One thing is for sure, the once raw gimmick Benn is a 21-0 contender and now too big for less than a world title or next national PPV showdown.

Benn said: “People thought a southpaw could be a problem but I’ll beat anyone in front of me. I’ll silence critics, I’ll beat southpaws, boxers and punchers.
