Conor Benn sets sights on fight with Adrien Broner after sealing one-sided victory over Adrian Granados at Headingley

Conor Benn has set his sights on a fight with Adrien Broner after sealing a one-sided victory over Adrian Granados at Headingley on Saturday evening.

The 24-year-old, who was fighting for the first time since knocking out Samuel Vargas in April, defeated his opponent 100-90, 99-91, 97-93 on the cards in Leeds.

It was a comfortable victory for Benn on Saturday evening

The Briton was frustrated by the elusive Granados but ultimately his bigger shots saw him rewarded on the scorecard.

‘I’ll have Broner next. I’ll have Broner here at the O2, I’ll have him at a stadium out in America – it doesn’t bother me,” Benn told talkSPORT following his victory.

“Broner is definitely an opponent I’d love to fight and share the ring with this year.

“Four-time world division champion, I won’t shy away from anybody and if he wants it I’ll give it to him.

“That’s not a problem.”

Benn said he was taken aback by the reception he received from the big Headingley crowd following his victory.

“Twenty thousand shouting my name, it was absolutely incredible,” he said of the atmosphere.

“I’ve never had a welcome like it and it lived up to what they say about the Leeds supporters.

“I don’t know what I’ve ever done to deserve a welcome like that. It was absolutely incredible.”
