Conor Benn Cleared By UKAD Following Two Failed VADA Tests

Conor Benn has been found not guilty by UKAD following his two failed VADA tests for Clomiphene.

Benn had been on course to face Chris Eubank Jr. only for the bout to be pulled following the failed tests.

As a result, Eubank set up a fight with Liam Smith on September 2nd, 2023, as Benn waited for the outcome.

And now that the fighter has been cleared, he has the ability to fight in the UK once again. As such, a possible fight with Eubank Jr. could follow later down the line.

In response, Eddie Hearn was delighted by the news.

“He spent hundreds and thousands going through that process,’ Hearn said. ‘The result is imminent. I believe him. It’s been one year since the test.

“But, every day he’s had untold stick. And, if he’s clear – and I hope he will be – I hope some people understand what he went through,” Hearn

 

“Today marks the end of the of a gruelling 10 month process, during which the WBC had already decided that I was innocent of any wrongdoing.

“After a hearing with the National Anti-Doping Panel and UKAD, I have now been vindicated for the second time.

“Hopefully the public and various members of the media can now understand why I have maintained my innocence so strongly all the way through.

“The UKAD process has now formally ended, and I remain free to fight,” Benn

Despite this being the case, the social media response suggested that it would take some time for Benn to win over the boxing fans.
