    As far as the "Never explain, never complain" approach goes, it's been a masterclass by the BBOB and UKAD.

    I keep hearing that Dillian is not suspended and could fight tomorrow if he wanted... guess he just doesn’t want to then

    Your reminder that if Hauser hadn't have leaked this, literally no one would have even known.

    It begs the question, how many tests has Joshua failed that we've not heard about because it's been kept confidential as if it's not in the public's interest.

    I'm not sure it begs that SPECIFIC question but it does raise a general one around UK fighters.

    Possibly but a lot of conspiracy theories there too, EH and DW have been calling for this to be speeded up by the commission. The emphasis has to be on UKAD and they need to release the results of B sample. Im not saying DW is innocent I'm just saying that there isn't any evidence that DW is dragging proceedings and there has to be more clarity in future especially as we all know now that there was an adverse result ? Also I get people point (i try to stay completely unbiased here) the whole think stinks that Rivas wasnt told about result and EH would be screaming his bollocks off if shoe was on other foot

    That's very true.

    I should ask then is it really safe for foreign fighters in the uk when Steroid users are being protected?

    I think back to the Lomachenko fight against Campbell and I wondered how I'd never seen Luke fight like that in his whole career.

    Whyte chooses if or when the B sample is tested. He has not chosen to do this.

    I would imagine because he know there will be a some love dianobol in there. Much like sample a

    Its a bit more complicated than that, as UKAD can ban him without using the B sample for testing and at that point the Charge (Dillian Whyte) may request a b sample analysis.

    Whyte fighting a guy outside the top 15 for a stay busy fight. I reckon Whyte's opponent will still be better than likes Schwarz, Wallin and the majority of Wilder's title defence opponents.

    Course he's fighting in Saudi

    You don't need BBBoC approval to fight there...

    The b sample results will never be released. We know it is the same as the a sample for a fact, because if it wasnt the results would have been made public. In order for Whyte to use to fight against any ban or disciplinary action

    For all we know it could’ve been worse...Miller’s B sample revealed more PEDs...perhaps that’s why they haven’t bothered?
