Conor Benn is reportedly being investigated over claims he failed another drugs test earlier this year after his fight against Chris Eubank Jr was postponed.

The British boxer tested positive for the banned substance clomifene before the blockbuster fight, which was due to take at the O2 Arena last Saturday.

And now the Daily Mail has revealed claims from inside the world of boxing that Benn failed a separate test for the same substance earlier this year.

“A few of us have known about this earlier test for some time,” Top Rank promoter Frank Warren said. “That makes it even more of a scandal. More damaging to our sport than everyone thought.”

Another source, when pressed to confirm the undisclosed positive test, told The Mail on condition of anonymity: “Yes. Earlier this year. Same stuff.”

Benn, 26, is already facing the prospect of a four-year ban from the ring after the British Boxing Board of Control launched an investigation into the confirmed positive test.

The BBBofC refused to sanction the fight against Eubank Jr after news of the failed test was leaked to the media, although the result was known within boxing for weeks.

Further allegations of failed drugs tests being kept secret also raise questions over the British boxing authorities’ ability to test effectively.

Clomifene was originally created as a fertility aid for women, but when used by men is a powerful testosterone booster.

Benn’s promoter Eddie Hearn claimed the boxer was not given ‘due process’ after passing UKAD’s compulsory testing regime but failing the voluntary scheme run by VADA.

Benn himself continues to insist he is a clean fighter and recently vowed to get to the bottom of his failed drugs test.
