After Conor Benn and The Destroyer’s fight was postponed due to The Destroyer’s failed drug test, Chris Eubank Jr started to tease Conor.
When it was announced that Benn tested negatively for clomifene after being tested by the Voluntary Anti-Doping Association in August, the eagerly awaited fight was put in risk on Wednesday.
The World Anti-Doping Agency has outlawed the medication, which is often used to treat female infertility but has the potential to boost male testosterone.
The British Boxing Board of Control forbade the match from happening, despite the fact that promoters Kalle Sauerland and Eddie Hearn initially insisted it would go through as scheduled.
2019 saw American heavyweight Jarrell Miller training to face Anthony Joshua when he got an extraordinary hat-trick of three failed drug tests for GW1516, HGH, and EPO that were announced in the span of three days.
Joshua’s fight with Miller was called off due to Miller’s test results, but not before the boxing media asked some of the biggest stars in the UK, including Benn, to comment on the American heavyweight’s test findings. Joshua ultimately decided to fight Andy Ruiz in New York.
Benn was speaking to Sky Sports about Miller’s failed drug tests when Eubank posted a video of the interview to social media with the caption: “I mean, I really simply don’t have any words at this moment.”
Benn begins the video by expressing his astonishment. I just learned about it when I arrived at the gym this morning; I can’t believe it.

It confuses me that you could have the biggest fight of your career, the biggest night of your life, and still test positive for a prohibited substance.
My nutritionist criticises me for using Vitamin C pills that haven’t been tested even though I’m not even at the top of the globe.
Therefore, the group of people he is surrounded by should tell him to “Listen, check all your substances.” Why put it at risk when you could be making a few decent pounds?
Benn has spoken to the public twice after discovering that he was a clomifene positive.
He first asserted his innocence in a YouTube interview with Matchroom before releasing a written statement after the bout was formally called off to reiterate his innocence.
