The adverse finding was found before Whyte’s WBC eliminator against Oscar Rivas in July, a fight Whyte was cleared to fight in with news of the finding not emerging until the following week.

                                                                                                                                                   

A joint statement from Whyte and UKAD released on Friday night confirmed the Brixton heavyweight was charged with an anti-doping violation earlier this year – a charge that has since been withdrawn.

(Round (******************************

Wach is on top in this final round as he looks for the big finish. A great left hook from Whyte eases the pressure somewhat, but he is knackered in there and can’t really afford to throw what he has left into those big shots.

Whyte though finds a huge left uppercut! Wach is hurt and stumbles away from safety. That should be enough for him.

Round 9

Wach has soaked up a lot throughout this fight and looks to have plenty left in the tank. Whyte is all of a sudden looking tired, moving heavily with his mouth open as he is forced to dig in.

He misses with a huge over hand right that invites Wach to come in with the counter shot – Whyte just about evades it.

Whyte maintains the pressure, finding a home for some stiff body shots as he looks to slow Wach down.
