Conor Benn is about to begin his world takeover.
The 21-year-old will be the first British boxer to fight on a Matchroom Boxing USA card when he takes to the ring on the undercard of Daniel Jacobs vs Luis Arias.
Benn – who has 9 wins from 9 professional fights – will make his American debut at the Nassau Coliseum in Long Island, New York on November 11th.
The ‘Destroyer’ heads to the Big Apple to move into double figures in the paid ranks, and having turned 21 just a fortnight ago, the son of British boxing legend Nigel feels he’s progressing every day and believes his US debut is an important mark on his development:
“I’ll fight anyone that is put in front of me, I leave that to Tony Sims and Eddie Hearn to decide my path. I’m only 20 and I plan on making this a long journey, so I need new experiences like fighting in New York as part of my learning curve.”
The next generation has arrived.
