Red-hot welterweight prospect, Conor Benn, has pledged his immediate future to Matchroom by signing a multi-fight promotional deal with the group that have guided his career from day one. Benn, the son of boxing legend, Nigel, is climbing the rankings at 147lbs and big nights lie ahead for the Essex fighter.
In the last year, Benn has demonstrated his huge potential with a number of eye-catching wins. At the backend of 2020, Benn outpointed Sebastian Formella and he built on that victory in 2021 with a blistering stoppage over Samuel Vargas before dominating Adrian Granados.
"I am extremely excited to extend my professional relationship with Matchroom Boxing," said Benn. "Matchroom believed in me from the start, they gave me an amazing opportunity and have supported me to grow as a professional fighter.”
