Dillian Whyte's mandatory challenger status SUSPENDED by WBC

Following news that Dillian Whyte failed a drug test prior to his victory over Oscar Rivas on 20 July, the World Boxing Council (WBC) has suspended Whyte's status as mandatory challenger to Deontay Wilder's WBC title.

By Dean Goulding   - @deangoulding

On 22 July, Boxing Scene's Thomas Hauser reported that Dililan Whyte had failed a drug test prior to his unanimous decision victory over previously unbeaten Colombian boxer Oscar Rivas, allegedly testing positive for "at least one or more" banned substances.

Since then, many have speculated as to how this scandal, if true, will affect Whyte's career and his hard-earned status as mandatory challenger to Deontay Wilder's WBC heavyweight championship belt. Speculation will no doubt continue, but for now the WBC have released a statement confirming that due to the ongoing situation, they have provisionally suspended Whyte's status as mandatory challenger.

Read the WBC's statement in full below:

"An "A" Sample UKAD collected from Mr. Dillian Whyte in relation with his bout against Oscar Rivas yielded an adverse finding. In light of that adverse finding, and pending the outcome of the WBC's own investigation and adjudicatory process, the WBC is provisionally suspending the WBC's recognition of Dillian Whyte as WBC interim World Heavyweight Champion and Mandatory Challenger of the division.

The WBC has notified Mr. Whyte and his team of the WBC's suspension, and that it will afford Mr. Whyte the opportunity to present its position to the WBC at an investigative hearing which will take place at a place and time to be announced in the near future. Throughout its investigation and hearing, the WBC will afford Mr. Whyte and his team the opportunity to present any available information and materials, and any exculpatory evidence they might deem appropriate."

The next step in this drawn out saga will be for UKAD to test Whyte's "B" sample, which could drag on for weeks or even months. If Whyte's "B" sample were to test positive as well, Whyte could serve a lengthy ban when the National Anti-Doping Panel ultimately gives its final verdict.
