Conor Benn has taken to social media to send a rather undiplomatic response message to those who questioned him over his two failed VADA tests last year.
The WBC released a statement yesterday that where they ruled that there was “no conclusive evidence” that Benn had intentionally taken the banned substance Clomid, and thus approved his return to their rankings.
And Benn shared a post of himself giving the middle finger on his official Instagram account, with the caption:
“No lies told.”
The governing body revealed they had accepted Benn’s reasoning of “overconsumption of eggs” as being a plausible explaination for the traces of the substance in his system.
The 25 year old failed two tests last year over the space of three months, causing his blockbuster clash with Chris Eubank Jr to be cancelled just days out from fight night.
It now appears that Benn will look to resume his career this spring, having not boxed since his two round destruction of Chris Van Heerden in April of last year.
Filipino legend Manny Pacquaio appears to be the frontrunner for ‘The Destroyer’s comeback bout, with promoter Eddie Hearn admitting talks were underway with the 44 year old’s team. The likes of Kell Brook and Adrien Broner have also been named as potential fights.
Whoever it may be against, Benn’s return to the ring is likely to take place on foreign soil, as he currently does not have a British Boxing Board of Control license.
The board released a statement yesterday in response to the WBC ruling, where they stated that the governing body’s decision on Benn’s case would have no bearing on their own investigation.
