Conor Benn Still Interested In Fighting Chris Eubank Jr.

Welterweight Conor “The Destroyer” Benn is burning up the social media news cycle over the recent WBC egg ruling. Now on the hunt for his next foe, Benn wants to revisit the fight with rival Chris “Next Gen” Eubank Jr (32-3, 23KO).

By now, everyone is aware of the situation between Benn and the WBC ruling of eggs being the cause of his two positive tests for a banned substance. In a recent interview with iFL TV, his promoter, Eddie Hearn, claims they never mentioned eggs as the source of the problem.

The Destroyer missed out on a huge payday in a high-profile fight with Eubank Jr behind this whole debacle when their fight was called off. Next Gen moved on and was stopped in four rounds by former junior middleweight champion Liam Smith on January 21.


Shortly following the contest, Benn trolled his rival claiming their fight would not have gone past two rounds. Furthermore, he stated during a conversation with fans on social media that he was no longer interested in fighting Eubank Jr.

“I don’t want Smith’s leftovers.”

Benn seems to have changed his mind and wants to revisit the fight, after taking to social media claiming they have unfinished business.

The British fighter still has to deal with the BBBOfC as they are not willing to grant him a license yet. Also, Eubank Jr is looking to rematch Liam Smith.

Although Benn versus Eubank Jr will not happen next, it is still a viable fight for later this year.
