Since failing two drug tests in 2022, ahead of a scrapped fight with Chris Eubank Jr, Benn has still not been fully cleared to compete on home soil. The 27-year-old therefore crossed the pond in September to stay active, beating Rodolfo Orozco on points.
Benn has returned to the States this week, as he prepares to face a fellow unbeaten professional in Peter Dobson. While Benn’s record stands at 22-0 (14 knockouts), home fighter Dobson is 16-0 (9 KOs).
Benn is still eyeing a huge clash with Eubank Jr, more than 30 years since their fathers rounded out their two-fight rivalry, while 33-year-old Dobson is looking to spoil those plans.
