    I'd like to see Benn v Porter might be a very good fight.

    Awesome fighter Benn. He has margin for improvement, though. And that's good, it means he can be even better than he already is.

    I'm looking forward to looking him vs better oposition.

    Props to formella, too. Brave guy, brave.... he has heart. Nothing else, unfortunately, but he has heart.

    Benn definitely elevated himself from domestic level tho to European level I’d say with this sort of win. Puts himself ahead of Kelly tho that’s for sure

    Benn definitely improved & might just do better than we think,atm I'd pick Porter but not by so much.

    Benn seems to have improved a lot and he looked good tonight. It was a shrewd bit of matchmaking because whilst he was stepping up in class there was zero threat of Formella hurting him because the German couldn't punch his way through cobwebs if he was wearing iron gloves.

    Benn is on the way for a rude awakening.

    Imho he does right, at the wrong time. For instance, he tried to finish in the 6th or 7th round with one single monster punch. That's stupid, it was not the moment, formella was still not ready to be finished.

    In round 9 formella was completely ready to be finished, and benn hesitated, didnt know how to, or started doing whatever.

    This feels weird to the one watching the fight, at least it felt weird to me. Like... this guy does not know what he is doing. He's good. But he does not know what he's doing and why.

    EDIT: he is young, he can improve. Dont misunderstan me, please. I'm not saying something bad.

    And it was a mismatch, a top notch fighter, in a mismatch like this one, does not go 10 rounds. That's another point playing against him. He's young, I repeat.

    Eh.... unlike Formella, Porter can actually punch, and remember, Formella fought Porter, almost 3 months ago to the day. That was a gruelling fight and Formella took a ton of punishment. How much did he truly recover? That's almost the same about of time Kovalev had to recover from the Yarde clash. Basically, looks may be deceiving here.

    He’s definitely improved.

    I’d stick Benn in with Michael Mckinson next.

    I don’t think he beats kelly or avanysan but can definitely win the British title.

    formella needs to cut off that flappy hair at the back which just emphasises him getting hit every time

    Porter can crack and that is a fact. If Porter can't get rid of Formella, it's no surprise that Benn couldn't. I like Benn. He's no world beater but, he's 24 and got plenty of room for improvement and time to get there. I think he beats Jenkins for the British and Kelly is a competitive fight.
