Conor Benn overcame the litmus test facing veteran Adrian Granados and defended his World Boxing Association (WBA) Continental Welterweight crown for the fifth time with a unanimous decision victory, in Leeds, England.
The Briton got cards of 100-90, 99-91, and 97-93 after 10 rounds of hard work to dominate the Mexican in a good performance.
Benn made an aggressive fight in which he was in front at all times with long punches and combinations against Granados, who tried to counterattack the regional champion of the pioneer body.
Benn’s volume of blows was high and he slowly punished Granados with power punches, making it clear who was winning the rounds.
It was a test for the Briton as Granados is an experienced fighter who has faced many elite fighters. The 24-year-old boxer looked superior at all times and showed that he is on the rise to achieve his goal of being a world champion in the future.
The undefeated boxer got his 19th victory, while he has knocked out 12 rivals. Granados, for his part, left his record at 21 wins, 9 losses, 3 draws, and 15 KOs.
