New evidence has come to light that Conor Benn failed a second drugs test earlier this year, prior to the positive finding which ultimately led to his huge pay-per-view fight with Chris Eubank Jr last weekend being cancelled.

Benn could be in big trouble. ‘The Destroyer’ could face a four year ban at the very least, which would see his career put on standstill until Benn is in his 30’s.

Benn Faces Second Second Drugs Test Failure

Conor Benn is being investigated over claims he failed a drugs test prior to the one which forced the 11th-hour cancellation of last Saturday’s enormous grudge match with Chris Eubank Jr.

Boxing fans were super excited to see the Eubank vs Benn rivalry renewed almost 30 years after the last fight between Chris Sr and Nigel. However, due to Benn testing positive for the banned substance clomifene.

It appears that Benn may have failed a second drugs test prior to the one that came to light last week. Benn has supposedly previously tested positive for the exact same drug, which makes a lengthy ban inevitable for ‘The Destroyer’.

For one single violation the standard sentence is a four-year ban. However, with this coming to light that Benn has failed two performance enhancing drugs tests, he could face a ban well into his thirties.

A highly reputable source in world boxing, who wishes to stay anonymous, insists that these supposed undisclosed findings from earlier this year or at the end of 2021 are 100% true. The anonymous source said, “Yes. Earlier this year. Same stuff.”

The substance that Benn popped for, clomifene, was originally created as a fertility aid for women. However, once it was clear that it boosted testosterone and masked other drugs in men, it was banned in all mainstream sports. This includes the likes of athletics, cycling and of course boxing.

Benn insists he is a “clean athlete” and is trying to clear his name to prove his innocence. Benn’s trainer, Tony Sims, has stated that he is “absolutely certain” that his fight is pure and clean. However, these latest findings could make a mockery of all of these protests from Team Benn, with this potential bombshell putting a huge dent in the career of Conor Benn.
