Conor Benn v Peter Dobson: Fight date, time, undercard & how to watch

Conor Benn makes his Las Vegas debut when he takes on Peter Dobson on Saturday 3rd February.

Following September's win over Rodolfo Orozco in Orlando, 'The Destroyer' continues his comeback with a second outing on US soil against fellow unbeaten welterweight Dobson.

The American has previously seen bouts with Benn's Matchroom stablemates Caoimhin Agyarko and Pat McCormack fall through, but gets his shot at the big time in early February.

Despite his underdog status, 'Pistol' says he is "about to ruin another Matchroom hype job" and told Benn that he has "never seen anyone like me".

Benn and Dobson are scheduled to fight on Saturday 3rd February 2024.

Conor Benn v Peter Dobson Fight Time

This is to help boost the British audience, with the pair set to meet at 23:00 UK time.

Conor Benn v Peter Dobson Venue

The fight is set to take place at The Chelsea at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, which opened in 2010.

Stationed in the heart of the Las Vegas Strip, the venue has become popular for music and sporting events since the resort opened in 2010, including hosting Adele's first Las Vegas performance in 2011.

The 40,000-square-foot space has also become a regular destination for boxing, staging Frank Martin's unanimous points win over Artem Harutyunyan in July 2023.

It was also the venue for Gilberto 'Zurdo' Ramirez's dominant victory against Joe Smith Jr. in October.

Conor Benn v Peter Dobson Odds

Benn is the 1/8 favourite to win and with him #5 in the WBC rankings, push closer to a potential world title match.

Dobson is 5/1 to record what would be by far the biggest victory of his career.

Conor Benn Record

'The Destroyer' is unbeaten in 22 fights as a professional, winning on each occasion and recording 14 knockouts during that run.

After starting his career with 12 unbeaten outings, he claimed the then-vacant WBA Continental welterweight title with a unanimous decision victory over Cedrick Peynaud in July 2018.

The 27-year-old has retained the belt since, including a TKO success over Samuel Vargas in April 2021 and KO victory against former WBO welterweight challenger Chris Algieri in December 2021.

Benn's most recent defence came against former IBO champion Chris van Heerden, who he dominated en route to securing a TKO success in April 2022.

After a 17-month hiatus, the Greenwich-born fighter returned to the ring in September for his UD success against Orozco, beating the Mexican on all three of the judges' cards to extend his professional record to 22-0.  

Peter Dobson Record

Like Benn, Dobson is unbeaten as a professional, with his record currently sitting at 16-0, but has not enjoyed the same exposure as his British opponent.

The New Yorker made his debut in September 2014 when he gained a UD success over Mack Babb and has gradually moved through the ranks.

'Pistol' has a previous Las Vegas win on his record, beating Emmanuel Medina by TKO at the MGM Grand in July 2019, but the issues around his fights with Agyarko and McCormack mean he has not been in the ring since beating Rodrigo Damian Coria by UD in June 2022.

Despite his lack of action and relatively unknown opponents, Dobson deserves respect, with nine of his victories coming by knockout.

Conor Benn v Peter Dobson Undercard

Benn v Dobson is a co-feature along with the middleweight bout between two more unbeaten fighters, as Austin Williams faces Connor Coyle for the WBA International and IBF North American titles.

Like Benn, Williams' last fight was in Orlando, where he made it 15 fights unbeaten in the paid ranks with a victory over Steve Rolls and sits at #3 in the WBA rankings.

His opponent, Florida-based Irishman Coyle, is #6 and 20-0 after his win fifth round KO success over Joey Bryant last August.

The card also features up-and-coming British heavyweight Johnny Fisher, who makes his US debut against an as-yet-unnamed opponent. 

'The Romford Bull' beat Harry Armstrong by TKO in August to go 10-0 and the victory contributed to him being named 2023's 'Best Young Boxer of the Year' by the prestigious Boxing Writers' Club.

Fisher is likely to face a relatively lower-ranked opponent as he and Matchroom chief Eddie Hearn aim to set out their stall in the States.
