Conor Benn set to return and headline Fight Camp's opening week against Adrian Granados

Benn is looking to pick up from where he left off against Samuel Vargas, who he dispatched inside 82 seconds back in April.

Conor Benn is set to return on the opening week of Fight Camp against Adrian Granados next month, Planet Sport understands.

Britain's most exciting welterweight sent shockwaves through the 147-pound division with his demolition of Samuel Vargas and called out the likes of Amir Khan and Shawn Porter.

David Avanesyan - who beat Josh Kelly in his previous fight earlier this year - was a possibility for Benn but it now seems another Mexican has a chance to ruin the party for Matchroom Boxing this summer.

Granados, 31, is an experienced-yet-beatable opponent having shared the ring with Danny Garcia Adrien Broner and Porter - losing all three.

His current record is 21-8-3 although he has only tasted one defeat inside the distance to Garcia back in 2019."

July 31, July 21, whatever, whatever the day is, those are the dates I am hearing, anyone can get it, I ain't really fussed," Benn said to iFL TV in a recent interview.

"I actually want to step up this time, whether it's stateside or here, wherever.

"I'm ready whenever man, whoever. I see some of the yanks calling my name now."

"I'll happily go over there and beat them in their back garden," he added. "I'll go fight Adrian Granados in his hometown in Mexico. I'll go fight [Adrien] Broner in Vegas.

"Whoever they put in front of me will get the work ultimately." Shannon Courtenay is expected to make the first defence of her WBA bantamweight title against Rachel Ball.

"The Baby Face Assassin" tasted defeat to Ball at last summer's Fight Camp at Matchroom's HQ.

Anthony Fowler, under Shane McGuigan, will also feature on the undercard as he looks to continue his rise through the rankings at 154.
