Sebastian Formella is a guy we recently saw when he went over to the United States and challenged Shawn Porter. He came up short in that fight as he was badly beaten over 12 rounds. What was interesting however, was the fact that he was able to survive the whole 12 rounds with Shawn Porter. He was thoroughly outclassed and he was nailed with a lot of clean punches but he just showed a tremendous chin. He looked like he would get stopped just after a few rounds and he managed to hang in there round after round. The fight was one of those that takes away from your prime years if you are Formella. He was almost a punching in that fight bag getting battered from corner to corner. In Formella´s best career performance he was able to beat Thulani Mbenge who is a powerful welterweight but somehow limited technically. Conor Benn is talented but he seems to have a long ways to go before he will be good enough to challenge one of the World Champions. This is a close fight but the home advantage goes to Benn and he has that big name value that can sway the rounds in close fights. (sign in to view our prediction & pick)
Formella took a lot of shots against porter both to the head and body and he stayed on his feet. If Porter couldn´t stop him, we don´t believe that Benn will stop him either. Conor Benn has the advantages here and we see him getting the win by decision. The Pick is Conor Benn to win this fight by decision.
