Benn v Vargas: What’s been said?

Conor Benn: “Vargas brings a real threat and one I’m really excited for.

“This is a guy who put [Amir] Khan on the deck and a fighter who has been in with Errol Spence.

“He’s definitely going to bring the heat on April 10, and I’m going to match fire with fire — so it should be explosive.

“Growing up around my dad I was always naturally drawn to the sport of boxing.

“Once I felt confident in my abilities as a boxer, it was a natural fit.

“My dad’s always been in my corner with words of encouragement or criticism if needed, but he’s also let me make my own impression on the sport and taken a backseat when necessary too.”
