  • Comments Thread For: Stevie McKenna on Conor Benn: My Style, Physicality Would Prove Far Too Much

    As a professional, world ranked welter Conor Benn can boast more fights (19) than Stevie McKenna has had rounds (15) so far, but that doesn't dissuade the smoking Smithsborough, County Monaghan 'Hitman' from actively staking a shootout with the son of Hall of Fame legend Nigel Benn.

    Wishful thinking Stevie... You're name will be up there next to David Avanesyan on Hearn's list of who NOT to put Benn in with.

    Generally I like Matchroom's match making but think they've backed themselves into a bit of a corner with Conor Benn.

          Corelone, I got to agree with you. During Benn vs. Granado's I grew sick and tired of all the complaining by the DAZN UK commentators, their lack of boxing knowledge and emphasis on the obvious encroached on my appreciation for the art and craft of boxing.

          But one comment that stuck with me made by the commentators of DAZN was that Conor Benn had to learn much in sparring due to the fact that he had very limited amateur experience, and it showed vs. Adrian Granados.

          Just take a look at this clip from round 2. I cant help but wonder if Vergil Ortiz or Boots Ennis had hit Conor Ben with this combination, would Conor Benn had his jaw broke again? This stuff happens to Benn over and over throughout Adrian Granados, just terrible.

          You know Benn's bone-head aggression and poor punching technique are alarming flaws : Look at Benn falling into the uppercut, as noted in the previous post, Granado's feet are well planted and ready to fire multiple punches.

          And what awful punching technique, this goof Conor Benn seems to lack understanding on how to measure distance and proper punch selection: Benn's left-hand, is much closer to the taller Adrian Granado's chin; I took notice that Conor Benn elects to lead with the right-hand, which as noted is further from the target and a very difficult punch to land when your chose to lead with it.

          Conor Benn, should be grateful for that good work.

            Hearn has a bit of a dilemma regarding how to move Benn forward now I think.

            Maybe he'll just keep trying to sell tickets off him against mediocre opposition.
