Hearn believes Dillian Whyte will have hearing in early October.

“I think it's important it's dealt with before he fights again,” noted Hearn. “Right now, he can box tomorrow but I don't think that's necessarily right for the paying public. But it's important to know he's cleared to box. He's not suspended by anybody, he's cleared to box. He's able to box. But I just think for where he's at in his career, for the profile he's got that he needs to draw a line under this and that's what they're trying to do.”

When you take into account there was a hearing prior to the fight, this thing has dragged on for way too long. The weeks and weeks of silence have not been in anyone's best interest.

The irony that Hearn says although Dillian Whyte can box, he shouldn't for the sake of his profile.

What has changed since Whyte tested positive before the Rivas fight Eddie Hearn? You weren't worried about his profile when you allowed Whyte to fight Rivas with a positive drug test hanging over his head.

Is the Dillian blackout still happening?, I know he's only tweeted once since this blew up but saw him on an advert for celebrity masterchef the other day.

Through to tomorrow. Was competing against Greg Rutherford, Martha from Martha and the Vandellas, some dj who looks like a kids TV presenter, and an old French woman.

Was the best chef of the night, might have a new career if the hearing doesn't go well.

Dillian back on again tonight, fighting for a place in the semis. Needs to cook for Ade Edmondson from Bottom and the Young Ones!?

I make him the favourite to go through. Has looked the best to me so far. I don't usually watch this however, so take my opinion with a pinch of salt.

In other news, I think Kellie Maloney has either been on this series, or is scheduled to be on?

He has impressed me. That caramelised bananna dessert the other day was a big gamble, but the school kids loved it.

I saw someone on Twitter yesterday suggesting Whyte is already quietly serving a suspension, and I wouldn't be surprised if that's the case.
I wouldn’t be surprised about this at all.

Then get him on Masterchef to build his profile but cover for his absence from the ring and move on.

Disgusting if true. Having previously served a 2 year ban, he should be getting a 5 year ban.

Did see him on Masterchef though, he actually looked decent and got through to the semi finals.

Served clembuterol beef with a pickle jus.

Surely there has to be some kind of announcement one way or the other?

Even with the Fury's there was a conclusion to the process, and the findings and sentences were made public.

I hope we do get an announcement in early Oct as Hearn has suggested. I am doubtful I will like what I hear, (have a feeling there is going to be some fudge, or technicality involved), but I am trying to keep an open mind.

Possible, but if that were the case, why would Hearn be going around saying Whyte is still able to fight and that he 'expects some kind of hearing in early October' ?

Whyte looked pretty good getting through to the semis. Kellie Maloney on next week if anyone is bothered.

At least I think it was Kellie, looked more like Ruslan Provodnikov in the advert.
