The UK Anti-Doping has cleared British heavyweight Dillian Whyte.
UKAD has determined that nothing from his test indicates that he had used steroids. They said that adverse findings were indicatiive of contamination.
So good news for Whyte (26-1, 18 KOs), who is fighting Mariusz Wach (35-5, 19 KOs) tonight at the Diriyah Arena, in Diriyah, Saudi Arabia. The two will be fighting on the undercard of Anthony Joshua vs. Andy Ruiz Jr. on DAZN and Sky Sports Box Office.

“In respect of Mr Whyte’s drug testing results, the following points are relevant:
• There is nothing in Mr Whyte’s longitudinal urinary profile to suggest that he has used steroids.
• The levels of the metabolites found in Mr Whyte’s 20 June 2019 sample were extremely low.
• Mr Whyte had provided a urine sample to VADA on 17 June 2019, i.e. 3 days before his 20 June 2019 sample, which was tested by a WADA-accredited laboratory and which returned a negative result, including for the metabolites in question.
• Mr Whyte provided several other doping control samples to UKAD and VADA between 20 June and 20 July 2019 (i.e. the date of his fight with Oscar Rivas) – all of which also tested negative.
• In light of the above points, the trace amounts of metabolites found in the 20 June 2019 sample are consistent with an isolated contamination event, and they are not suggestive of doping.”
