Chris Eubank Sr. is still enraged with the promoters who attempted to make the Chris Eubank Jr. vs. Conor Benn fight materialise, despite the fight being postponed.
Last weekend’s match between the two British fighters was cancelled after Benn tested positive for the illegal drug clomifene.
A medication called clomifene can increase testosterone levels in men as well as women. It is commonly used to treat female infertility.
Benn failed a drug test, but Eubank Sr. still has faith that the 26-year-old is a moral fighter.
Instead, the former two-weight world champion is adamant that Benn’s surroundings are the issue.
On the The Fight is Right podcast, Eubank Sr. said, “When I look at a fighter, I look at the spirit in them.
“Conor, in my opinion, would not have known what they would advise he should have. I’ve observed them doing it. I have seen them.
These are males who will be eliminated from the game because they are PE teachers rather than soldiers.
“I appreciate them, but not when they are hurting boxers. Conor Benn, in my opinion, is a pure young man.

Before the failing drugs test was revealed, Eubank Sr. tried to break up the fight and even urged spectators to stay away out of worry for his son’s health given the drastic weight loss he had to undergo.
While Eubank Jr. had fought for the majority of his career between 160 and 168 lbs. and even admitted that he hadn’t weighed in so low since he was 18 years old, the bout had been agreed upon at a catchweight of 157 lbs.
The fight’s promoters attempted to override the BBBoC’s (British Boxing Board of Control) decision to ‘prohibit’ the fight even after Benn failed a drugs test, but they were unsuccessful, and now Eubank Sr has accused them of trying to’murder’ his son.
Conor, I advised you not to do this since you have a bright future ahead of you. The Americans can be defeated. Why don’t we collaborate? Our group versus the American group? I talked to him in a way that a father would talk to a kid. They don’t compare to me, Eubank Sr. remarked.
“I told Nigel [Benn] to refrain from attending these speaking engagements. You’ll be under too much pressure as a result of allowing them to lead your son into a pit. a trap.
He’s a clean boy. He is a good man and a formidable opponent. But you’re taking care of us combatants like toddlers. Toddlers.
“These individuals are known as managers and promoters. I’m coming for you, guys. You attempted to kill my boys. I’m going to get you.
