Benn and Granados ready and on weight for WBA-Continental title fight

Conor Benn and Adrian Granados cleared the scales in Leeds, England, on Friday and are now ready to enter the ring to fight for the World Boxing Association (WBA) Continental welterweight title.

Both the champion Benn and Granados weighed in at 146.5 pounds, both under the 147 limit required by the division, and this Saturday they will feature in one of the most interesting fights of the Matchroom Boxing event, in which Katie Taylor will also be defending all her crowns against Jennifer Han.
Benn will be making the fifth defense of his belt against an experienced opponent and the fight is a great test for the 24-year-old British prospect.

Granados wants to prove that he still has the punch to go toe-to-toe with the best. He has faced some great opponents in his career and wants to upset a younger and highly regarded opponent like Benn.

The British fighter is undefeated in 18 fights, with 12 of them by knockout and the Mexican has 21 wins, 8 losses, 3 draws and 15 knockouts.
