Boxing: Conor Benn Wins Debut!

Monday, 11 April 2016  |  Carl



Conor Benn marked his professional debut with an explosive first round win over Ivailo Boyanov at the O2.

The 19-year-old light-welterweight, son of former world champion Nigel Benn, needed just over two minutes to halt his first opponent in the paid ranks. 

Benn charged out from the opening bell, showing the same aggressive intent as his father, and quickly rocked Boyanov with a right hand.

Sensing a swift finish, Benn continued to hammer his dazed foe with hooks and a body shot sent the Bulgarian staggering towards the ropes before a final clubbing punch drew the intervention of referee Jeff Hinds.
