Unlike many boxers and pros, Chris Eubank Sr is taking a sympathetic approach to the doping situation Conor Benn finds himself in.
Earlier this month, Benn will face Chris Eubank Jr in one of the most exciting and exciting competitions of the year. The rug was pulled under the event when it was reported that the young weightlifter had been found to have banned substances in his system.
Speak privately with TalkSPORTEubank Sr said he was praying that Conor, the son of his battle rival Nigel, be cleared of his name.
“We are fighters, and the public can’t see what we see… When I look at Conor, I don’t look at a man – because when I look at people, I’m reading them, we are. As fighters, we read People. What kind of person is this person? He is an honest man. “
“I believe he has the ability to clean the world in his weight [class]. He has his father’s DNA for that ability, and he has the brains of a reasonable man. He is a very well-spoken young man. I didn’t hear him use bad language, I mean okay, weird [word] but that’s what the world does today. “
“I feel like he doesn’t know what happened. Because a boxer doesn’t know cheats and cheats. So he trusts and thinks that the person doing the help, whatever it is, whether it’s juice or pricking someone’s knuckles – as I’ve seen, I wouldn’t mention any name – he won’t have any idea. “
“I pray for Conor. Because it can’t be him. You have to deceive in your mind. Real boxers don’t lie. He is real – so he can never manage anything fraudulent for himself. It will be someone else he trusts. “
After a week of breaking news and more information, things have calmed down for Benn’s team. It’s been assumed that legal controversy is the cause, and we can still expect the promise to take many by surprise, according to advertiser Eddie Hearn.
Until then, and unfortunately for Benn, the father of his potential rival remains one of the better-informed when it comes to drugs, with so many fans and warriors labeled him the worst.
