Despite Eddie Hearn's plans to pit Haney against Ryan Garcia in a lucrative bout, the elder Haney's proposition has sparked speculation about a potential showdown between Benn and the younger Haney.

Benn, showing no hesitation, expressed his eagerness for the match, stating, "I’m keen for that fight. I’m ready to go.” A clash with Haney would not only elevate Benn's career but also offer a chance to prove himself against one of boxing's rising stars. Bill Haney, recognizing the legacy of the Benn family, hinted at the honor such a bout would bring, adding a layer of respect to the potential encounter.
