Could the Dillian Whyte case possibly have been handled worse?

Correct me if you see things differently but I can't think of a single way the Dillian Whyte case could have been handled worse than the way it has.

I am getting the impression Whyte is serving a silent suspension and Hearn is assisting him in suppressing it from the public by announcing every now and then that there is an upcoming meeting where he will clear his name.

Why are we still waiting for the sample b result?
I don't think we are.

The B sample is frozen as soon as it gets to the lab. Whyte could request that it's tested at any time.

I assume that either it has already been tested and will be included when/if the findings are revealed. Or more likely, Whyte will never request it because they know it will be the same result, and whatever defence they have is not based upon the b sample being different. They very rarely are.

There is such a veil of secrecy over this case anything could have transpired over the past 3 months without us even knowing.

My understanding is the B sample is only tested if requested by the athlete, and if no request is received the A test result (positive) stands.

If it wasn't for Hauser making this thing public I dare say we wouldn't even know Whyte has tested positive.

Makes me wonder how many times this has happened before, then when a fighter hasnt fought for a while they will just say its an injury when they actually serving a ban

The Thomas Hauser podcast - which was actually recorded prior to him busting Whyte - would suggest there are plenty of skeletons in the closet.

Not really, he should learn how to just throw random wild shots up close and then cover up straight away if he needs to, don't try to be too trikier than its worth
