Eubank Jr vs. Benn Fight Date and Venue Revealed
In the lead-up to one of the most anticipated boxing contests, fans were dealt a major blow when it was disclosed that Conor Benn had tested positive for a banned substance, resulting in the cancellation of the entire card. Since then, Benn, who has consistently maintained his innocence, has been on a mission to clear his name.
The murky affair took a turn when a provisional suspension from the UK Anti-Doping Agency and the British Boxing Board of Control was lifted earlier this year. This development paved the way for Benn’s return to the ring, which was highly anticipated by fans eager to see him in action.
Now, boxing enthusiasts can mark their calendars as the highly awaited showdown between Chris Eubank Jr and Conor Benn is officially set to take place on January 27. The stage for this epic encounter will be the Principality Stadium in Cardiff, an iconic venue known for hosting major boxing events. With a seating capacity of nearly 75,000, the stadium has witnessed numerous sold-out shows promoted by Eddie Hearn, particularly featuring the likes of Anthony Joshua.
The clash between Eubank Jr and Benn has garnered significant attention over the past year, thanks to the intense rivalry between the two fighters and the extensive media coverage. Given the animosity between them and the build-up, there’s a strong belief that this fight could result in a sold-out stadium.
Chris Eubank Jr, fresh off a spectacular knockout victory over Liam Smith, avenged his earlier loss to Smith with this triumph. On the other hand, Benn secured a hard-fought points victory in his first appearance at super welterweight, defeating the durable Mexican fighter Rodolfo Orozco.
It’s worth noting that the upcoming battle between Eubank Jr and Benn will be contested at the middleweight limit of 160 pounds. As fans eagerly anticipate this matchup, the stage is set for a memorable night of boxing at the Principality Stadium.
