Less than a year into his professional career, Conor Benn has a perfect record of 6-0, experience of fighting on some of the biggest pay-per-view events in world boxing and developed the sort of crossover appeal that's seen him become the new face of Reebok's men's training range for SS17.

For any other 20-year-old fighter, success on this scale, this fast, would be nothing less than a sensation and an excuse to rest on your laurels for a few months. For Conor Benn – who's still fighting in the shadow of his father, the legendary Nigel Benn – the fight for recognition is only just beginning.

Nigel Benn spearheaded the last great golden era of British boxing, alongside the likes of Chris Eubank and Frank Buno, in the early 1990s. But with the likes of new heavyweight king Anthony Joshua, the ever-enigmatic Chris Eubank Jr and – now – Conor Benn on the cusp of victory on the global stage, there's an anticipation that history is about to repeat itself.

Conor Benn isn't as heavy as his father – but they're already showing similarities in every other aspect; brutal body shots, natural born charisma and a simmering rivalry with a Eubank that threatens to reach boiling point at some point down the line.

'The Destroyer' is on the frontline of boxing's new generation. He spoke to Complex on his newfound fame, similarities with the other Conor in combat sports and boxing in the shadow of his father.
