Benn: “This fight is for the legacy and was an opportunity I felt I couldn’t pass up.
“My team and I had other options on the table as I’m currently ranked in the top five with all of the welterweight governing bodies and I’m definitely looking for a world championship fight very soon. , but this fight is steeped in so much history and I know this is the one that audiences really want to see.
“For me, this fight is personal, it’s more than titles and rankings, it’s an unfinished business between our families!
“All I know is that on my side it will be an all-out war, a sort of last-man-standing fight. Neither of them will give up until the last bell rings. .
