    Wait what?!
    I guess as long as he doesn't have it tested he will be suspended, right?! Because otherwise it's another blatant and easy loophole to just never let the b-sample tested (remember the G. Jones bull?) if you get caught.
    That would be absolutely ridiculous!

    You choose to open the b sample to clear your name or not but 99.9% of the time it comes back the same.
    Billy Joe Saunders has the option to open his too and refused it.

    This is giving me a very bad feeling. BJS didn't get suspended because they somehow allow the substance in the UK in training, and not in the US. But that doesn't hold up for Whyte.
    They can't let him walk, right. That would make UK anti doping the world's biggest farce.

    Given none of this would have ever seen the light of day had it not be for Hauser, I am sure they are just negotiating how much of the PPV cuts they need so they can use a loophole to clear Whyte.

    Not interested in the ‘Sky’ Perspective - just the perspective of my wallet. Approx a PPV every month right now - & from what I can remember, only Joshua Ruiz proved to be worthy ... & only because the outcome was so unexpected.

    200,000 odd watching our sport. You don’t get more niche than that.

    There is more than 200,000 watching. It's 200,000 buys which is probably around half a million viewers. Add in pubs and illegal streamers and you are over a million.

    For comparison the average viewing figures for an EPL match on Sky is 800,000 and on BT it's 700,000.

    Are you suggesting a score to Dave Allen as the co main ain't a good card?

    So true!

    Failed drugs test? Obscure set of gloves? Why does it matter

    I agree , its almost impossible to get caught and done for it these days. Just muddy the waters enough and unless you are completely stupid you'll more or less get away with it.

    True I agree about Sky, but we have a choice to not pay for it. To see the Loma v Campbell fight was well worth the money for me, as the technical quality was a joy to watch.
