Eddie Hearn told talkSPORT on Wednesday that Conor Benn will address the media regarding the adverse finding which scuppered his fight with Chris Eubank Jnr earlier this month.

Trace amounts of the fertility drug clomifene were found in a test administered by the Voluntary Anti-Doping Assocation (VADA) in September.

The drug has been shown to increase testosterone levels in males and can also be used as a masking agent to hide traces of other banned substances.

Aside from a few cryptic Instagram posts, Benn has been silent on the matter as the investigation continues into how the substance entered the fighter’s bloodstream.

UK Anti-Doping (UKAD) and VADA are now in communication to determine a resolution.

If Benn is found to have been in breach of any rules, a maximum ban of four years may be administered by UKAD.

Hearn told Boxing Social on Tuesday that ‘there is suggestion of contamination’ in the results of the test in question. It is not yet clear if Benn has requested for the B sample to be tested.
