According to reports, Conor Benn was temporarily suspended by the UK Anti-Doping (UKAD) agency on March 15th, 2023, following his two failed tests for clomiphene.
The case has dominated the British headlines for all the wrong reasons, as the sport of boxing has been under heavy scrutiny.
While Benn has been reinstated by the WBC, as of now, he has failed to clear his name with the British Boxing Board of Control/UKAD.
And as confidence within the sport has been shaken, following Amir Khan’s recent positive test for Ostarine, Benn is now allegedly cooperating.
The infamous 270–page report, which Benn has been so vocal about, has been submitted to UKAD, as per Eddie Hearn’s comments.
Should UKAD still determine that Benn is guilty, he could face a two-year ban. This could potentially hamper the Brit’s plans on fighting overseas on June 3rd, 2023, in Abu Dhabi.
However, Benn remained defiant in the face of controversy, stating that his plans had not changed.
