Click for pro's, trainers and the rest of the world's reaction to Benn's devastating victory
Now fight fans, i want you to be honest. No one in the world, except for perhaps Conor Benn himself. Saw THAT performance happening. Admit it, because i sure as plop didnt.
Now, we boxing fans are a fickle bunch, easily exciteable too. Just like this chap.
Conor Benn vs Crawford or Spence. Anything less is unacceptable— Nadim Haddad (@NadimElHaddad1) April 10, 2021
Woah Nelly, lets run before we can walk.
Yes, last night was a career-defining moment. Stepping out of his fathers shadow to be his own man. And there were plenty, who congratulated him. Like these guys ...
I think that the Reason why people have taken to Conor Benn, is because he speaks his mind. A lot of Boxers (not all) Talk in Cliches and/or recite motivational quotes. So to hear someone, That say what they think and feel, is a refreshing change.— Barry Jones (@BarryJonesBox) April 10, 2021
Out of all the old legends sons I like kostya Tsyzu son the best but they can all fight ???????? and I respect how their tryna make a name for theirselves and not tryna ride daddies wave ???? congrats to Conor benn ????— JulianJrockWilliams (@Jrockboxing) April 10, 2021
Well said chaps.
However, it is his post-fight interview that got the tongues wagging more than his performance. With the blossoming prospect specifically calling out Amir Khan as his next opponent. Which got boxing trainer, Joe Gallagher, a bit hot under the collar.
People say his past British level well fight David Avanesyan next .— Joe Gallagher (@JoeG) April 10, 2021
Amir Khan fought the best in the World show him some respect .
And, to be fair, Joe might have a point. Avaneysan's trainer, Carl Greaves certainly agreed.
Like i said at the start, we fans like to get carried away. It was a breakthrough performance no doubt. And, if the man himself has anything to do with it. He'll throw himself out of the frying pan and into the fire. One thing is for certain ... he's got us all talking ... hasnt he.
