A clash between Conor Benn and Kell Brook occurred today, as both were ringside at the 3Arena in Dublin, Ireland, as the two were on-hand to witness the undisputed junior welterweight bout between Katie Taylor and Chantelle Cameron.
The incident happened when Brook was being interviewed as part of the broadcast. Benn appeared out of nowhere, to get into a heated confrontation with the former world champion. Brook, who retired from the sport of boxing in 2022 after knocking out Amir Khan, has flirted with a possible return, and Conor Benn has often been mentioned as a potential dance partner.
‼️ Conor Benn and Kell Brook in a heated clash ringside at Katie Taylor vs Chantelle Cameron…— Michael Benson (@MichaelBensonn) May 20, 2023
Benn was suspended from competition in the United Kingdom after two positive tests before a pay-per-view last October against Chris Eubank Jr. Benn is currently being reported by ProBoxTV News as returning on June 17th, on the Regis Prograis card, with no set opponent.
Benn has pleaded his innocence over the allegations against him, and Brook has been very vocal about his stance for stern punishment for those who have tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs, even going as far as saying a lifetime ban should be imposed.
It appears the two have some unfinished business and in the boxing business that could mean a fight is looming.
