Dillian Whyte

Whte was lined up to fight John McDermott for the English title at the Aintree Equestrian Centre on November 30 On the undercard of the David Price versus Matt Skelton bill, but that fight looks like it’s is off after Whyte awaits a decision by the British Boxing Board of Control. His team are currently speaking to officials to try and resolve the matter that Whyte says is a ‘genuine mistake’

It seems he bought the supplement energy drink that contained the substance that 6-months ago was added to the banned Anti-Doping-Agency list and has been taking it for a while to help with tiredness before training.
Whyte, 24, from Brixton is unbeaten in 9 fights and is an highly rated prospect for the future and he pleads his innocence and lack of knowledge in such things, claiming he would never cheat and didn’t realise he was doing anything wrong.
The (DMAA) that came back positive was the same substance that Enzo Maccarinelli tested positive for recently. He has since been reinstated to fight after unwittingly taking the supplement and Whyte should be granted the same. This drug substance can of worms needs some clarity and understanding. Boxers are unclear of what they are taking and need to be educated more in this field obviously, before our sport is tarnished with all the wrong press and pointed fingers.
