“It’s Not Good Enough”, Simon Jordan Slams UNFAIR Treatment Of Conor Benn In Doping Case

  • Conor Benn Failed Doping Tests Last Year For Clomiphene
  • He Was Cleared To Box In July But An Appeal Is Ongoing
  • The British Star Is Close To A Mega Fight With Chris Eubank Jr

More than twelve months on and Conor Benn still has a final hurdle to overcome in his doping case.

The British superstar, who failed two tests for the banned substance Clomiphene in 2022, has long persisted in his innocence.

Benn received a favourable ruling in a WBC investigation earlier this year regarding his failed test under their jurisdiction, which led to him being reinstated into the welterweight rankings.

And five months later, the National Anti-Doping Panel (NADP) followed after a hearing where Benn won his case, ending his provisional suspension with UK Anti-Doping (UKAD).

The British Boxing Board Of Control and UKAD, however, insist that an appeal is still ongoing despite it having made little advance in more than three months.

Benn returned to the ring in September outpointing Mexico’s Rodolfo Orozco – who also failed a doping test.

Now his sights are set on a dream matchup with Chris Eubank Jr, which according to MailSport is on the verge of being finalised for Feb 3 at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, Live on DAZN PPV.

Simon Jordan On The Drawn Out Appeal Process In The Conor Benn Case

TalkSPORT’s Simon Jordan is one person who is baffled at the time it is taking for UKAD/BBBofC’s appeal to be heard.

“There was an appeal launched by the BBBofC, well it’s not good enough. Why isn’t the appeal being brought forward? Why aren’t they doing it quicker?”

Jordan even went on to say that the lengthy time the process is taking is unfair to Benn and his career.

“It’s not fair on Conor Benn that he should have to wait around forever…Why it’s taking two or three months is unfair on Conor Benn”
