Well, Conor Benn’s father, Nigel Benn, had actually started the war of words. Although he resides at 147lbs, Conor Benn has been touted by his father as a viable opponent for Eubank Jr, who had his last fight at 160lbs. Chris Eubank Jr. looked flawless and knocked out Liam Williams through a boxing clinic and earned a deserved decision victory.

He can now slip onto the world championship scene. As Conor Benn tries to do the same, his dad issued a stern plea to the Sussex native, which backfired instantly. Chris Eubank Jr. posted this clip on his social media and lashed out at Team Benn.

He took aim at Nigel Benn and wrote, “Send his son to the slaughterhouse”

20-0 in pro, Conor Benn has been asking for a title shot for several months. After his KO victory over Chris Algieri, ‘The Destroyer’ called Amir Khan. However, “King” shrugged it off, ending hopes of a hit match for Conor Benn.

The welterweight division is currently stacked too and does not cite Benn near the championship scene. WBO title roster Terence Crawford just defended his belt against Shawn Porter. Meanwhile, WBA champion Yordenis Ugas and WBC-IBF champion Errol Spence Jr. will lock horns in a unification bout shortly. So, Benn is apparently trying to hunt other fighters who can add to his legacy. And Chris Eubank Jr. clearly falls into that bracket.
