The World Boxing Council, in their investigation, did not find conclusive evidence that the welterweight boxer Conor Benn (21-0, 14 KOs) deliberately took clomiphene banned by the World Anti-Doping Agency, so now he will be returned to the rating.
Note that the boxer’s team team handed over a 270 page report to the WBC to clear his name. Benn suggested that the banned substance may have entered his body due to the large number of eggs he ate during training camp in preparation for the fight with Eubank Jr. According to him, this is 30-34 eggs per week.
The WBC made the following points in its report:
1. There was no conclusive evidence that Mr. Benn intentionally or knowingly took clomiphene.
2. There were no failures in the procedures associated with the collection and analysis of samples, or violation of Mr. Benn’s rights in the collection of Sample B, which would justify the doubt or could lead to the invalidation of the adverse finding.
3. Mr. Benn’s documented excessive consumption of eggs at the time the doping test was taken provided a reasonable explanation for the adverse outcome.
“The WBC Nutrition Committee will work with Mr. Benn’s team to develop a nutritional program designed to avoid the risk of adverse future outcomes caused by nutritional factors. Mr. Benn will undergo regular anti-doping testing to monitor the impact of the WBC-mandated nutrition program,” the organization said in a statement.
