British welterweight Conor Benn (21-0, 14 KOs), who failed an anti-doping test resulting in a local Boxing Control Board ban against middleweight Chris Eubank Jr. (32-2, 23 KOs), vows to “clear his name “. The fighter claims that neither sleep nor spirit, as clomiphene got into his body.

The fight was supposed to take place on October 8 in London (England) in the contractual weight limit up to 71.2 kg.

“I am terribly upset that we could not fight. I apologize to everyone affected by this postponement,” the statement said. “I am still totally shocked and surprised by all this, and for me those were hard days. The team and I will consider the following options, including rescheduling the fight, but right now I’m focused on clearing my name because I’m a clean athlete!”
