Following his impressive one-round stoppage win over Samuel Vargas, Conor Benn says he now hopes to ‘nicely’ send former unified world champion Amir Khan into retirement.
Khan has not fought since his fourth round stoppage of Billy Dibb back in 2019, and recently took to social media to dismiss any talk of a potential all-Brit showdown with Benn.
Benn, however, believes he would send the Olympic silver medalist into retirement with a knockout victory if they did share the ring in 2021.
“I’m only getting stronger and it’s proven I’m getting stronger,” Benn said to Sky Sports. “I’ve just got to land one. I’ve just got to land one in those twelve rounds and as soon as I smell the blood, he ain’t going nowhere.
“Khan, again someone I look up to, someone who has achieved everything I want to achieve in the sport, but I would like to beat him and gain his experience. I’d like to send him out to retirement, nicely. As nice as possible, anyway.”
