Conor Benn faces the toughest test of his career tonight when he makes another step up to take on Samuel Vargas. The Destroyer, now 17-0, is looking to continue moving up the welterweight rankings and his Colombian opponent has fought some of the very best in the division.

Vargas has lost to the likes of Errol Spence Jr, Danny Garcia, Amir Khan and more recently Vergil Ortiz.

He was the first man to take Ortiz Jr past six rounds when they collided in his last outing in Indio last summer.

Benn’s last outing was back in November when he successfully outpointed Sebastian Formella at the SSE Arena, Wembley.

The cracking contest is expected to catch fire at some point and tops Matchroom Boxing’s latest stacked card which will take place at the Copper Box Arena, Stratford.

On the undercard, Shannon Courtenay and Ebanie Bridges go toe-to-toe for the WBA bantamweight title in a fight that is likely to explode due to tensions in the bubble earlier this week.

Savannah Marshall defends her WBO middleweight title against Maria Lindberg, who stepped up at late notice after Femke Hermans was forced to pull out.

In America, Joe Smith Jr and Maxim Vlasov trade leather for the WBO light heavyweight world title.

Heavyweight prospects Efe Ajagba and Jared Anderson are also in action as part of a bill brought to you by Bob Arum.

Jaron “Boots” Ennis also makes another step up tonight on Showtime in Connecticut when he takes on Sergey Lipinets.
