Danny Garcia Calls Out Conor Benn for a Explosive Showdown at 154 Pounds in the UK

In a surprising turn of events, Gervonta Davis has backed out of a potential bout with rising British star Conor Benn, leaving the door wide open for former two-division champion Danny Garcia to step in. Benn’s promoter, Eddie Hearn, announced on Monday that Davis declined the offer presented to him, shifting the focus to a possible clash between Garcia and Benn.

Garcia, expressing enthusiasm for the match-up, declared his desire to face Benn at 154 pounds. “He wants to fight a big name. Garcia vs. Benn. There ain’t no bigger fight than fighting Danny Garcia,” asserted the 35-year-old from Philadelphia. Emphasizing the stylistic appeal of the fight, Garcia made it clear that he welcomes the challenge, stating, “I don’t duck no smoke. I’m about to change my middle name from ‘Swift’ to ‘Smoke.’”

The prospect of a Benn-Garcia showdown gains further intrigue as Garcia expresses openness to fighting Benn in the United Kingdom. Despite Benn’s recent bouts taking place in the U.S., Garcia indicated a willingness to travel for the right price. Notably, Benn is currently navigating through a performance-enhancing drug ordeal, and Garcia seems prepared to wait until the resolution before stepping into the ring with him on home soil.

Garcia, whose last fight was a super welterweight victory over Jose Benavidez Jr. in July 2022, has been candid about his mental health struggles. The 37-3 fighter, already considering himself a Hall of Fame contender, remains undeterred, eyeing a potential clash with Benn as a pivotal moment in his career.

Benn, a career-long welterweight, has recently fought above 147 pounds, defeating opponents at a 150-pound catchweight and 154 pounds in his last two outings. With both fighters eyeing this potential bout, the boxing world awaits developments in negotiations, anticipating a clash that could redefine the trajectory of both Garcia and Benn’s careers.
