Dillian Whyte latest: ‘Body Snatcher’ is back training and ‘can’t wait’ for next fight, reveals coach Mark Tibbs
Dillian Whyte’s coach Mar Tibbs has revealed he is now back training ahead of a potential return later this year, despite his ongoing UKAD case.
The ‘Body Snatcher’ beat Oscar Rivas on points on July 20, though it was subsequently revealed a drugs test returned three days earlier stated that his system contained an adverse finding.
Boxing fans have since been confused over what happens next, with some believing we are currently waiting for the ‘B sample’ of Whyte’s test to come out.
Promoter Eddie Hearn previously clarified this was not the case and has since revealed his man will face a hearing in early October.
While all this is going on, Tibbs told iFL TV: “I’ve had a couple of training sessions with Dillian.
“Just a bit of down-time training, not boxing training.
“Seeing him at the weekend, bit more training.”
Asked if Whyte is eager to put an end to the turmoil and return to boxing, Tibbs continued: “He can’t wait, he can’t wait to get back fighting again.
“That’s why he’s a little bit frustrated, but I think he’s got some business to sort out.
“And he’s gonna get back, he loves fighting, he absolutely loves having a fight, a tear-up.”
