Conor Benn and Chris Van Heerden made weight without issue for their welterweight showdown this Saturday on DAZN live from Manchester Arena.
Benn tipped the scales at 146.5 while Van Heerden tallied 145.75 pounds. Benn will enter the fight coming off the most sensational KO of his career with a one-punch stoppage of Chris Algieri last December. Van Heerden is looking to rebound after an accidental, round one head butt caused a No Contest against Jaron Ennis on December 19.
Expect this to be another showcase fight for the younger Benn. Van Heerden’s is on an unfortunate streak of suffering from severe cuts in his last three fights and it’ll be difficult for him to stand up to Benn’s power at this late career stage. Benn TKO6
