“The match between Formella and Vargas was a great experience for me because they showed me that I am a fighter,” Benn said. “You hear people say they fight for the crowd and need a crowd. You don’t need crowds there. It could be Donald Duck and Mickey Mouse sitting next to me for all I care about. I don’t care who’s there, it’s me and my opponent and I’m going in there to beat him. That is my job. That is my goal; and i will finish it.

“Granados said it all and we thought he was coming to fight. He did not come to fight; he didn’t even come to win. He said he had to beat England’s ‘golden boy’ to win but he rode his bike up. I could also have been there with a journeyman because that’s how he goes on. He is very negative; he never threw any meaningful photos and he never got involved. I wasn’t able to take advantage of anything. There’s only so much you can do against someone who’s not coming to win.

“My preparation for Algieri has been excellent. Every camp we build and build. We grow and develop. I plan to show off my boxing brain on December 11. Every camp I have, I don’t think I can push my body any further, but I tried. You have to push your body to the max. Before you know it, you’re approaching new PB. That’s the norm for every camp. You are always learning. I am a student of the game and the school never goes out. I’m always working on something.

“I was in the top 5 with the WBC and the top 10 with the WBA and IBF. That doesn’t make me happy. I want to be number one. No one can match as my father used to say. I believe there is much more for me to prove, not to anyone else, but to myself. When I first turned pro, everyone thought I was best at the Southern Regional level, then British and best then European. I’m knocking on the door for a World Title and I believe 2022 will be my year to take on some of these World Champions. I continue to prove myself every time anyone they put in front of me.

“It will be a special Christmas. It’s a Christmas cookie, that’s it. You will always be criticized for the people you fight with. People are saying Algieri is old. He’s 37 years old and he’s taking care of himself, but I’m gearing up for a top Chris Algieri and I’m confident he’ll deliver absolutely everything. He is a former world champion. We’re testing the waters in my career. We need these battles to test the waters and see where I am. I believe I am world class and I should beat people like Chris Algieri easily. I am very confident in my abilities and everything that we have done and are doing. I have to go in there and leave my stamp. The moment I smelled a little blood, I was like a rash on him.”
