Hearn Says He Wants Conor Benn to Return In June, Possibly Apply for F...

Matchroom Boxing’s Eddie Hearn is trying to bring Conor Benn back into the spotlight of the boxing world. In a current interview, the promoter went over the next actions for the embattled welterweight, consisting of the capacity of a fight beyond the United Kingdom in June. After the World Boxing Council concluded its examination into Benn’s 2 stopped working doping tests, the Essex local was renewed into the WBC’s rankings. However, he is still being examined by the British Boxing Board of Control and United Kingdom Anti-Doping, and their choice might impact whether Benn can box in his nation.

Hearn has actually proposed the possibility of a fight in the Middle East, and Benn has actually relinquished his license with the Board in late October. The fighter has actually not battled given that last April, when he destroyed Chris Van Heerden in 2 rounds. The 2 stopped working drug tests both administered by the Voluntary Anti-Doping Association were taken in July and September, and the discovery of the 2nd test caused the cancellation of Benn’s extremely prepared for 157-pound catchweight bout with Chris Eubank Jr.

On Tuesday, Benn provided a declaration in which he voiced his partial annoyance with the WBC’s decision, and Hearn specified that he would choose to have the support of the BBBofC prior to putting advertising strategies into location for Benn. The promoter kept in mind that Benn’s next fight will be viewed by everybody worldwide, no matter whether they like it or not.
