Williams dropped Mbumba-Yassa in round six and laid him out with a crushing left to end it. Time was 2:52.

Unbeaten Heavyweight Johnny “The Romford Bull” Fisher (11-0, 10 KOs) stopped Dmytro Bezus (10-2 5 KOs) in the first round. A barrage of punches prompted a referee’s stoppage at 2:51.

    • What a disastrous mismatch!! I can’t believe this guy has a license to box??!!! I remember a young man in the amateurs that had absolutely NO BUSINESS boxing! He was 0-5 and lost all by KO!! Unfortunately in his sixth fight he suffered another KO which resulted in him being rushed to the hospital for surgery. Thank goodness he survived!!!

  • I luv the way he sells himself and how he sucked up to Eddie Hearn and Matchroom but he’s a low level Jermaine Taylor, very similar.

  • The most complete fighter on this card by far has been Light heavyweight “Big Steppa” Khalil Coe (8-0-1, 6 KOs) he just appeared to have more than his number of fights indicated and was well composed.

  • Dobson is very durable and courageous. At first, I thought the fight won’t go to the distance.

    Excellent performance from Conor.

  • Benn-Dobson turned out to be a good fight, Dobson knows how to take care of himself but did not do enough offensively. Conor moves on to a big local fight.

  • Conor fights just like dad did back in the day, Conor has great cardio, good puncher, but the way he falls in when he misses his shots, (and I’m no expert) will be a problem sooner then later, Conor’s jab is a punch he should use more, overall Conor is a big problem for anyone and they better be in good shape.

    • You’re right. Falling off balance after a big missed shot will only serve as assistance to a nasty, well placed counter by a future opponent.That’s a recipe for a one-hitter-quitter.

  • I don’t agree with anyone who said Dodson was there to survive, when you have a whirlwind in front of you and just trying to defend himself in its self was a effort, but what a chin, Dobson didn’t hurt his stock, iron chin, good stamina, and not being the most active fighter in the world, he’s hard work for most out there

    • Brian…In my opinion…my humble opinion… Dobson didn’t help his stock either..Dobson was undefeated and Dobson showed some skill in the ring.. particularly in the latter rounds…Dobson realized Conner was very athletic …and Dobson in the latter rounds ..showed some flash with the inside punches and the right hand…Had Dotson started earlier rather than being timid..maybe different results…Guys Benn is a B…B-…type fighter…very athletic..but this Benn is not ready for the top fighters in the division and definitely not ready for Eubanks….not. The Eubanks that beat down Beefy…that was a beat down….have to be more than talk and tattoos….Benn get better….

      • I do also agree with much of what your saying, if dotson had invested in body work from bell one, it could have made things interesting, not a big puncher but the way conor was always finishing his combo’s off balance, and other fighters will see that and take full advanage of that. and i know after a fight like that conor was still keyed up but he showed zero respect to dotson on every part of the fight.

  • I was at the fight and really enjoyed it. I hope Eddie Hearn and Matchroom promote more shows in the U.S.

  • Jimmy Sains Vs Alejandro Avalos was a fight that never should’ve been made. It was predictably a complete mismatch, intentionally made to give the card a knockout. Avalos simply had no business being in the ring with Sains. This wasn’t right.

  • Did anybody else have trouble with their streaming? DAZN is raising it’s price and I still can’t get it to stream the Benn card or last Friday’s fights. I’m pissed!

  • Benn will never defeat any top rated fighter in his division. He gets hit too much to which will be his downfall
