Eubank Jr Giving Away Benn Combat Merchandise After Cancellation

Chris Eubank Jr. will be giving away leftover merchandise to fans after his scheduled fight with Conor Benn was cancelled.

The two British boxers were due to meet at the O2 Arena on Saturday October 8 but the fight was called off after it was revealed Benn had returned a positive test for clomiphene, a banned substance, resulting in the British Boxing Board of Control (BBBofC) withdraws its sanctioning of the fight.

The news came just days before the two were due to meet, with the cancellation of the encounter only being confirmed last Thursday after promoters’ efforts to overturn the BBBofC’s decision were unsuccessful. Both fighters had indicated that despite Benn’s positive test, they remained ready to compete.

Tickets for the fight, which would have brought together the sons of former rivals Nigel Benn and Chris Eubank Sr., sold out in less than an hour in August.

To offset the disappointment of the late cancellation, Eubank Jr. announced that he would be giving away merchandise prepared for his fight with Benn.

“We spent a lot of money on merch on Saturday to sell in the arena, but after the fight was canceled and so many people were disappointed, I felt it was right to give it all away personally to the fans,” said the 33- year olds. the year-old said in a statement provided to him pleasemynews.

Eubank Jr. added on Twitter that he would be giving away the merchandise at a central London boxing club on the evening of October 11.

The Boxer tweeted: “I’m doing a merchandise giveaway for fans who missed the weekend. Rathbone Boxing Club 6-8pm. Everyone is welcome, see you there.”

Benn has denied any wrongdoing and insisted he was a “clean athlete”.

The test was conducted by the Voluntary Anti-Doping Association and an investigation is now being overseen by UK Anti-Doping.

If found guilty, Benn, 26, could face a ban of between two and four years.
