Chris Eubank Jr vs Conor Benn is CALLED OFF after ‘The Destroyer’ failed a drugs tests
Despite neither fighter having a British license at the time, heavyweights David Haye and Derek Chisora were able to share the squared circle at West Ham’s former home, Upton Park, in 2012.
The epic grudge match, which saw Haye claim a decisive fifth-round stoppage victory, came almost exactly a year after their stunning brawl at the post-fight press conference following Haymaker’s defeat to Wladimir Klitschko.
‘I wanted to say this personally,’ says Benn. You’ve read what the Daily Mail published about me today, and I’d rather you hear it directly from me than read it in a statement from me and my team.
‘I haven’t committed any violations, and I haven’t been suspended, so the fight is still on,’ he says.
‘I spoke with Chris personally, and we both want the fight to take place.’ We’ve both sought medical and legal advice, and we both want the fight to take place for the sake of the fans.
‘I’ve signed up for every voluntary anti-doping test under the sun, and all of my UK tests have come back negative throughout my career.’ I’ve never had any.
