impressive and hopefully he continues to grow & improve further.
Equally, Conor has a likeable personality and loves to fight – so he’s perfect for creating boxing hype and a fan base.
