“If I am honest, I think he is going to be a much better boxer than me,” told ‘The Dark Destroyer’.
Benn believes his son has all the skills and the right attitude to surpass him.
“He has the right attitude to surpass me and do you know what? I would be so happy if he did – and it’s not about me. I’ve had a great career; they’ve put me in the Hall of Fame, and the WBC voted me the best super-middleweight with Joe Calzaghe, yet all I wanted was Southern Area champion. Maybe a shot at the British title. But when I look at Conor, I don’t see it like that, because I know he will do more than I did. I am just glad my son is going to be better than me, in boxing or life in general.”
