Conor Benn was forced to dig deep to come through a six-round war with Cedrick Peynaud on Wednesday night and the Londoner has now shown off his wounds from the grueling encounter.

The 21-year-old was dropped twice by Peynaud in the first round, in an encounter that saw both men leave it all in the ring.

Benn returned the favour in the fifth and sixth round and was handed a controversial win on the scorecard by judge Bob Williams.
