Conor Benn and Chris Algieri participated in the final press conference before their bout this Saturday for the World Boxing Association (WBA) continental welterweight championship, which will take place at the Echo Arena, in Liverpool. 

Both fighters talked about what they expect from their bout and their different current realities, which create an interesting contrast.

Benn is one of the division’s top prospects and will be making the sixth defense of his regional belt while trying to prove himself against Algieri. 

“Algieri is a test, a step up. Formella, Vargas, Granados, they’ve all said the same thing but they don’t rank you for nothing,” Benn stressed. 

For his part, Algieri talked about his experience as key to getting the win against a younger fighter like Benn. 

“I’ve been around for a long time – skills pay the bills and experience kills!” the 37-year-old fighter assured.

There will be three other regional titles on the line at the evening. The first will be the continental super lightweight title contested by Robbie Davies Jr. and Henry Lundy, while Joe Cordina and Miko Khatchatryan will clash for the continental super featherweight title. Meanwhile, Caoimhin Agyarko and Noe Larios Jr. will clash for the Pioneer International bantamweight belt.
