British boxer Conor Benn has been putting in the hard yards as he prepares for his upcoming fight against Rodolfo Orozco in Florida. In a recent video posted to social media, Benn showed off his intense training session, which left him drenched in sweat.
Benn, 26, went for a pre-fight run to get his blood pumping and his heart racing ahead of the big fight. The Florida heat proved to be a challenging opponent as the boxer worked up a heavy sweat during his jog.
Ring of Sweat
After completing his run, Benn wasn't shy about showing off just how hard he had been working. In a video posted to Instagram, the boxer can be seen wringing out pints of sweat from his T-shirt. This display of dedication and hard work garnered the attention and support of his 733k followers.
Fans Show Their Support
It's clear that Benn's fans are eagerly awaiting his next fight. The video sparked a flurry of positive comments, with one fan writing, "Let's go, champ," and another hailing Benn as a "beast." Many fans expressed their excitement for his upcoming bout with Orozco.
Benn's journey has not been without its challenges. The boxer was slated to face Chris Eubank Jr in October 2022, but the fight was cancelled after Benn failed two voluntary drug tests. This controversy has left him unable to compete in the UK, but he has obtained a valid license from the Florida Athletic Commission to continue his boxing career in the US.
Next Stop: Orlando
Benn will be looking to kick-start his boxing career in Orlando, Florida, where he will take on Rodolfo Orozco on the undercard of the super-lightweight clash between Richardson Hitchins and Jose Zepeda. With his sights set on redemption, Benn is determined to make a statement in the ring.
After watching his impressive display of determination and perseverance, it's clear that Benn won't be holding anything back come fight night.
