  Benn: "Iím Bringing Violence To Vegas"

Conor Benn has warned Peter Dobson that heís bringing Ďsheer violenceí to their clash at The Chelsea at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas on Saturday February 3, live worldwide on DAZN.

Benn (22-0 14 KOs) is back in action in his second straight fight in the States after he returned from a 17-month absence in Orlando in September with a ten-round points win over Rodolfo Orozco. ĎThe Destroyerí is polishing off his preparation at the Matchroom Churchill Gym in Santa Monica alongside George Liddard and Jimmy Sains, who are on his undercard, as well as John Ryder, who meets Jaime Munguia in Phoenix on January 27 live on DAZN.

Dobson (16-0 9 KOs) has warned the Essex man that heíll ruin his plans to face the elite at 147lbs and derail his World title dreams, but as Benn ticks a massive box in his career by topping the bill in Sin City,

ďI never thought I would fight in Las Vegas, let alone headline, so itís nothing but a blessing,Ē said Benn. ďIíve got a lot of supporters in America, and I know that people will be traveling over to see me. I sit back and count my blessings, England is my home, and I canít wait for the homecoming, but at the same time I am embracing every step of this journey. Itís all part of the story and I am excited about what is to come.

ďIím going to make an example of him. He can do the talking. Talk as much as you want, the outcome will be the same. Delusion is one hell of a thing and thereís a fine line between delusion and confidence. I know what I am bringing in and thatís sheer violence, sheer brutality, sheer spite. Whatever he does, I do better, and I am going in there to handle business and deal with him in serious fashion.

ďItís exciting to have four Essex boys going to Vegas with George, Jimmy and Johnny Fisher and his ĎBosh Armyí. I donít think that been done before and it shows the opportunities that have presented themselves throughout this process. First Orlando and now fighting in Sin City, itís great to fight in the States and get my name out there over there.

ďObviously, Iím not my dad. Itís evident to see. I am Conor Benn, thatís that. What heís said is nothing I havenít heard before, if he wants to talk that talk, fair play. Talk is cheap, I take no notice of it but when I get in the ring, I express every bit of feeling I have in me. So, he can keep talking, itíll just make me want to end the fight early. Iím going in there to dismantle him and remind everyone whoís who and whatís what.

ďIím coming for it early and when I see an opportunity, I take it, thatís who I am. I take the shots I see, I donít pull back, I donít pitter-patter, Iím going in there to iron him out, thatís who I am, and I canít help it. If I see one split-second of pain or weakness, I make sure he knows Iíve seen it.

ďI donít watch my opponents, I leave that to Tony, I am confident in what I do and my ability. So, I donít know much about Peter, but I know that I am one hell of a fighter, Iím powerful, extremely determined and full of grit. I punch like a horseís kick, so good luck to him.Ē

Bennís clash with Dobson tops the bill in Las Vegas, where the co-main event pits two exciting and unbeaten Middleweights against each other in the shape of Houstonís Austin ĎAmmoí Williams (15-0 10 KOs) against Florida-based Irishman Connor Coyle (20-0 9 KOs) for the for the WBA International and IBF North American titles.

Itís a Brit-heavy card with Bennís Tony Sims-trained stable mates Liddard and Sains Ė who faces Andrew Buchanan (3-0-1 2 KOs) and Ahmed Swedy (5-2 2 KOs) respectively, and popular unbeaten Heavyweight Fisher (10-0 9 KOs) offers a first overseas away day for his loyal ĎBull Armyí and takes on Ukraineís Dmytro Bezus (10-1 5 KOs) over ten rounds, while Light-Heayvweight talent Khalil Coe (7-0-1 5KOs) enjoyed a fruitful 2023 takes on Mexican KO artist Gerardo Osuna (20-0 18 KOs) over eight rounds.
