    Benson is such a leech. He doesn't even have the decency to credit the reporter who broke the story, Riath al-Samarrai.

    Credit to Riath - and of course to UKAD for standing their ground. Nobody should be able to bully the authorities as Benn and his team have tried to do.

    Could Eddie Hearn have handled this any worse ? :)

    Will any of the usual mouthpieces bother to ask him about it?

    Not just Eddie, big Nige put his boy on the Piers Morgan's show for some strange reason.

    Proud of the BBBoC putting the 2 silver spoon runts in their place.

    Does anyone think that if Hearn and Benn could go back to when it was first announced that Benn had failed the test that right there and then they just held their hands up and said we made a mistake Conor deeply regrets taking PEDS. Or do you think if they had the chance they would play the innocent card all over again? Everyone knows he was juicing anyway.

    Hard to imagine how Hearn and Benn could have handled this worse because they are now effectively back where they started and have gained nothing in the process.

    This provisional suspension on Benn will be enforced until a suspension with a duration to it is applied. We may never be informed what that duration is but zero tolerance will ensure he gets one and we don't see the cheating little pr_ck in a ring for the foreseeable future.

    Who wants to see him anyway?

    He's crap, never even won so much as an area title, let alone the British , he is clearly trading on a faded name, and anyway, the world has moved on, Ben Whittaker is now the new "next best thing"

    Couldn't have happened to a nicer bloke

    Remember a few months back when Benn sat down with Simon Jordan and had him convinced that he would be cleared and the evidence would be revealed in the next week or two. Why has Simon Jordan gone quiet? He was played by the lying Hearn protégée yet keeps quiet.

    Benn and Hearn's spin at a time when they knew the BBofC's protocol didn't allow them to respond was just plain devious and it succeeded in conning a few..
