Anthony Joshua fight with Dillian Whyte called off after anti-doping test

Anthony Joshua’s fight against Dillian Whyte has been called off after a random anti-doping test on Whyte revealed “adverse analytical findings.”

The Voluntary Anti-Doping Association (VADA) stated it had notified the Association of Boxing Commissions and the British Boxing Board of Control that Whyte’s “random anti-doping protocol” had yielded negative results.

Matchroom said in a statement: “In light of this news, the fight has been canceled, and a full investigation will be conducted.” Sky Sports News have contacted Whyte’s team for comment.

Whyte took to social media to deny taking the reported substance and vowed to prove that he was “completely innocent”.

The fight had been due to take place at London’s O2 Arena on Saturday, August 12. Joseph Parker’s promoter David Higgins has said his fighter would step in as a replacement for a rematch with Joshua.

The pair met in Cardiff 2018 when Joshua inflicted the first loss of Parker’s heavyweight career, beating the New Zealand native by unanimous decision.
