Matchroom boss Eddie Hearn today announced that Conor Benn will appear on the Amir Khan vs Phil Lo Greco undercard at the Echo Arena, Liverpool on April 21st.

The 21-year-old was floored twice in the opening round against Frenchman Cedrick Peynaud last December on the Katie Taylor vs Jessica McCaskill undercard.

Benn, whose left eye was cut and his right eye badly swollen by the end, showed heart and guts to get the decision 57-54, and move to 11-0-KO9.

Although, many boxing fans believe the contest should have gone the way of the Frenchman and righty highlight Benn's lack of ring intelligence during the bout.

As you can see below, Conor came away from the fight with some nice black eyes.

The York Hall classic was Conor’s fifth fight in as many months after being sidelined for the first half of 2018 with a broken jaw. He then suffered a severe skin allergy before his American debut against Brandon Sanudo.

"The Destroyer's" opponent has yet to be announced.
