Anthony Joshua’s bout with Dillian Whyte next weekend has been cancelled.
The pair were due to meet at the O2, London, with Joshua winning the first bout but it has now been scrapped.
In a statement Matchroom boxing said:
‘Today, the Voluntary Anti-Doping Association (VADA) informed Matchroom, the Association of Boxing Commissions and the British Boxing Board of Control that Dillian Whyte had returned adverse analytical findings as part of a random anti-doping protocol.
In light of this news, the fight will be cancelled, and a full investigation will be conducted.’
