In a recent interview, Robert Smith, the General Secretary of the British Boxing Board of Control (BBBofC), provided crucial updates on the much-anticipated fight between Conor Benn and Chris Eubank Jr., slated for February 3rd. The bout’s future hangs in balance following Benn’s failed drug tests.

Robert Smith stated, “The board feel any athlete who has failed a drug test needs to go through an investigation with the proper authorities, and that hasn’t happened.” He emphasized that delays were not caused by the BBBofC or UKAD, but by “other parties.”
