Conor Benn Reinstated By The WBC Despite Two Failed VADA Tests

The WBC has decided to put Conor Benn back in their rankings due to the fact that the disproportionate number of eggs consumed was a reasonable justification for his positive drug test from last year.

Prior to his planned fight with Chris Eubank Jr, Benn tested positive for clomiphene after failing two VADA tests. The British Boxing Board of Control (BBBoC), therefore, did not sanction the bout.

As the fight was called off, the WBC took the action of taking away Benn’s standings in the world rankings. Despite being reinstated by the WBC, following an appeal, he is still being looked into by UKAD and the BBBoC.

After all, the WBC has no power to decide who should have a license which is up to the BBBoC. As a result, Benn will not be able to fight in the United Kingdom until this investigation has concluded.

Nonetheless, it is conceivable that he could fight outside of the UK under a different jurisdiction.
