Britain's Brightest Prospect Shows No Sign Of Slowing Down.
Tonight, live from Leeds Headingly stadium, Conor Benn continued his meteoric rise in the professional ranks with a unanimous decision victory over the steadfeast and grizzled veteran, Adrian Granados.
Benn moved to 19-0 with the victory and potentially set up a huge fight with either Adrian Broner, or former world champion, Shawn Porter. The three scoring judges returning scores of 100-90, 99-91 and 97-93.
Benn began the bout in the manner we have recently become acustomed to, trying to take out his man early. Akin to his last fight with Samuel Vargas where he blew him out in just a round.
Granados was far too wily for that. Benn's jab, which is getting more impressive by the fight, was ever present. Post-fight the rising star said,
“Very frustrating, he was talking about coming together like trucks. He ran the whole fight.
“You know when a Mexican doesn’t want to engage then you can dig.
“Leeds, you lot are incredible. Thank you for your support, honestly I’ve never had a welcome like it.
“I need to headline here."
