Last year, Benn won against Algieri, Adrian Granados and Samuel Vargas.

Hearn considered Hooker a very difficult opponent for his young boxer.

“Any of them,” Hearn tell professional boxing fans. “Adrien Broner really wanted a fight back first and then he talked about fighting Conor Benn.

“Guerrero works with PBC, who don’t seem to want to send fighters into big fights with us and Hooker is a fighter and he’s a very good fighter. It was a very, very tough fight. He had a great fight with Ortiz last time, having stopped with a hand injury. If he wants it and the team wants it too, it would be nice to do that fight in London. ”
