Tomorrow, Friday, June 21, at the York Hall in Bethnal Green, London, England, the battle for the WBA Continental welterweight championship will take place, with 22-year-old defending champion Conor Benn (14-0) still unbeaten in 14 matches -0, 9 KO-victories) against the 35-year-old Finnish warhorse Jussi Koivula (24-6-1, 6 KO-victories).
Conor Benn is the son of former middleweight and super middleweight boxer world champion boxing legend Nigel Benn.
Conor Benn: "For my opponent, this is a step up, I'm not worried about what he's giving me in the ring, not at all. I do not care what he brings. Yes, he may have experience because he's just older than me and has done more than twice as many fights as me, but I'm faster, I'm younger and can beat harder. "
Jussi Koivula: "I am very happy to be able to get into the ring here in a place where many great champions have fought. It's one of the great atmospheres here in the York Hall and I'm so happy to be here. I expect it will be a good fight and people will be well entertained. I think my timing for this fight is better and I can win this fight, if only because of my bigger experience. It will certainly be a very good fight. "
