Conor Benn: Of course I’ll go into MMA -why not? My style is perfect. I’m a fighter, it’s what I do.
Benn on the lightweight division, on Samuel Vargas fight, and his attitude…
Lightweight division best
“Lopez. I know he beats them. I think Gervonta beats Garcia. I think Gervonta and Haney’d be a hard fight. But I think Ryan Garcia would beat Haney.”
“I’ve proven quite a lot in my career. I’ve proven I can box and so the ten rounds easy. No problem. I’ve proven I can finish a fighter off when I need to and keep calm, keep patient. I’ve shown I’m an all round complete fighter. We’re climbing the levels. With Vargas, I’m sure I’ll have to show I can dig in and handle the fight.”
Benchmark fight versus Vargas:
“It’s another fight that will propel me like the Sebastian Formella fight. Styles make fights but I believe I’m on the level of Ortiz. There’s so much yet to be proven. I can say what I want and believe what I want but until it’s proven, it’s all hear say. So I’ll prove it, no problem.”
