Undefeated welterweight contender Conor Benn has made it clear that he will certainly be ringside on February 19 at Manchester Arena - to watch domestic rivals Amir Khan and Kell Brook collide in the ring.
Benn is very motivated to face the winner of that fight.
The 25-year-old boxer is finishing up his training camp with head coach Tony Sims, for a scheduled return on December 11. Benn will face former world champion Chris Algieri, who is certainly the young fighter's most experienced opponent to date.
The loser of Khan vs. Brook is expected to retire, while the winner will hunt for more lucrative opportunities.
“Both of them are talking like their fight is a warm-up for me so that’s fine. I will be ringside for their fight, one million percent. I will fight the winner, no problem at all, bring on Khan or Brook, either of them. When I hear them and their promoter describe them both as Britain’s two best welterweights, I completely disagree," Benn told The Sun.
“If anyone still thinks they are the two best welterweights we have to offer, or the winner of the fight is the No1, I would like to clear that up straight away.”
Benn is not leaning in one direction or the other - he would like to face either man in the ring.
In past interviews, Benn has openly challenged Khan - but now he's eager to face Brook as well.
“I never called out Brook before because I know him. But since he is dropping my name in, he can have it too. I watched them both growing up as a kid and even when I first turned pro I watched them both as a fan so I would love to fight the pair of them. It would be a massive domestic fight," Benn said.
“I would fight either, if they offered me a choice I would toss a coin, I couldn’t care less. Brook got knocked by a jab against Terence Crawford and the other one has got bingoed in his last few fights, when he has not boxed blown-up featherweights like Billy Dib.”
