Conor Benn vs Sebastian Formella LIVE RESULTS: UK start time, stream, TV channel, undercard for big welterweight fight – The Sun

CONOR BENN hasn't fought for over a year – and he's being welcomed back to the sport with a big test.

'The Destroyer' is undefeated in his pro career so far and could last be seen knocking out Steven Jamoye at the O2 last October.

Benn was meant to fight again in the spring but coronavirus scuppered those plans – so he's back this weekend against IBO welterweight titleholder Formella.

Formella dropped a decision to former two-time world champion Shawn Porter in August, so this will be his second fight of the pandemic.

  • Benn vs Formella is expected to start around 9.45pm UK time.
  • Benn vs Formella is live on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Arena.
  • You can live stream the action from your NOW TV or Sky Go app on a tablet or mobile device.

    The fan-friendly Ghana giant is up on his feet unaided.

    The defeated visitor is lifted to a stool in the ring and given oxygen.

    The Son of the Eagle needs medical attention in the ring after Wardley ruffled his feathers.

    The referee didn't even make it to 10 before waving it off.

    Wardley starts well but Lartey clips him with a hook.

    Lartey keeps walking forward with a high guard so Wardley is only hitting gloves.

    Wardley gets pinned in a corner and the ref tells them to box their way out of it.

    Lartey keeps marching on, Wardley tries to pick him off. The bell ends a tasty opener.

    HERE HE IS..

    Richard 'Son of the Eagle' Lartey dances and sings his way into the ring.

    Lartey is giving this ringwalk absolutely everything, he could be shattered by the first bell,

    “I am an eagle, an African eagle!” his ringwalk song bellows.

    Lartey is having this biiiiiiiig time.

  • Wally Downes Jr


    Richard Lartey had a toe-to-toe war with British champion Daniel Dubois and took Nathan Gorman the distance last time out.

    The Ghana giant now stands menacingly in the way of rising Ipswich ace Fabio Wardley.

    Will Lartey finally land a London win on his third visit?

    Or will Dillian Whyte-managed Wardley continue his rapid rise?

    Babic lands a left and Little retreats to the ropes.

    The Savage unloads a dozen hooks into Little's ribs and he shouts “come on, punch me Babic!”

    Babic hurls an uppercut from his ankles but Little slips it and clips him back. This is madness.

    Babic ends the session thumping away but this skinny new-look little is tough.

  • Wally Downes Jr


    Do not blink!

    Babic has vowed to end it inside two rounds.

    And Little vowed to stand and trade leather with the powerhouse.

    Little starts shrewdly, jabbing and holding and evading Babic's bombs.

    Smith scores again with a crisp one-two but Ridings whacks back with a left hook.
