Eddie Hearn recognizes the danger Conor Benn will invite if he stands and trades too often with Chris Eubank Jr. on Saturday night.

Eubank will be the biggest and presumably strongest opponent Benn will have faced in 22 professional fights. If Benn bangs much more than he boxes, their 12-round, 157-pound bout could go horribly wrong for a career welterweight who will move up two weight classes to renew their family rivalry at O2 Arena in London.

The unbeaten Benn’s promoter is confident, though, that he’ll do just enough boxing and fighting to upset Eubank in a heavily hyped bout that’ll headline a DAZN Pay-Per-View show in the United Kingdom and Ireland (£19.99).

“I see Conor Benn beating Chris Eubank with a mixture of boxing and fighting,” Hearn stated during an interview that was posted to Matchroom Boxing’s YouTube channel Monday. “I think he’s gotta be very smart, he’s gotta be very slick, he’s gotta be very fast. He will stand in the pocket and trade. We know that. You can never stop Connor Benn from doing that. He shouldn’t do it too often because it’s dangerous and, you know, Eubank is probably the heavier puncher.

“[Eubank] has an outstanding chin, but I believe this fight will have an incredible intensity. And I think Conor Benn can stop Chris Eubank Jr. late, but I believe he’ll beat him on points. And I believe he’ll beat him convincingly.”

The 33-year-old Eubank must get down to a contracted career-low of 157 pounds in time for their weigh-in Friday afternoon in London, which his legendary father has vehemently claimed is an unhealthy risk for the younger Eubank to take. Eubank Jr., who competed in six straight fights at the super middleweight limit of 168 pounds from February 2017 until February 2019, has never weighed in at less than 158¼ pounds for any of his 34 professional fights.

The 26-year-old Benn, meanwhile, can weigh in at nearly nine pounds more than the highest he has come in for any of his first 21 pro bouts. The most Benn has officially weighed was 148½ pounds for his eight-round, unanimous-decision defeat of the Czech Republic’s Josef Zahradnik in April 2019 at O2 Arena.

Caesars Sportsbook lists Eubank (32-2, 23 KOs) as slightly more than a 2-1 favorite to beat Benn (21-0, 14 KOs) in a main event DAZN will stream in most countries and territories as part of its annual and monthly subscription packages.
