By Barry Holbrook: Matchroom Boxing revealed moments in the past that the Chris Eubank Jr vs. Conor Benn has been postponed. There’s no phrase for when the competition will probably be rescheduled, so the followers might want to wait & see when or if that can occur.
Matchroom states that the British Boxing Board of Management’s transfer to not sanction the Eubank Jr-Benn combat was flawed and with out due course of.
It’s unclear if the BBBoF had entry to Benn’s B-sample for his constructive check for the banned drug clomifene earlier than they selected to not sanction the combat.
Ideally, you’d wish to have seen the B-sample revealed earlier than the BBBofC made their determination to not sanction the combat. Hearn stated on Wednesday that the B-sample wouldn’t be revealed by Saturday.
Now, will probably be attention-grabbing to study if Benn (21-0, 14 KOs) will probably be suspended or banned from boxing following his constructive check. We noticed the massive backlash in opposition to Jarrell ‘Massive Child’ Miller after his constructive assessments. Will there be the identical blowback within the case of the Matchroom-promoted Conor Benn?
On Wednesday, it was realized that the British Boxing Board of Management wouldn’t be sanctioning the Eubank Jr-Benn combat resulting from Benn’s constructive check.
Eddie Hearn talked of retaining the combat going, presumably utilizing one other fee, making it an exhibition match, or acquiring an injunction. However in accordance with the Each day Mail, the Eubank Jr vs. Benn combat is “shelved.”
Naturally, followers are indignant in regards to the combat being canceled, significantly those that had already paid to observe it on pay-per-view. These followers might want to get their a reimbursement.
Given all of the anger aimed toward Conor Benn over his constructive check, it might be clever for Hearn & Matchroom to completely neglect about rescheduling the combat with Eubank Jr.
It could be higher for Benn to maneuver on and return to the welterweight division quite than revisit the thought of combating Eubank Jr. Hearn had talked about wanting Benn to problem for a world title at 147.
That will be a good suggestion as a result of if Benn can seize a world title at welterweight or, on the very least, beat a proficient contender like Jaron ‘Boots’ Ennis, a number of the warmth that’s on him now will probably be forgotten.
Benn will clearly have to be strictly examined for any fights that he takes from this level on as a result of the followers & his opponents will need to know he’s clear.
