How to watch Conor Benn vs. Rodolfo Orozco: Date, start time, price for Benn’s 2023 return fight

After more than a year away from the ring, Conor Benn is ready to return. The controversial figure from the U.K. competes on a Matchroom Boxing card against Rodolfo Orozco on September 23. 

The fight airs on DAZN worldwide and is at the Caribe Royale in Orlando. It is the co-main event under the super lightweight fight of Richardson Hitchins vs. Jose Zepeda. The only title fight on the card features Jessica McCaskill vs. Sandy Ryan in a welterweight unification title bout. 

The son of former world champion Nigel Benn, Conor turned pro at 19 in 2016. Winner of 14 fights via knockout, Benn was going to face Chris Eubank Jr., but the fight got scrapped after the former failed multiple drug tests after testing positive for clomifene.

It was determined by the WBC the failed tests were a result of a “highly elevated consumption of eggs.” UKAD suspended Benn from competing in the U.K., while the Florida Boxing Commission accepted a Benn fight a few days before this weekend’s event.

Given how quickly it got announced and an ongoing appeal, social media was buzzing about the decision to allow Benn to fight. Eddie Hearn quickly defended the booking.

“So excited. I mean, obviously, it’s been 18 months now since he’s boxed. He’s been through a lot, he’s been through an arduous process — two processes now, two hearings — and cleared to fight,” Hearn told talkSPORT. 

“He’s cleared to box, and that’s the reason he’s fighting this Saturday… we’re interested in seeing Conor Benn back in the ring, he’s gonna have this fight Saturday night in Orlando and then a massive fight himself in December…

“I saw a lot of things saying, ‘Oh, he’s hopping around the world to fight.’ No, the ABC of America spoke to the British Boxing Board of Control to confirm that he’s not suspended and, ultimately, he is clear to fight.”

Orozco turned pro in 2015 and has 32 wins, with a knockout rate of 75%. The Mexican fighter is on a two-fight win streak, beating Elian Trejo Juarez in his last bout in June.
