Wilder Lashes Out at Whyte: I Can't Wait To Hear The Excuse

WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder has continued to verbally blast Dillian Whyte, who up until Tuesday was the mandatory challenger to Wilder's crown.

Two days ago, the WBC released an official statement which announced that their organization had provisionally suspended Whyte of his recently secured status as their interim-champion and mandatory challenger to Wilder's belt.

Last week, it was revealed that Whyte had tested positive for two metabolites of the banned substance dianabol. The pre-fight test was administered by UKAD in connection to Whyte's WBC final eliminator with Oscar Rivas, which occurred last month at the O2 Arena in London.

The sanctioning body had received confirmation that Whyte's 'A' sample had an adverse finding. The WBC wants the boxer to appear at a hearing. If the hearing is ruled in Whyte's favor, he will regain his status as interim-champion and mandatory challenger.

Whyte proclaimed his innocence in a brief statement on social media - and his promoter, Eddie Hearn, has also backed that claim.

On the other hand, Wilder believes his British rival is not being truthful.

"I can’t wait to hear the excuse. Will it be an energy drink this time? Shame on him," Wilder told Jeff Powell of The Daily Mail.

"He knew what he was doing. They all do. Do they think they can get away with it? He knew what he was doing. They all do. Do they think they can get away with it? That’s what’s going on now. They’re trying to find a trick to pluck out of the bag."

Wilder is more upset that Rivas and his handlers were unaware of the positive test.

Whyte and Hearn were aware of the issue on July 17th, with the contest taking place three days later. A hearing was held on the morning of the fight with the National Anti-Doping Panel, who allowed Whyte to proceed with the contest. Rivas and his team were unaware of the hearing. 

But the issue of Whyte's drug test has yet to be resolved, as the boxer and his legal team are dealing with UKAD and the British Boxing Board of Control.

While several UK outlets have reported that Whyte made a request to have his 'B' sample tested, there is no confirmation that he went in that direction.

"We all know that B samples always come back the same. He knew what he was doing. They all do. Do they think they can get away with it? They probably got the cycle wrong. They’re saying there were only tiny traces in the test but that’s times three substances so how much had he been taking for how long for that to still be there?," Wilder stated.

"Not telling Rivas he was fighting a man who had just tested positive for PEDs is not only wrong but disgusting. He was going to put his life on the line against someone who was putting things in his body which put him at even greater risk. I understand the needs of people to make money and feed their families. But we are entitled to go into the ring, confident that the other guy has not done anything to give himself an advantage which increases the risk of even more serious harm to those of us who are risking our lives to entertain others."
