In the latest development regarding Conor Benn's failed drug test in the lead-up to his bout with Chris Eubank Jr, the British Boxing Board of Control (BBBofC) have released a statement prohibiting the bout from taking place under their governing body.
Reports emerged this morning regarding an adverse finding of clomifene in a VADA drugs test. Since then, both Matchroom and Wasserman confirmed that both fighters wish to proceed with the bout going ahead, as Benn's B sample is yet to be tested meaning he is still not in violation of the rules and is free to fight.
However, the latest development in the situation is that the BBBofC has released a statement where they confirm that the bout is prohibited as it is not in the interests of boxing.
This does not necessarily mean that the fight is definitely off, it has been seen in the past where a different governing board can put the fight on, as seen in 2012 when the Luxembourg Boxing Board sanctioned the bout between David Haye and Derek Chisora at Upton Park.
