THE MAN TO BEAT NAYOA INOUE?

Rivas responds surprisingly to Whyte's failed test.

Canadian-based Colombian breaks silence.

By Aaron Cooper   - @IntuBoxing

We knew it wouldn't take long. News that WBC World 'Interim' Heavyweight Champion, Dillian Whyte has tested positive for two substances (Currently Unknown) on a test ran by UKAD just three days before heading to the ring at London's O2 Arena last Saturday night is less than 24-hours old. 

Whilst we are still to hear from the Brixton-based heavyweight on the matter. Promoter, Eddie Hearn released the following statement in the aftermath of the news unfolding. He tweeted: "Further to reports I can confirm that both Dillian Whyte and Oscar Rivas were subject to extensive VADA and UKAD testing for their bout. Both fighters were cleared to fight by both bodies and the BBBofC.". Not exactly denying anything is he?

But what about Oscar Rivas?

Performance-enhancing drugs are a cancer in any sport. However, unlike a sport like say, sprinting. Where it will simply help you run faster, which is the name of the game after all. The use of PEDS in boxing to gain a competitive edge is potentially life-threatening to your opponent. The sport lost another soul in the shape of Maxim Dadashev just two short days ago. So for news to break of yet another high-profile boxer failing a drugs test at such a raw time hurts the sport even further. 

Now, if i'm Oscar Rivas, and when the dust settles, and its clear Whyte did use PEDs. Then im going to wrap Eddie Hearn and Dillian Whyte up in so much litigation, that their grandchildren would need lawyers!! Adter all, they sent Whyte into the ring full-well knowing he had failed a test.

However, and I have to say, quite surpringsly. The legal angle is the last thing on the man's mind. 'Kaboom' wants a rematch!

"The only thing to do is wait for what the International Commission of Boxing say because these are things that are really very anti-sporting,"

"I think yes, if they want we will try and fight for the same title. Thanks to God I'll continue unbeaten."

"The truth is this defeat caused me a bit of distress but the support of the people pushes me on, we have to go forward."

The saga continues ...
