FORMER world heavyweight champion David Haye has criticised people “jumping on the bandwagon” by condemning Dillian Whyte before any possible failed drugs test is officially confirmed.

Whyte has been provisionally suspended by the World Boxing Council pending an investigation into an adverse finding in a test prior to his recent bout against Oscar Rivas.

The Londoner was cleared to fight by UK Anti-Doping and the British Boxing Board of Control and went on to win the WBC’s interim title and the right to challenge champion Deontay Wilder after his unanimous decision win.
