Eddie Hearn, promoter for unbeaten welterweight contender Conor Benn, will be hunting for the best possible path to position his fighter for a world title opportunity.

Benn, 25-years-old, made a statement earlier this month when he brutally knocked out former world champion Chris Algieri four rounds.

Hearn is hoping to match his man against former four division champion Adrien Broner in 2022.

If he's unable to secure Broner, then Hearn will look to former champion Robert Guerrero or even Shawn Porter, who recently retired from the sport.

"Conor Benn wants to fight for the world title, right? So, we're in a situation now where we can get a name or we can get a route to get that mandatory position," Hearn told Fight Stars TV.

"So, I love Adrien Broner or if Shawn Porter wants to come out of retirement or Robert Guerrero [to fight Conor Benn]. All these kinds of names."

Rival promoter Frank Warren is ready and willing to offer up EBU champion David Avanesyan as the next opponent for Benn, but Hearn is not ready to enter those dangerous waters just yet.

"I said the other day about David Avanesyan. I'm not against that fight, but it's just not going to fill arenas like those three, and it's a very tough fight [for Benn], which we acknowledge, but it's a great fight, and we don't rule it out," Hearn said.

"The plan for Conor Benn is to get him into position to challenge for a world title, and he's on fire. Everyone is calling out Conor Benn. Why do you think? Because he's the money-man for the division, outside of Crawford, Spence, and these guys. He's on fire."
