April 9, 2021
Welterweight prospect Conor Benn returns Saturday on DAZN and Sky Sports activities, going through veteran battler Samuel Vargas in a 10-round principal occasion.
Does Vargas (31-6-2, 14 KO) pull the upset this time, or will Benn (17-0, 11 KO) roll on to a different win?
Scott Christ (18-6-1)
I like Vargas advantageous on this position, he’s powerful and scrappy, he brings the struggle. Powerful dude. Warrior. And so forth. However except he catches Benn chilly, I feel this winds up one other struggle Vargas valiantly loses, both by a large rating or a late stoppage, and I feel Benn will need the late stoppage. Benn’s bodily presents are such that when he has Vargas worn down and discouraged, he ought to be capable to take a danger and simply overwhelm the vet late. Benn has made severe enhancements during the last couple of years, and Vargas doesn’t have the facility to make an enormous distinction irrespective of how laborious he tries. (He dropped Amir Khan, however then so did Willie Limond. Was Willie Limond a banger now?) Benn TKO-9
Wil Esco (19-5-1)
Right here’s the factor, I’ve by no means been excessive on Samuel Vargas and I feel Conor Benn has developed a bit greater than anticipated. That’s a fast and straightforward method of claiming that I’m anticipating Benn to return by way of in a minimum of this outing. I nonetheless have severe reservations as to Benn’s ceiling, however he’s not going up towards the elite but and I feel this can be a degree the place he can compete. Vargas is most lately coming off a knockout loss to Vergil Ortiz final yr and I don’t suppose that’s going to assist his confidence any, even when he does suppose he can conflict with Benn. I’ll take Benn to win a transparent resolution. Benn UD-10

Benn actually has come a great distance since Cedrick Peynaud. He’s undoubtedly nonetheless a piece in progress, loading up on his punches and displaying nowhere close to sufficient defensive savvy to justify that low lead hand, however his ramrod jab and sharp counters appear borderline alien when in comparison with his earlier brawling. They determine to be high quality weapons towards Vargas’ linear bruising, and if Vargas does get the telephone sales space struggle he desires, he’s on the flawed finish of significant energy and velocity disparities.
Even acknowledging that he’s incomplete and a far cry from his legendary father, Benn has the instruments to win both a boxing match or a firefight. Vargas took numerous nasty pictures from Vergil Ortiz earlier than lastly taking place, so he’ll most likely final the space, however his lack of thump might be his undoing as Benn spears him with jabs and buries him in energy pictures. Benn UD-10
Lewis Watson (19-5-1)
I’m actually rising to love Conor Benn. He’s honest when he talks, exhibits actual feelings inside and out of doors the ring and has that contact of vulnerability that makes him so rattling watchable. Oh, and he’s a Brit that may converse a second language! Bravo!
Vargas is properly and actually on the slide having picked up solely two wins in his final six and recording one stoppage victory since 2015. This feels just like the excellent piece of matchmaking for Benn who will tee off on Vargas however might must go some to get him out of there. Benn was clearly annoyed by not stopping Formella again in November, and I sense a showreel KO is excessive on the record of priorities on Saturday. Benn to shut the present in model after a dramatic onslaught. Benn TKO-10
