Conor Benn once again proved his quality and strength on Saturday in his WBA Continental welterweight title defense against Samuel Vargas at Wembley Arena in London. The Briton scored a TKO against the Colombian in the first round and continues his rise to a title shot.

Benn didn’t wait too long to attack the experienced South American and in one of the first combinations he landed a right hand that put Vargas in a bad spot. The regional champion continued his relentless attack on his opponent and in the absence of a response, the referee decided to stop the actions.

Benn said before the fight that he expected a convincing victory and he did. He was fighting an experienced opponent who had challenged several of the greats such as Errol Spence, Danny Garcia or Keith Thurman and managed to demolish him quickly to show that he is almost ready for the big occasions.

The Briton kept his undefeated record at 18 wins, with 12 KOs, while Vargas dropped his record to 36 wins, 7 losses, 2 draws, and 14 KOs.
