WBC suspends Whyte's interim title
Sample "A" picked by UKAD of Dillian Whyte before his fight against Oscar Rivas, was positive for traces of banned substances.
In light of this adversity and in anticipation of the results of its own investigation and trial, WBC temporarily suspended Dillian Whyte as an interim champion and deprived him of the status of mandatory challenger in the heavyweight division.
WBC has notified Whyte and his team of its decision and that it would give Whyte the opportunity to voice their position on pre-trial hearing WBC, which will be held at the place and time that will be announced in the near future.
In the course of the investigation and hearing WBC offers Whyte and his team to provide any available information and materials, as well as any exculpatory evidence which they consider necessary.
