    This.

    A couple of years ago I thought Conorr would be lucky to be British Champ and that Josh Kelly would take him apart.

    However conor has improved so much the last few fights I've completely changed my mind. I think Conor might beat a past his prime Khan.

    Vargas took some clean punches there and was his own worst enemy for standing there "in cover" if hed of at least fallen in and held I would hold the ref more accountable.
    Did you see Benn walking to the home corner immediately after the ref stopped it, shouting, "pay per view baby, pay per view" ffs!

    He'll get overhyped now like other fighters who win by quick KO.

    Wait until he fights a real world class fighter and all this massive improvement stuff go out the window (even though he has improved).

    Blokes circumnavigated British title level and picking the path of least resistance to a world title shot.

    He is ferocious and has good speed but he's still a KO waiting to happen, waiting until he has to settle into a fight against someone good or gets clocked.

    Benn has had tremendous matchmaking to make him look good. He is definitely much improved and the power is really developing.

    I always said he would get a world title fight but the likes of Porter kill him.

    Damn that was a surprise.

    Stoppage was a bit early but the way Vargas was eating shots and not throwing back it was probably only a matter of time. Benn threw a lot of shots on a defenseless Vargas who simply wasn't capable of defending himself and so the ref saved him.

    Very impressive from Benn. I think the stoppage was fair, maybe a bit too early but certainly not British.

    Vargas looked like inexperienced one.
    Benn is an absolute bellend
