"The positive test result is believed to have come back on July 17. A knowledgeable source says that it was reported to the Whyte camp (including promoter Matchroom Boxing) and the British Boxing Board of Control by UKAD prior to Whyte-Rivas. However, the BBBC allowed the fight to proceed as scheduled".

So it was known PRIOR to the fight Whyte had tested positive but hushed?

As ludicrous as it sounds, and it's a fucking joke, I believe that the the A test is only a flag and the B test confirms a failure.

Only in fight sports do they find out some is cheating and still let them compete. Which is ridiculous considering the aim of any combat sport.

If true then they’re all fucking scummers!

Which raises an interesting question I guess? How many B tests in the history of drug testing have come back with a different result to the A test?

Not very many in my memory.

Secondary question though, I wonder what Whyte has tested positive to? It could be a recreational banned drug.

Spent the last 2 years bitching and complaining about how unfairly he's been treated and he's been juicing all along? Smh

I don’t know about the semantics, but was under impression from following USADA testing in UFC that the A sample is a confirmed positive and the B sample is taken and held so if the A sample is disputed by the guilty party they can test the B as a confirmation?

Like if he admitted it (he won’t), they don’t then test the B?

Cus of the joke of an outcome, I gave up reading on it, but it was actually reported that Tyson Fury's B test came back negative.

It's few and far between though, you're right.

I don’t recall any?

That’s a good shout on the recreational. Another thought I had was to rehab an injury? As physically he looked dog shit for him.

I'm genuinely not sure buddy.

It's a fucking joke. Somebody died Saturday night like and you've got shows going ahead after a 'fail'.

If it is a positive for a recreational drug I guess we can cut them some slack.

But if it is performance enhancing, FFS!

They knew 3 days BEFORE the fight!
