Conor Benn Reacts To The BBBofC And UKAD’s Suspension Appeal – ‘Clearly An Agenda Against Me’

Conor Benn has responded to The British Boxing Board of Control (BBBofC) and the UK Anti-Doping Agency’s [UKAD] decision to appeal the removal of his suspension.

Benn’s suspension from UKAD was removed following the decision of the National Anti-Doping Panel (NADP). UKAD had initially suspended Benn in April after he had failed two tests for clomiphene.

Reports indicated that Benn’s defense focused on UKAD’s inability to enforce VADA findings since the boxer did not have a BBBofC license. However, UKAD and the BBBofC decided to appeal.

This was understandable since the ruling would have had the impact of making VADA tests unenforceable in the UK since fighters could give up their license and argue jurisdictional issues.

Although Benn will appear before a hearing, he has had a few choice words to say about it all.

“There is clearly an agenda against me. We have seen that from the start of this process. As I have said before, I am innocent. Nothing has changed. I remain confident in my position. I will not be commenting further while I let the legal process play out,” Benn said
