Benn v Formella: What has been said?
Conor Benn: “At the start of lockdown I did say that I would not fight behind closed doors and I was criticised.
“But the criticism came from people who have never got in a ring and risked their life and health for money.
“I have been out of the ring for a year but used the time to learn so much in the gym and improve so why shouldn’t I sit tight and wait for the opportunity I have earned?”
He added: “This time next year I will be British and Commonwealth champion and that is all that is on my horizon right now.
“I am just desperate to reach my full potential.
“I don’t go around saying I am going to be a world champion, I just want to get the absolute maximum out of myself.
“There are a lot of deluded fighters out there and I don’t want to sound like them.”
