WBC Champion Deontay Wilder posted a lengthy statement on Dillian Whyte’s failed drug test just a few hours after the news broke, slamming Eddie Hearn and the Bodysnatcher. Hearn dismissed Wilder’s criticism.

“There’s a lot of people with agendas,” Hearn told media when asked about Wilder’s comments.

“There’s a lot I can say and can’t say, legally, on this situation. What I can say is both guys were tested by VADA and UKAD in the build-up to this fight.

“Both fighters were cleared by them and the Board to take part in this fight. There was a hearing prior to this fight, where Dillian Whyte was asked to provide information. That hearing took part with an independent panel and he was cleared to fight. As far as I’m concerned as a promoter, that’s it.”
