In response to a recent article written by Thomas Hauser and published by Boxing News, Matchroom Boxing has clarified that Conor Benn undertook appropriate VADA testing ahead of his recent comeback bout in Florida, complied with all applicable regulations and that all legal procedures were followed. Further, Mr. Hauser’s claim that Benn’s ‘scientific evidence’ had been rejected by UKAD was categorically false.

The article should not have been published without Matchroom Boxing’s position being included. Boxing News therefore apologises to Matchroom Boxing and Conor Benn for the error and any harm caused.
