From Las Vegas, Nevada, boxing will have a bout that promises to provide a good show when undefeated Conor Benn takes on another fighter who doesn’t know what it’s like to lose, Peter Dobson. In a card organized by Matchroom, in collaboration with DAZN, the welterweights are expected to clash fists and put on a fight that will be a taste of what’s to come for the sport in 2024.
Also, for Benn, it is an opportunity to try to improve his image in front of the public after testing positive for performance-enhancing drugs. This is an opportunity to get the spotlight back on him.
Both fighters represent different generations. While Conor is 27 years old, his opponent is already 33, even though the number of matches favors the younger athlete.
The fight will go for 12 rounds. However, it is not the only one that attracts attention since Austin Williams and Connor Coyle will fight at middleweight.
When and where?

Conor Benn 1.102
Peter Dobson 7.9
Where To Watch:
Why bet on Conor Benn?
At welterweight, one of the most dangerous boxers in the world is Conor Benn, who has a record of 22-0, knocking out 14 opponents. Unfortunately, his career suffered a major setback, as a result of the suspension he was given in 2022 for using clomiphene, a substance that allowed him to improve his performance. He couldn’t compete until July 23, 2023, when he defeated Mexican Rodolfo Orozco.
There is no doubt that this stoppage could have affected his career, beyond the fact that, against Orozco, he was able to celebrate a victory. This one came on the cards and unanimously.
‘The Destroyer,’ who is originally from the UK, has a 63% knockout rate in his fights and has been a professional since 2016. His fighting style is orthodox, and he has a reach of 1.73 meters, which can serve him to mark distance against his opponent.
It’s of note that this bout is in the United States, as Benn, 27, does not have a professional card to fight in his homeland. He has only fought twice on U.S. soil, and both fights resulted in victories.
Why bet on Peter Dobson?
For his part, Peter Dobson is a 33-year-old veteran who has not had as many fights throughout his career but can boast that he is currently undefeated. An American national, the fighter has a record of 16-0, with nine knockouts, and has won 56% of his fights by stoppage.
However, Dobson’s problem lies in his inactivity. He has not competed officially since June 11, 2022, when he defeated Rodrigo Damian Corea at Center Stage, Atalanta.
He has more than a year and a half without stepping into a ring, which may put him at a disadvantage against an opponent who also does not come with so much experience, but certainly has battled more.
His reach is 1.78 meters, so he can hit longer-distance punches compared to his opponent.
Getting a win could mean a new lease of life for a career that was thought to be over.
