Dillian Whyte Update: WBC Statement
Following on from the news that Dillian Whyte has reportedly failed a drug test just days before his fight with Oscar Rivas on Saturday night, the WBC have today released the following statement:
“At of the time of the publication of this Release, the WBC has not received any notification from anyone about a positive anti-doping test allegedly yielded by Dillian Whyte in connection with last Saturday’s fight against Oscar Rivas for the WBC Interim heavyweight championship.
The WBC has requested that the BBBofC, as the local, governing entity that oversaw that fight, formally provide any available information to the WBC.
The fight’s promoters contracted the Voluntary Anti-Doping Association (VADA) to perform pre-fight and after-the-fight anti-doping tests on both fighters. The WBC is not aware that any of the test’s results VADA has received up to now have yielded any adverse findings. The WBC created the Clean Boxing Program which is administered by VADA, and which is a top priority of our organization.
The WBC will not make any comments about the situation at hand until it receives the proper, formal communication from the BBBofC.”
