Nigel Benn flies home to Australia believing son Conor will WIN doping fight as he slams traitors in ‘witch hunt’

, Nigel Benn flies home to Australia believing son Conor will WIN doping fight as he slams traitors in ‘witch hunt’

NIGEL BENN has flown home to Australia believing son Conor is about to win his doping fight — but not before settling a few scores.

The British boxing legend returned to the UK in August to help his 26-year-old boy finish the family feud against Chris Eubank Jr and his father on October 8.

Conor Benn has insisted he will be found innocent over doping charges

But the catchweight bout was cancelled by the British Boxing Board of Control two days out after it was revealed Conor had failed a Voluntary Anti-Doping Association test for female fertility drug clomifene.

Undefeated welterweight Conor passionately insists he is innocent — and SunSport understands the World Boxing Council are close to clearing him following their investigation.

But the Benn name could be forever tarnished by the saga and the Dark Destroyer has been hurt by a string of industry insiders turning on his heir without having all of the facts.

The 58-year-old told SunSport: “I can finally fly home now, put my head on the pillow and sleep soundly, knowing that my son is going to have his name cleared.

“The strain this whole thing has put on the health of my family was devastating, we have all suffered. It has been like a witch-hunt out of the 1800s.

“So many people we considered friends have turned on my son, labelled him guilty and tried to throw away the key.

“We have had to sit in silence while people bad-mouth us. But that’s about to change and I want all the apologies to be just as loud as the criticisms.”

SunSport is privy to the facts of the case that seem set to clear Benn of any wrongdoing.

But, after three months of rumours and speculation, the damage among the boxing public might already be done.

Conor is also at war with the BBBofC for their handling of the situation, only intervening long after they were made aware and despite the fighter passing all of his UK Anti-Doping tests.

Two-weight world champ Nigel can cope with sceptic fans who do not have the scientific data but not those in the boxing community who condemned his son without speaking to them first.

He said: “The science is going to prove that Conor is innocent.

“People could have waited to hear it all and reserved judgment. But instead they attacked him and put us through hell.

“Everyone that got on that bandwagon won’t be able to get off and switch sides.”

Punching Techniques

There are seven kinds of punches: Left Hook, Right Hook, Uppercut, Cross, Straight, Overhand and Underhand. Each punch is different. Some punches require more strength than others.

There are also various punching combinations. These are combinations made up of several punches that can be used together to achieve one goal. A combination can contain multiple parts. For example, a left hook followed by a right cross will cause damage to the opponent’s jaw.

A boxer must use his legs to defend against kicks. He raises his leg when he is hit with a kick and then moves away from the opponent. To avoid being kicked on the sides, he bends at his knees when the attacker strikes from the front. But if the attack comes in the back, he will stand straight and block the kick using his foot.

Elbows

Elbow strikes are very effective because they inflict much pain. An elbow strike can be delivered directly or indirectly. Directly means you hit your opponent directly with your forearm. While indirectly, it means you hit him with another section of your arm.

Hands

Boxers use their hands as a shield against incoming punches. To do this, they raise their fists higher than their heads and move their arms in the direction that the attack is coming. Then they make contact with the attacker’s fist.

Knees

To absorb the impact of a punch to the stomach, abdomen, or chest, boxers should bend their knees. For defense purposes, knee strikes are common.

Feet
