Benn was in vicious form in what was arguably his best performance of his career to date in a fight that didn’t last long.
Benn set his stall out right from the get go with huge hooks that his outmatched opponent Nathan Clarke could not handle tonight in Manchester.
Benn’s ferocity was there again but this time he looked a bit more assured, calm and smooth in his work:
He didn’t waste any punches with every shot thrown seeming to land cleanly with devastating effect. Massive punching power combined with a good finishing instinct was on display.
No doubt his legendary boxer father Nigel would have been watching on proudly at what he saw tonight. Here’s the moment that he closed the show in devastating fashion:

The win improved the 21 year old welterweight’s professional boxing record to 9-0-7KO.
Following the fight plenty of fighters have already been calling him out already.
Although Benn has made a fast start to his pro career, considering that he had no amateur career it will be interesting to see how slow or fast his handlers will move him along now.
Particularly following such an impressive showing tonight. One would imagine they will look to build him a bit more and gain more experience though.
