Who is Luke Bennett fighting?
Bennett's opponent in the fight has changed like the wind. Originally the slim-framed TikToker was due to fight Dean LM (@deanlm) at the O2 Arena. Dean LM, who has over 344.8k followers, then pulled out of the fight.
Bennett was next set to square up to Ginty (@itsnotginty1 on TikTok) who his known for making funny skits. The two faced off at a press conference last month.
However, Ginty announced earlier this month that he was no longer fighting Bennett due to the significant difference in weight. Instead Ginty is fighting KayRhys (@kayrhys1).
Bennett said in an interview yesterday with Fred Talks Fighting that he is again set to fight Dean LM. He said it "still baffles" him as to why Dean backed out and has agreed to fight again. He added Dean did not show up for the most recent press conference. "So hopefully he shows up."
