The WBA Continental welterweight title holder, Conor Benn, is not only known for his pugilistic skill set but also for his eccentric personality. He was recently scheduled to fight the two-division world champion, Chris Eubank Jr. However, the fight did not materialize as Benn failed a drug test by the Voluntary Anti-Doping Association (VADA). Meanwhile, there is one thing that the son of former world champion Nigel Benn absolutely loves, creating a bit of commotion. In fact, he recently did the same by calling out the Michigan-based multinational pizza giant, Domino’s Pizza, for their tweet about his anti-doping test.

Dominos recently shared a picture of a rather absurd-looking pizza, which was topped with boiled eggs. Moreover, they even went to name the pizza The Conor Benn Special. Notably, Benn was cleared of doping allegations.

And the results were attributed to the high consumption of eggs. Addressing the ruling, the governing body said, “Mr. Benn’s documented and highly-elevated consumption of eggs during the times relevant to the sample collection. Raised a reasonable explanation for the Adverse Finding.”
