IT’S all gone very quiet on the Dillian Whyte front but that might not necessarily be a bad thing.

As fans still wait for answers and solicitors’ letters get tossed around like confetti, all should be revealed in due course, we are told – one way or another. In fact, Eddie Hearn, Whyte’s promoter, isn’t just hopeful of his man being cleared of any wrongdoing but fully expects him to be appearing in a British ring before the year is out.

If true, it would mark quite the turnaround for a heavyweight whose post-fight celebration after beating Oscar Rivas on July 20 has been muted to say the least.
