    I wouldn't mind a bit of bias but they just have zero objectivity.

    The final straw was when one of them started referring to Benn as ‘Con’

    Both Jordan Thompson and Richardson Hitchins posted on their Instagram story of themselves being VADA tested during their camp. Important for keeping the sport as safe as possible.

    Is that why you’re buzzing over Benn v Eubank?

    Didn't have the power to pull the fight lol

    The board eventually made the decision to not sanction the fight. They could have made that decision weeks prior

    There’s an easy solution to make sure the board don’t have to pull a fight because of a failed drug test…

    Matchroom are good for testing tbf but its badly negated by the fact they ignore and cover up results for their star fighters.

    I see Amir Khan persists he didn't take anything despite his failed test... "I requested the testing in the first place" etc. He reckons he got it from drinking someone else's drink.

    Under strict liability that's his fault; he's not denying the failed test, just denying that it was deliberate. Sadly in most sports, it makes no difference.

    Are you implying all athletes need to say it wasn't intentional and its ok?

    The opposite. You can't have someone else's drink (if that actually happened) and use it as an excuse.
