Undefeated welterweight contender Conor Benn wants to send former world champion Amir Khan into retirement.

Khan has been out of the ring since July of 2019, when he knocked out late replacement Billy Dibb in Saudi Arabia.

Benn was in action this past Saturday night at Copper Box Arena in London, when he stopped Samuel Vargas in 82 seconds of the first round.

In 2018, Khan was forced to get off the floor to win a tough decision over Vargas.

Following his recent win, Benn aggressively called for a fight with Khan.

He feels confident in securing a knockout victory over Khan.

"Without a question," Benn told Sky Sports. "I'm only getting stronger and it's proven I'm getting stronger. I've just got to land one. I've just got to land one in those twelve rounds and as soon as I smell the blood, he ain't going nowhere.

"Khan, again someone I look up to, someone who has achieved everything I want to achieve in the sport, but I would like to beat him and gain his experience. I'd like to send him out to retirement, nicely. As nice as possible, anyway."

Khan was well aware of Benn's challenge - and sees no reason to entertain that fight.

"Conor well done. Great kid, wish him the best. At his age I was a world champ. Maybe if he had some belts that fight would make sense but he's got a long way to go yet," Khan stated. 

In a recent interview, Khan made it clear that he was gunning to finally take part in a long awaited grudge match with fellow former world champion Kell Brook. The two boxers have discussed the idea of facing each other for several years, but they were never close to a deal.
