    Would go down as one of their better statements to be fair

    Confidentiality. However as per usual with the Benn case leaks appear.

    Has Hearn still not commented?

    Thought he'd at least do an interview with loads of lies and suggestions then avoid answering any direct questions using the old confidentiality card

    That's why it points at the leak is true as if it was the other way he would have done about 10 IFL interviews about it by now

    I know that Matchroom has invested a lot of money in building Conor Benn's career, but they should get rid of him.

    Rumour is that it will be announced he takes a 2 year backdated ban and fights before the end of the year

    Matchroom is not going to let go of Conor Benn until they get their investment back.

    I don't think Eddie Hearn's ego will be able to withstand it either :)

    They are going to be waiting a while.

    If they hadn't run interference in the process for the past 2 years, Benn could be fighting Eubank now, having served a 2 year ban. Instead they have snuck off and fought 2 no-names in the US for next to nothing, helped Benn destroy his name and NOW face a 2 year ban.

    Any ban should start from the date of his last fight. Serve him right for the spin of the past 2 years.

    How can it be backdated when (presumably) other commissions would have denied him the licence to fight?

    That is true, as you can't backdate a ban if he has fought.

    How funny would that be if that happened

    I mean if you took this to the conclusion that he shouldn't have been fighting, his last two bouts could be declared no-contests in hindsight. No idea what that would do to the fees and so on (probably nothing) but it's a can of worms.

    Absolutely, but I can't help fearing there'll be a 'compronise' backdating it to the original date and they'll overlook the overseas contest in pursuit of an easy life
