Recently returned heavyweight Jarrell “Big Baby” Miller has labelled Eddie Hearn a “hypocrite” after he tried to continue with the Eubank-Benn fight, despite Conor Benn having been found to have a banned substance in his system.
This comes four years after Hearn cancelled Miller’s world title fight with Anthony Joshua when the American failed a drugs test.
On his YouTube channel, Miller smiled about the Benn situation and explained that he feels his drug test situation was less serious, with him only having a nanogram of a banned substance detected. Miller stated how Hearn has thrown fighters who test positive ‘under the bus’ , but, when it comes to his new ‘golden goose’, believes the promoter is taking a different stance.
“Number one topic all over Instagram right now if, of course, Eddie Hearn and his new golden goose [Conor Benn] failing their drug test.
Now, the ironic part about this whole thing is that, you’re fighting in the U.K., UKAD and VADA was the two different testing companies that they’d been using, he failed during VADA protocol. Now Eddie Hearn is saying that they are not going to recognise VADA, they don’t know what they’re doing, blah blah blah, whatever nonsense he is saying now. He’s basically contradicting himself, saying he wants to uphold UKAD rules because he didn’t do anything wrong with UKAD.
It’s funny that this is the route that he is taking and the stance that he is taking on the situation, because with other fighters, he is throwing them under the bus and especially me, he’s thrown under the bus, it’s crazy.
But Eddie we all know is a hypocrite.”
As for now, Conor Benn remains innocent until proven otherwise, with a full investigation pending which could strike Benn with a four-year ban if he is found guilty.
Despite the investigation, Hearn claims he could reschedule the historic Eubank-Benn fight and ‘put it on tomorrow’ if he pleased.
