Why do you get fined for driving 100mph on Tuesday but not for driving 30mph on Friday?
My bad, yes of course, I was thinking it stayed in your system longer.
I have just heard Gareth A Davies say that UKAD only tested the fighters once.
Yeah, but Gareth speaks with a forked tongue most of the time.

Looks like UKAD are gonna investigate the VADA Positive test. If Benn can’t prove his innocence, he faces upto a 4 year ban.

Mmmm , So they ask for the results , look them over and say Gotcha ,, your banned ,, bENN AND hEARN SAY HANG ON , HANG ON ,, WE WANT THE SECOND b SAMPLE TESTED , you can't prove nothing without that ,, UKAD and Vada say alright lets do it .

Said sample is done comes back positive , Ukad say your banned ,, Hearn and Benn say , hang on hang on ,, you were not authorised to look , Vada were not allowed to release it to you , you will here from our lawyers , Vada says we never shown Ukad , Ukad says whoops sorry was just messing about really we did'nt illigaly look at your medical records , accept our apology please it was a joke , .

Some very hard discisions should be made now , some rules changed and back dated ,, to start with BBBC should straight away recognise VADA , , don't they issue the bans not Ukad , i' don't know the answer to that one ,,,

but really this is the time to start changing rules , saying ENOUGH is Enough and finally start attempting to get on top of it , because british boxing from bad stoppages , to incompetent refs , to , promoters with funny eyes not paying fighters , to car salesmen promoters ruling the roost and changing goal post to suit themselves all sends out the same message , that british boxing is a mess .

Get it sorted and do it now , start by giving Benn a lifetime ban , he's what 27 , give him 10 years , that should be enough to finish him , 5 for taking peds and another 5 for being a cocky little prick with a chip on his shoulder ,, give his trainer 5 years for allowing both , and probably being involved .

Then maybee take Hearns promoters liscence for say 2 years for bringing the game into disrepute , if that don't stick well maybee just cos he's a prick , if that don't stick at least he may stop being a prick for a little while , Then have a look at some guy with big eyes , and a shoulder roll ,, look , wag your finger and say ,, c'mon boyo make my day , your next , any lip out of you and your gone , behave or make my day ,, and by the way from now on each and every purse for every fight from now on is to be put in escrow , full amount for both boxers in the bank BEFORE they fight , and no money up front no fight , it should be argued if you can't afford it you should'nt put the show on ,, might even bring the masive purses down a bit and tv can afford the big fights who knows .

But regardless some of this post is deadly serious , some tongue in cheek , but , the time is now to clean it up , why because after this latest shambles , The public is sick of it and would support a clean sweep , maybee it may take some form of govt control of BBBC but it would be worth it

What was Hearns dream for Matchroom and DANZ when he left Sky? Cannae imagine it was this dugshite!

The big Xmas spectacular? Hold on to your seats everyone, Shannon’s back for the holiday season - a Christmas cracker…..

Absolute shite. Some blowhard whose done a bit of boxercise and is so fecking ignorant to the business that she genuinely believes she’s a contender.

Very short memories in boxing. How else do we explain Don King still screwing fighters over and getting away with it.

Hearn will survive

He won't just survive, he will thrive. Most of the big promoters have had one (or more) of their boxers fail a test.

I hate PEDs and someone is going to die in the ring as a consequence of them one day.

Of course he will.

Will be interesting to see what he says if/when he gets grilled properly about this. He’ll probably just say it’s with the lawyers though. I think sometimes promoters get too close to the fighters and may end up genuinely believing the BS reasons they’ve been given. Even still I’ve lost respect for him pushing the BBBC on this to keep the fight on. At least they didn’t go down the foreign body route.

I’ve lost respect for Eddie on this. He’s in the past spoken fairly well about drugs, has insisted on VADA (even when not necessary) but I think he’s put the bank balance, and pushing of DAZN, ahead of his morals here. Perhaps there’s more to the story as it’d be a complete 180 for him if he knows what we know about the failed test.

They should have tested the B-sample, had hair follicle testing performed and have been doing everything possible to try and prove innocence - if he is innocent. The fact they haven’t says a lot.

I’ve said it before on here that my biggest issue remains with the board. Fighters want to get paid and they want to fight. Promoters want to get paid, drive viewers to their network and do what their fighters want them to do. Neither really have a duty of care to the standing of the sport. The BBBC do and they have a responsibility to make sure the fighters are safe. They seemingly knew about this for a couple of weeks and did nothing which I still find shocking. If they Daily Mail don’t report, the fight’s still on. Makes you wonder.

Case in point we had Valdez last year fail a test and still fight with Top Rank for a world title. Arum pushed for it to take place and made excuses for his fighter.

Yep.

Makes you wonder how much money Matchroom, Wasserman and DAZN have lost because of Conor Benn's indiscretion.

It was at least a £10m fight with PPV and the O2 gate. I bet Eddie’s biggest objective was getting DAZN a multiplier on their current subscriber base. If he can show they’ve got 500k subscribers in the U.K. then it’s easier to attract other fighters and put on better shows.

That may be so, but something or someone needs to explain why UKAD didn’t pick up the fact that Benn had clomifenein his body when VADA did.

It suggests that the BBBoC anti-doping provisions are inadequate.

Without VADA testing UKAD would never have known of this and the fight would have took place. That’s a big concern.

Time for the BBBoC to start using VADA.

That's simple, they took samples on different days. He was clean on one day and dirty on the other.

I dunno , I think there has been a massive public backlash over this and don't see it being that simple .
Don't think Benn's fights will be an easy sell for ever now .
Sadly, he's just the latest in a long line. Time heals all wounds and all that. It didn't do Fury any harm.
Fury, very sagely judging the zeitgeist, invented “mental health problems” and played that card over and over until he had the public on his side

You’re speculating. It would be good to hear official clarification.

If UKAD only conducted one test on Benn throughout camp then that is inadequate.

I’d like to know how many VADA tests versus UKAD tests.

Also, VADA wouldn’t be employed at huge expense if UKAD was sufficient or as effective. Why else use VADA when UKAD is involved?
