What have you heard?
Benn stated, "I'm excited about stepping into the ring alongside Chris Van Heerden."
"Van Heerden, a tough operator and a Southpaw, will give it all every round.
"It's now all about fighting every style as we head towards World Championship status. Van Heerden brings something new to the table that I have never faced before.
"With that being stated, this is another stepstone for me on the journey to the top. I haven’t seen anything in Van Heerden’s previous fights I can’t deal with and I expect another explosive win on April 16.
"If he is interested in boxing or fighting, I can deliver the smoke in either direction!"
