Conor Benn submits “a 270-page document to the WBC to clear his name” after testing positive.
Conor Benn ‘files 270-page document with WBC to clear his name’ after his positive drug test halted his fight against Chris Eubank Jr – after the Brit claimed his team had ‘proved his innocence’.
Conor Benn’s legal team has submitted a 270-page document to the World Boxing Council to prove his innocence after his much-anticipated fight with Chris Eubank Jr was canceled due to two failed drug tests.
The 26-year-old failed two tests by the WBC and the Boxing Board of Control after both tests showed evidence of the banned substance clomiphene.
Sportsmail’s Riath Al-Samarrai first broke the story of Benn’s failed test on October 6, and Benn took to social media in early December to break his silence on the ongoing investigation into his positive tests.

The fight with Eubank was called off before the welterweight surrendered his license to the British Boxing Board of Control, which is conducting a separate inquiry into the positive tests from the WBC.
WBC President Mauricio Sulaiman told the Telegraph: “We have the document which is 270 pages long. We only received it a few days ago and it will take some time to complete our investigation, but we’ll address it as we speak.

“We have a special committee with experts from different fields who will go through it and do the full investigation.”
“I won’t go into detail. The WBC has a full committee that is reviewing and addressing this particular issue and we want this to be resolved as soon as possible.
“I was expecting it to be ready by the end of December, but it’s 270 pages and there are a lot of different things that need to be addressed, so I don’t know how long it will take.”
“But let me be clear, this matter is strictly WBC business, it has nothing to do with the Boxing Board [investigation] and UKAD.
“I don’t know if he’s suspended or not, it’s just where the boxer stands on the WBC test and if he’s listed with us. We make our own protocol exclusively for the WBC.’
