Froch Advises Conor Benn Patience Over Gervonta Davis Pursuit

Former super middleweight champion Carl Froch has weighed in on Conor Benn’s recent callout of Gervonta Davis, urging the welterweight contender to exercise caution and patience before entering the ring with top-tier opponents.

Despite Benn expressing eagerness for a showdown with Davis, Froch believes the young British boxer should take his time in climbing the ranks and stay away from the likes of the formidable Davis.

In a recent interview, Froch emphasized the need for Benn to avoid rushing into high-profile bouts, especially against someone of Davis’ caliber. Gervonta Davis, known as the “road killer from Baltimore,” has proven his mettle across multiple weight divisions, holding titles in different categories.

Benn, currently competing in the welterweight division, has faced challenges making the weight limit in recent times, with his last two fights taking place in the junior middleweight class. Despite promoter Eddie Hearn’s interest in a potential clash with Davis, Froch urges caution.

“I just think Conor just needs to take his time a little bit. He can’t just be jumping in with these guys. He’s not ready. He needs to build himself back up and get his license back first obviously,” said Froch in a statement to Instant Casino.

Froch’s advice stems from a perspective of experience, emphasizing the importance of strategic career moves rather than rushing into high-stakes battles. Benn, despite his aspirations for a world championship, is urged to focus on gradual progression and securing stepping-stone victories.

As the boxing world watches Conor Benn’s journey, the debate over when he should step up to face elite opponents like Gervonta Davis continues. Froch’s counsel echoes the sentiment of many in the sport, advocating for a thoughtful and measured approach to Benn’s career trajectory.
