Conor Benn wins on points over Rodolfo Orozco in his first fight since his suspension.

After failing two voluntary drug tests later that year, Englishman Benn, 26, had not fought since April 2022.

Benn won the 10-round fight by scores of 99-91, 99-91, and 96-94.

“I required the rounds. “I’ve been through hell and back,” Benn remarked after the fight.

“Because Britain is my home, it’s only right that I fight back sooner rather than later.”

Benn was fighting for the first time in 525 days, and he is currently undefeated in 22 fights.

In the run-up to his bout with Chris Eubank Jr last October, Benn failed two Voluntary Anti-Doping Association (Vada) tests, testing positive for the female reproductive medication clomifene.

He maintains that he is not doping on purpose.

UK Anti-Doping (Ukad) suspended him in March, but following a hearing, the National Anti-Doping Panel overturned his suspension in July.

Ukad and the British Boxing Board of Control (BBBofC) are appealing the ruling, and Benn presently does not have a boxing licence in the UK.

Benn and Eubank Jr were set to battle 30 years after their dads, Nigel Benn and Chris Eubank Sr, fought.
