- Conor Benn and Chris Eubank Jr Are Negotiating A Feb 3 DAZN PPV Fight
- Their Tottenham Hotspur Stadium Show Will NOT Be Under The BBBofC
- Benn Is Sparring Middleweights For His Preparation And Easily Hurting Them
Conor Benn and Chris Eubank Jr are finalising a deal for their all-British super fight in early 2024.
The pair are understood to be in the latter stages of talks for a 12-round Middleweight showdown that would headline a DAZN pay-per-view on Feb 3 at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London.
Benn-Eubank Jr is the logical next fight for both men and one that would capture the imagination of the general public like no other fight but it will come with significant obstacles.
Despite the undefeated Welterweight being cleared of any wrongdoing by the WBC and the NADP lifting his suspension with UKAD in July after a hearing, the BBBofC will not license him in this country,
Robert Smith confirmed to talkSPORT yesterday that an application for Benn to box in the UK was rejected as the BBBofC and UKAD are appealing the decision which cleared the 27-year-old to fight.
However, Kalle Sauerland, the promoter of Eubank, has insisted that if a deal can be reached, the fight will happen in the UK through another sanctioning body – a move which is completely legal but would be frowned upon by some in the boxing fraternity.

Benn throughout the first build-up insisted he would be the first man to knock Eubank Jr out – something which he can no longer do after Liam Smith’s 4th-round TKO win in January.
After watching Smith stun Eubank earlier this year, the British star believes that Eubank will not last six rounds in the ring with him when they meet.
Earlier today Benn posted footage on his Instagram of him sparring with a noticeably bigger fighter.
‘The Destroyer’ who is known for his terrific head movement slipped and rolled under around four or five shots before he counted a slow jab which seemed to badly rock his sparring partner.
Benn didn’t load up on the shot and was able to fire another 1-2 before the clip stopped – punches which further moved back the head of his unnamed sparring partner.
