Tomer Benny's Pro Debut Pushed Back to the End of the Year

Tomer Benny, the southpaw junior welterweight, has decided to delay his pro debut. He had been scheduled to fight this weekend in Mexico.

The Tel Aviv native now splits time between his hometown and Las Vegas in the United States where he has learned from Wayne McCullough and Floyd Mayweather Sr. He plans to fight in a local tournament in Vegas before competing in the under-22 European amateur championships in October.

Benny is looking to turn pro at the end of the year. There's no rush for the 19 year old. The delay will simply give him time to gain more experience. While in Vegas, he has already increased his boxing education by sparring with former world champion Jamel Herring and rising star Curmel Morton.
