    It has changed a lot. 20 - 30 years ago boxers were willing to take a chance and at the same time risk losing a fight. That is no longer the case. Many of the elite boxers today run their own business.

    My take for what it’s worth.

    If you’re on steroids then you know there’s a risk of getting caught. If you do get caught then your previous behaviour will determine how much hammer you get, rightly or wrongly.

    Benn has acted like an absolute tool his whole career so he must have known he’d get absolutely slaughtered if it got out. Or someone close to him will have known this as Benn doesn’t have much self awareness.

    Say a Luke Campbell (nice guy, likeable) got caught, people would say ahh that’s a shame but forget about it after a week.

    If you act like Benn has, before and after, then you must know the risk of this getting out is going to turn you into a meme for the rest of your career.

    Play silly games, win silly prizes.

    I believe the official line is "we aren't allowed to talk about it but everyone is going to be shocked by whats in this document Koogs" or some other gem like this

    Suprise suprise, Conor acting like a total weapon again. Desperately looking to find a retired name he can make some money fighting. Straight out the new generation YouTube boxer playbook, shove someone ringside and cause 'beef'

    I haven't commented after the fracas at the Taylor fight, but ****ing hell, what an absloute ****ing bellwhiff he is.

    Unreal lack of self awareness from Benn. How has no one around him not tugged him and told him to stop acting the ****?

    I can tell you why this is. It is because that whole camp / set up / Essex lot are complete morons. They don’t have a brain between them. The way they have handled this whole situation has been disgusting. Thinking they were above everyone and everything. He really deserves a life ban just for showing how much of a tool he is.

    His team are just as clueless. His manager was on TOWIE, a programme bottom of the proverbial barrel when it comes to self-awareness.

    You've got a fighter who has failed 2 a samples and at least 1 b sample talking about deathwishes for fighters wanting to fight him. How clueless can you be? Absolutely shocking lack of self awareness considering the situation he is in.

    Benn thinks that this will be over by the end of June with UKAD issuing their verdict.

    I wonder how the conversation is developing- I can't see how he gets away with another other than a long ban

    There's nothing calculated about it, no character he is playing. There's enough evidence now that he's clearly just a horrid, snide individual with nothing redeeming about his character. How did big Nige manage to raise such an unpleasant kid, there must have been some bad influences growing up.

    If Eddie manages to turn him into someone the public likes and respects then it will be the greatest trick he's ever pulled.

    Does Eddie seriously think that anyone is interested in seeing Conor fight an over the hill retired fighter??

    This little fake beef set-up was never going to work.

    Let the drugs cheat serve a ban then come back and call out someone who is his own age and weight.

    Read people "it's clever he's now playing the villan"

    No lads. He was previously playing a nice girl, now he's just reverted to default. A ****.
