Conor Benn has voluntarily surrendered his boxing license after the British Boxing Board upheld allegations of misconduct against the boxer.

His featherweight bout with Chris Eubank Jr. was scrapped after allegations of a failed drug test were published by a British newspaper.

A second negative finding was also reported after the event was cancelled. Since then, Ben has kept his secret to clear his name.

Conor Benn’s Boxing License

However, after Friday’s hearing, Ben had his license revoked board continues the investigation further.

The BBBofC said: “In a communication dated October 17, 2022, the BBBofC Board summoned Mr. Connor Benn to attend a hearing on allegations of misconduct pursuant to rule 25.1.1.

“The hearing was held on October 21, 2022. On the morning of the hearing, Mr. Benn voluntarily surrendered his license to the BBBofC.

“In accordance with its rules and regulations, the Board determined the charges following a hearing at which Mr. Benn was legally represented.

“Allegations of misconduct against Mr. Benn have been upheld.”

Ben faces a ruined reputation if he can’t prove the allegations false, as his career was set to enter the realm of world title fights.

He declared his innocence

Promoter Eddie Hearn said Benn was innocent, as was Benn’s father, boxing legend Nigel Benn.

Even Chris Eubank Sr. supported “The Destroyer” in the comments after the shocking story was revealed.

WBC president Mauricio Suleiman mentioned the devastating nature of drug test failures in his previous World Boxing Council column.

He supported VADA, the company that reported Ben’s test failure.

“Doping is a very complex problem and also incredibly legal. The intervention of judicial processes is fundamental, and therefore the execution of the CBP program must be flawless.

“The WBC has full confidence in VADA and is proud to continue to grow its activities every year.

“There is another modality of CBP or VADA. Promoters hire a program to test boxers who have randomly scheduled fights.

“These fighters are subjected to all sorts of random, unannounced tests before the fight.”

Promoted by Connor Benn

Suleiman also highlights Ben’s promoters at Matchroom for their involvement in fair sport.

“I want to thank the advertising companies that believe in clean boxing. They invest a lot of money in keeping their pride like Premier Boxing Champions and TGB, Top Rank, Matchroom Boxing and others.

“Constantly contract this service for important fights and even random tests for fighters under contract with their company.”

Hearn promised to make a statement on Ben’s case last week. Now it becomes clear why this has not happened yet.
