Chris Eubank Jr vs Conor Benn net worth combined: Career earnings compared after super-fight called off | The Sun

CHRIS EUBANK JR vs Conor Benn has been called off which means both fighters miss out on the estimated £7million purse.

Benn failed a drug test after trace amounts of banned substance clomifene were found in a test conducted by the Voluntary Anti-Doping Association [VADA].

Matchroom remained hopeful the fight would go ahead, claiming a second test conducted by the UK Anti-Doping Agency returned a negative result.

But the British Boxing Board of Control has stepped in and ruled the scrap is 'prohibited" despite BOTH fighters wanting to continue with the bout and Eddie Hearn appealing the decision.

A BBBoC statement read: "On the evening of 4th October 2022, the Board of the British Boxing Board of Control Limited resolved that the contest between Chris Eubank Jnr. and Conor Benn scheduled to take place on 8th October 2022 is prohibited as it is not in the interests of Boxing."

Eubank Jr, a middleweight who has also campaigned at 168lbs, was set to drop to his lowest weight ever at 157lbs to challenge Benn – a career welterweight.

Benn boasts a 21-0 record but has struggled to find a significant challenger at welterweight, while Eubank Jr has held multiple championships at middleweight and super-middleweight.

Unsurprisingly the 33-year-old boasts a much higher net worth, mostly thanks to his 32-2 professional record.

Here is how the two Brits match up financially ahead of what was supposed to be a big showdown.
