Conor Benn (20-0 13 KOs) will face South African welterweight Chris Van Heerden (28-2-1 12 KOs) at the Manchester Arena on April 16th, live and exclusively on DAZN, in another step toward realizing his world title goal.

Conor Benn, dubbed “The Destroyer,” destroyed Chris Algeri in only four rounds in his last fight, which took place in December.

His professional career has been scrutinized exhaustively because he has had no amateur experience. The Benn name holds a significant amount of weight with fight fans, who think that a son of a former world champion boxer is given opportunities he does not deserve. However, the fact of boxing is that bringing an audience gives you an advantage over the competition.
