    There has been zero evidence provided but there has also been zero rebuttal from Joshua or his team (there's only one video on YouTube where Hearn laughs off the claims). Afterwards his team made a statement insisting that Joshua has never failed a drugs test but again there was no direct response to the TUE allegation. It's also not just Miller who made the claim, Whyte re-iterated it as well, although yes he may just be regurgitating the claim from Miller.

    Given how murky the whole UKAD affair with Whyte is and the fact that we would have zero knowledge about his issue without the UKAD source leaking it to Hauser, I'd say that without a solid rebuttal there may well be something in the whole TUE thing.

    This is the statement that his team issued after the Ruiz fight when Dillian Whyte made comments expressing his view that Joshua lost because he couldn't dope in the States:

    "That is completely and utterly false. Anthony is one of the most tested athletes in UK sport. Unlike many of his rivals, including Dillian, he has never failed a drugs tested or needed drugs to enhance his performance."

    This is the exact same type of statement that all exposed drug cheats like Lance Armstrong and Marion Jones used to issue. And there was no denial of the TUE allegation either.

    I've said it before but you need to pay attention to the words of these statements. This is the statement that Mo Farah issued after his old coach Salazar was banned for doping his athletes this week:

    "I’m relieved that USADA has, after four years, completed their investigation into Alberto Salazar. I left the Nike Oregon Project in 2017 but as I’ve always said, I have no tolerance for anyone who breaks the rules or crosses a line. A ruling has been made and I’m glad there has finally been a conclusion."

    I mean seriously, what the **** is that? The general public who believe him to be innocent of doping would have expected him to come out and say that he has never used drugs, to condemn Salazar and to insist that he was never provided with drugs when he worked with Salazar. He hasn't though. To any logical, objective observer it is pretty clear that he's not issuing a blanket denial due to the potential legal consequences if he ever is exposed.

    If I have missed something in a video or a statement where Joshua has come out and flat out denied the TUE allegation please bring it to my attention. And before anyone comes out with the "innocent before proven guilty" or "no evidence" stuff again, please, I'm not interested in that type of conjecture. Save that for the sheepish mass public who have never played a sport in their life and have absolutely no clue whatsoever about doping in sport.

    We know he's a lying sack of **** from his own positive test. So maybe a better source would be the first requirement,?

    I wouldn't fancy laying anyone a price that AJ is geared of his nut. But there is absolutely 0 official evidence.

    That’s the statement that I quoted. There is no statement on record that says “I have never required a TUE” or something similar. I know I’m nitpicking but as I said there’s a reason there is nothing on record to state that. So his team denied the use of TUE to a journalist but we have no actual quotes to state that. Look at the actual quote his team gave. Nothing about TUE and the same standard line that is parroted by all the athletes who have been exposed.

    It’s all in the details.

    This is funny to be fair.

    They may as well stand there at the start with Syringes hanging out them like crack addicts

    Eddie just leaving hospital with GGG.

    Yet let Whyte deal with the drugs hearing by himself.

    It’s a 6 month ban isn’t it, it’s gotta be. I appreciate it’s a different kind of PEDs use, but Alvarez got 6 months, Miller got 6 months, there’s other examples too of similar length bans. If you’re a big money maker for the promoters and TV then you’re protected. It’s so worth risking it now. Obviously, if you have little or no profile then you’ll serve a 2 year ban.

    Whyte will probably have another tick over fight in January. He will fight absolutely anyone fella’s, anyone, he’s scared of nobody...as long as they’re smaller in height and stature he’ll fight them!!
