Conor Benn Commits to VADA Testing Despite Contamination Claims

British welterweight Conor Benn has decided to undergo VADA drug testing ahead of his Las Vegas fight on February 3, aiming to demonstrate his commitment to a clean record. This move comes after Benn faced two adverse findings in October 2022, preventing him from fighting in the UK.

The British Boxing Board of Control’s refusal to grant a license led to the cancellation of a bout with Chris Eubank Jr. on English soil. Benn’s return to the US for his upcoming fight against Peter Dobson prompted him to rejoin the VADA testing program.

VADA publicly welcomed Benn and Dobson to their program, acknowledging their participation in preparation for the February 3, 2024 bout in Las Vegas.

Despite Benn’s claim that contamination caused the previous positive results, some skepticism arose regarding the effectiveness of the testing process. Critics questioned its impact, expressing doubts such as, “What’s the point cos they just ignore it [if they test positive].”

Benn’s decision to adhere to the testing protocol is viewed as a significant step in rebuilding his reputation. The lead-up to the Benn vs. Dobson fight is expected to draw attention, with Benn likely sharing images of the testing process initiated by VADA. However, the debate continues whether this will be enough to dispel lingering concerns about the unexplained previous findings, as believed by the British Boxing Board of Control.
