Boxing News at Five: Sulaiman says the WBC have not suspended Whyte, Spong lets his cougar run amok

The WBC have suspended his interim and mandatory status rather than Dillian Whyte, and Tyrone Spong can't control his cougar

THE only thing we know about Dillian Whyte’s “adverse finding” on a UKAD (UK Anti-Doping) drug test before a July 20 fight against Oscar Rivas, is that nobody really knows anything, let alone what’s going to happen next.

Whyte, the fighter in question, claimed said he beat Rivas “fair and square” and that everything said about him in the last four weeks has been “rubbish”, while the show’s promoter, Eddie Hearn, has asked for it all to “play out” and believes Whyte needs time to “prove his innocence”.

Rivas’ team are up in arms, of course. They want to know why they weren’t informed about the hearing Whyte had on the day of the fight. They want to know why he was then cleared to fight.
