Lenny Fuller tells Harley Benn "Let's go!"

In an interview with iFL TV, Maidstone's Lenny Fuller (6-0) revealed his desire to face fellow unbeaten prospect Harley Benn (6-0).

The 'Main Man', 24 from Chart Sutton, Kent, won his second six-rounder on points at the Brentwood Centre on May 11 onthe undercard of Liam Walsh's ring return.

After collecting a sixth successive points win against Nicaraguan Geiboord Omier (4-40-1), he said, "Good to get a run out, I'm all good, on to the next one now, after this I'm looking to get bigger fights. Going to go back to the team and manager, see where I'm at in sparring, I'm ready for an eight-rounder next.

"I want bigger fights with undefeated boys, someone like Harley Benn. Someone like that, I reckon I could take a chance and see what happens.

"He's a big name because of his dad but it's nothing against him personally, it's just I want to climb the rankings."

Londoner Benn, 22-year-old so of former world champion Nigel Benn, is also 6-0 with one knockout to his name.

Coincidentally, his last opponent was also Geiboord Omier, who he defeated 40-46 in a four-rounder at the same setting in Brentwood.

Managed by Joe Elfidh, the plan for his welterweight charge is to get him an eight-rounder soon, followed by a Southern Area title fight towards the end of 2019.

Elfidh explained, "Another good learning fight for Lenny in the bag. We'll be sitting down in the week to discuss the next three fights, but we'll be considering a Challenge belt contest this year, then Southern Area soon after.

"He works hard, he's a full-time pro so he's constantly in the gym. I think he's the future of boxing in Kent and he's ready to be let off the leash."

Trained by Lee Page at the Maidstone-based Combat Sports Academy, Chart Sutton’s Fuller has so far experienced a whirlwind start to his paid career with six contests within his debut year punching for pay.

Fuller also wants to end 2019 on a Southern Area title fight, “By the end the of the year I want to have the Southern Area title, that’s my goal. I’m looking to get to 10-0 with the Area belt at the end of 2019.”

A former amateur boxer at Westry ABC, Fuller won titles in the IBA, EBA, UKBC unlicensed scene and competed in the Queensbury Boxing League before turning pro with JE Promotions.
