Conor Benn Triumphs in the U.S.: Fight Stats

British welterweight representative Conor Benn (23-0, 14 KOs) secured a victory over American Peter Dobson (16-1, 9 KOs) in Las Vegas, USA.

Previously undefeated Dobson spent a significant portion of the bout passively. Despite having a size advantage, Peter underutilized it in his attacks, opting for a cautious approach.

As anticipated, the judges did not favor such a strategy, and Benn claimed victory with scores of 119-109 and twice 118-110.

Fight Stats

Nearly twice as many hits from Benn – a notable feature of the showdown. According to Compubox statistics, Conor landed 246 times out of 552, while his opponent connected 146 out of 505.

Dobson reached his target with 41 out of 272 jabs, compared to Conor's 105 out of 235. Conor's power punches totaled 141 hits, while Peter landed 105 power punches out of 233.

What's Next?

Whether Benn will box in the UK depends on his ability to prove his innocence in a doping case. Currently, this possibility is blocked for him. If it becomes available, the opportunity for a match against Chris Eubank, postponed nearly a year ago due to Benn's banned substances in the tests, will also open up.
