The BBBofC (British Boxing Board of Control) are still not satisfied that the situation which prevented the bout against Eubank Jr from taking place has reached an adequate resolution.
However, The Destroyer is not suspended from boxing while the appeal process continues, meaning he can fight outside the UK.
And he is doing exactly that, making his return to action in the USA in September against Rodolfo Orozco, who he beat on points.
Benn now takes on little-known American Dobson who is 16-0 in his career at welterweight.
Here's everything you need to know ahead of Conor Benn vs Peter Dobson.
Date: Saturday, February 3.
Time: At 10:00 PM ET
This fight is scheduled to take place on Saturday, February 3. It will be held at The Chelsea at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas in the USA. The main event is set to begin at midday local time which is around 11pm UK time.
Speaking about his main event slot in Las Vegas, Benn said: "Headlining in Vegas is a dream come true, not just for me, but for any fighter who grew up watching the sport of boxing.
"Vegas has been the stage for many legends before me, and I can't wait to step into that arena on February 3 against the undefeated welterweight Peter Dobson, who stepped up to accept the challenge when many wouldn’t.
"I was disappointed when my previous fight fell through, but in this sport, when one door shuts, another one opens.
"This setback has brought me back to where I need to be, and I'm here to put the entire 147lbs division on notice.
"I want to thank my family, my dedicated team, my loyal friends, and fans who have supported me throughout my journey.
"We have an exciting 2024 ahead of us, starting with our Vegas debut, marking the beginning of our pursuit for world welterweight championships."
