    I see he’s gone for the Benn line of defence through attack…

    “Again, these are people that are trying to attack me for whatever reason but no weapon against me shall prosper. I’ve never taken a steroid in my — I don’t even know where to get steroids at the end of the day. I barely take supplements.”

    You've missed the classic "Why would I cheat when I've signed up to a testing program" as well

    Ban all people failing drugs tests for life.

    It is the only way.

    Alycia Bum is claiming she's cleared and she has all her belts. Such a pathetic woman.

    The purses should not be distributed until testing comes back, if you **** dirty it's withheld

    The amount of fans that gave Garcia a pass for deliberately missing weight was ridiculous. Considering how fresh Garcia was at the end of this fight sure does make sense now.

    I did think that, in retrospect it looks quite obvious

    It’s comical seeing the reaction from fans online when a fighter who they dislike tests positive (e.g. Benn, Whyte) but when a fighter who is popular tests positive like Garcia it has to be stitch up. So many fans on the general section hate Haney so much that they refuse to accept this now.

    Completely different energy from Eddie Hearn regarding this drug test

    When it was Conor Bent - He's had an adverse finding
    When it was Ryan Garcia - He has had performance enhancing drugs in his system.

    I get it. Garcia isnt his fighter but Eddie trying to make out he's being neutral in this scenario is laughable.

    The Haney hate is crazy. 99% lomo fans who still can't get over the Haney defeat. The way Garcia missing weight by over 3lbs was just accepted as ok was a joke. Haney deserved credit for saving the show.

    I honestly wouldn't put it past Conor Benn to start attacking Garcia for failing a drug test.
