Conor Benn's Next Fight: Eddie Hearn Hints at Danny Garcia, US or UK Venue Possible

British welterweight contender Conor Benn (23-0, 14 KOs) is nearing his return to the ring, and promoter Eddie Hearn is preparing for different scenarios.

Appeal Pending: A decision from the UK Anti-Doping appeal regarding Benn’s suspension is expected soon, and the outcome will dictate the fight location.

 While opponents remain unconfirmed, Danny Garcia (37-3, 21 KOs) appears to be the frontrunner. The 35-year-old former two-weight champion presents a high-profile opportunity for Benn.

UK or US? Hearn acknowledges the potential for a UK return, but also recognizes Garcia’s appeal in the US, making the fight significant on either side of the Atlantic. The final decision will depend on the location cleared for Benn.

The fight is likely to take place at 154lbs (super welterweight), as both fighters haven’t competed at their previous weights recently.

While Hearn prefers Benn to return to 147lbs (welterweight), he acknowledges the recent training for heavier weight classes and suggests a 154lbs bout wouldn’t be an issue.

The boxing world awaits further developments, including the appeal decision, confirmed opponent, and fight location. Benn’s return, regardless of the details, is expected to be a major event.
