Conor Benn’s trainer Tony Sims is ‘devastated’ by the news that his fight against Chris Eubank Jr has been cancelled. The veteran coach has never had one of his fighters fail an anti-doping test during his 26 years in the sport but has been met with the news that Benn returned adverse findings for the banned substance clomifene in a drugs test carried out by VADA.

“After 26 years in boxing, a sport I love and have dedicated my life to, I can say hand on heart that I have never experienced or witnessed any athlete in my camp fail an anti-doping test, voluntary or mandatory and I stand proud by that fact.



“Today leaves me truly devastated as we call a postponement to such an amazing event that I was honoured to say I was part of. I have worked closely with Conor Benn for the last 7 years, developing and mentoring him as a fighter in the ring and a man outside of it.

"In particular we have completed this recent 12-week camp alongside Nigel, his father who has lived with Conor day to day, beginning to end. Having spoken to Conor personally in length surrounding the subject and listening to him, I support him as a coach and a friend.

“We are determined to get to the bottom of this as a team, working closely with Conor’s legal advisors in an effort to understand the meaning of the ‘adverse finding’ and resolve this matter urgently. Thank you for your continued support, TS.”
"Adverse findings" .

fornicate off Tony it's a POSITIVE test.

They're trying to spin this as some mistaken results due to incorrect testing procedure or contamination. The cheek here is just breathtaking.

He still not saying anything regarding Benn though has he??
No he won't because the party line is Conor hasn't failed a test, there were 'adverse findings'

They'll now proceed to con their way into proving Conor's test wasn't actually positive it's all a big mistake and poor Conor is actually a victim. Just like his mate Dillian who obviously never took any Dianabol.. :bag:

again, though, it's like they read 'Drug Test failures excuses for Dummies' and trolled out every bad cliche from it, to me this stuff makes them more and not less guilty in the eyes of anyone who isn't criminally stupid.

he's saying he's 'never witnessed a failed drugs test'

what he isn't saying is 'I have never seen a fighter take PED's, or been involved in the administration of PED's, or known of or worked with a fighter who is on PED's, every fighter in my camp has always been and will always be clean'

that is what he (it seems to me) was very careful NOT to say.
Emphatically this. Tut tut Sims.

Eubank himself seems to be shaking his head more at the fact Benn got caught, not that he was doping. which gives the game away to me

Those defending Bellew need to have a word with themselves. He’s shamelessly refusing to condemn a fighter being caught cheating so as to be loyal to his paymaster.

Didn’t he earn enough money from fighting the ghost of David Haye to be able to demonstrate some integrity when it’s called for even if it means losing his job.

‘Innocent until proven guilty’ – Dean Whyte says Chris Eubank Jr vs Conor Benn should have gone ahead despite Benn’s positive drugs test

Most people believe it was the right decision to call off the Chris Eubank Jr vs Conor Benn fight, but there are a few who disagree.

It was revealed earlier this week that Benn had tested positive for the banned substance, clomifene, and his fight with Eubank Jr was subsequently called off.

Immediately after the news came out that Benn had failed a drugs test the BBBoC (British Boxing Board of Control) ruled that the fight was ‘prohibited’.

The events promoters attempted to battle the ruling, but they were unsuccessful.

With that being said, in Matchroom Boxing and Wasserman Boxing’s joint statement they said that the BBBoC had acted ‘without due process’ which remained a ‘legal issue’.

talkSPORT’s Simon Jordan, however, thinks that the BBBoC did the right thing, as he said, “They’ve done their job, they could have wilted, they could have backed down they could have looked at the economics of who has the biggest pockets and how this legal thing is going to play out, but they stood their ground.

“Now, I’m not suggesting they are perfect, but they stood their ground.”


Meanwhile, Dean Whyte is one of the few who thinks the event should have gone ahead despite the failed drugs test.

“It’s a shame that it’s come undone,” Whyte told Boxing Social.

“I think the guy should be innocent until proven guilty and they should be given the benefit of the doubt and the fight should have gone ahead.

“Some people talk about the interests of the sport, listen, these guys are fighting guys who are probably on drugs and they didn’t know, so hey listen, I don’t know.

“It is tricky because you want clean athletes, I get it, but at the same time, we don’t want to do this to guys without being proven guilty, the evidence needs to be there.

“Right now he’s being proven guilty before they’ve even heard the case, so it’s one of them.”

Since when did you get benefit of the doubt for failing a PED test? :lol:

Remember when Rio got banned for year when he played for Utd and he didn’t even fail a test, just missed one?
