British talent Conor Benn takes on Adrian Granados in a welterweight clash on Saturday night looking to add another victory to his unblemished record.
The 24-year-old was set to take on his Mexican opponent on the opening week of Fight Camp, but was forced to withdraw due to a positive coronavirus test which delayed his latest eagerly anticipated clash.
But now the talented star faces another shot at Granados after recovering from the virus, in front of a 20,000 strong capacity crowd in Leeds on the undercard of Josh Warrington’s rematch with Mauricio Lara.
Benn will be looking for another victory to continue his plans to become world champion at 147lbs, and continue the growing hype around his blossoming career in the sport.

Conor Benn: “It is either gonna be a ruck or someone is getting laid out and it isn’t gonna be me,” Benn said at the press conference. “Confidence is a luxury for the working man and some people mistake it as arrogance, but none of you are with me when I get up to work in my silk pyjamas.
“When I work as hard as I do, I have the right to be confident which is a testament to my hard work and my team.
“All I have to do is beat the geezer up in the other corner, and if people don’t wanna believe the hype then I will show them.”
Adrian Granados: “It’s boxing talk, I understand the confidence he’s portrayed and that’s why I’ve answered back and let him know I’m obviously not here to lay done either,” Granados said.
“It was unfortunate, both of us were chomping at the bit for this fight, very exciting build-up and then a day before the weigh-in Conor tested positive for COVID.
“I think it makes for an exciting fight, I think our styles are going to match well, l think we’ve got a classic in the making. May the best man win, may God protect us both and we both come out safely.”
