Dillian Whyte Cleared to Box Again After Positive Doping Test

Investigation Reveals Contaminated Supplement

Dillian Whyte has been given the green light to return to the boxing ring following an investigation that determined his positive doping test was caused by a contaminated supplement. The 35-year-old was set to face Anthony Joshua last August but the fight was canceled after he tested positive for "adverse analytical findings" in a Voluntary Anti-Doping Association test.

Relief and Anger for Whyte

After being cleared to fight again, Whyte expressed a mix of emotions, stating, "First of all, I'm relieved more than anything, but of course I'm angry as well because it's cost me so much." He explained the difficulties he faced during the investigation process and the impact it had on his career, particularly missing out on the opportunity to face AJ.

Joshua's Path After Whyte's Test

Following Whyte's withdrawal from the fight, Robert Helenius stepped in to face Joshua. The British boxer went on to defeat Helenius, setting up subsequent victories against Otto Wallin and now a upcoming match against Francis Ngannou. The winner of this bout is expected to face the winner of Tyson Fury vs Oleksandr Usyk for the undisputed heavyweight championship.
