Fight Camp is setting off this week on DAZN, and the two billed headliners are pretty interesting fights. As for the main event, rising Welterweight prospect 🇬🇧Conor Benn (18-0-0, 12KO) at the age of 24 is now looking to step it up in competition, and he will encounter his first litmus test as a pro. Seasoned pugilist, and game opponent 🇲🇽🇺🇸Adrian Granados (21-8-3, 15KO) will share the ring with Benn come Saturday night in Brentwood.
Granados has had a rough go-around in terms of luck, as all of his losses were close bouts that could have been ruled in his favor – with the exception of his fights against 🇺🇸Danny Garcia, and 🇺🇸Shawn Porter. With close bouts resulting in losses against 🇺🇸Robert Easter Jr. and 🇺🇸Adrien Broner, Granados hopes that he puts in enough work, and has his work appreciated by judges (if it goes the distance) in order to finally get the big win that has evaded him in his career.
This is a contest where Benn can show his level of maturation, and is one where we can use as a gauge into where he fits in the talent-laden Welterweight division, which is the deepest division in boxing when it comes to skilled operators. To join the two that had defeated Granados by a wide margin would expedite his mission in the 147 lb. division, and would improve upon his earning status as well – all the incentive needed for Conor Benn to put forth his best effort.
