The 20 year-old son of former two-weight World Champion and British boxing legend Nigel kicks off life in the paid ranks at Middleweight under the guidance of training duo Dominic Negus and Lenny Butcher at the Five Star ABC in Romford, Essex. Harley, from Hornchurch, will be managed by Hall of Fame promoter Frank Warren and is aiming to achieve big things in the fight game.
“This is my journey,” said Benn. “I’m not trying to follow in the footsteps of my dad; I’m doing this my way. However, I can definitely see similarities in the way we fight. I’m a come forward type of fighter and pack a big punch. I don’t like fighting on the back foot, I love a fight.
“I can’t wait to get in the ring and show people what I’m all about. I’m definitely more excited than nervous. Training has been going really well and I’m fitter than I’ve ever been. I’ve got just over a month til I fight and I’m going to be in the best shape of my life.
