Brook’s last 5 years have been a bigger joke than Khans

They both need to call it a day

Brook is over rated it's untrue, one good win on his CV in about 40 fights, went life and death with Carson Jones, GGG basically beat him in one round then Spence finished the job, never got the Brook hype, it's hard to rate a fighter whose whole career he spent fighting no marks bar Porter which was a great win

Khan's never needed brook as Brook is a nothing, a no name whereas Khan is known worldwide with a big media profile, it's why got paid 7 mil for 12 minutes work the other week, it's why he fights all the big names and it's guaranteed to be entertaining

Khan hasn't been entertaining for years.

The only reason people tune in when he fights big names is that they know they are going to see him knocked out cold.

Which is why a lot of people watch combat sport in the first place.

Khan at least gives people what they want in that way.

Both wastes of space

Hardly a surprise, seen the photos of him a few years ago, massive muscles. The second time he has been popped now, they're just waiting for the BBC sample, if found guilty he should be banned for life/5 years

He must've been an idiot somehow avoided VADA but got popped by UKAD

How anyone can think the likes of Joshua are natural is hilarious

Joshua has just reached out to a new drug coach too, this is why a drug cheat like Conte is worth their weight in gold as they probably have the VADA testing sitting in their lab working how to get round it

Chisora on the special stuff to, all of a sudden makes a resurrection two years ago, looks better than ever under what Haye is supplying with him too

Deaths and drugs.

Not a great week for the noble art of boxing.

And as Duke Mckenzie (I think) said "If you knowingly go into a ring into a combat situation and kill your opponent when you are on PED's, is that murder or at least manslaughter?"

Silence from Sky Sports too, as if it never happened. Conveniently after they mugged their loyal fanbase of £20 to watch a guy fight they already knew had failed a test. Let alone the fact Matchroom and Whyte knew, but didn’t tell Rivas’s team. This will surely have an ugly ending.

If Ruiz beats up Joshua again, their boxing and box office empire is going to be heavily damaged

Hearn and the rest of the team new on the 17th that he'd tested positive, yet the fight went ahead..

What if he'd seriously hurt the guy?

And Hearn wonders why people don't like him?

Whyte is releasing a statement today, apparently.

Hearn meant to be taking all sort of injunctions out on the Whyte stuff and the TUE exemptions Joshua has

Hearn is probably more scared of Whyte can say and do, as he is not exactly one to watch his mouth, he could potentially blow the whole lid of the Uk drugs cheat, I mean Ingle's gym is a joke

Hearn in full MP and spin mode here

" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Best bit is all of last week he accused Pacquaio of being on drugs! I mean he blatantly is but the irony

Absolute disgrace from everyone concerned. Hearn, Whyte and the BBBoC all need serious investigating. On a week when two fighters have lost their lives in the ring, if the stories are true, Hearn has allowed a fighter who has tested positive to drugs to fight without even telling the other fighter. And all for a pound note. I hope they get everything coming to them if this turns out to be true.

" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; minute 1 to minute 2 makes pretty grim viewing for Matchroom. Disgraceful.

I'm sure Whyte says - 'kin 'ell innit, Jeez Christ bruv. I ain't slept at all the last couple of days.

Sure Hearn says: Mate that was miracle of all miracles wasn't it? I had a statement for you ready to go then they just phoned me up and was like we did it and i was like oh my god.


Whyte mentions about keeping a bit of his hair, passing 2 tests in 2 days and then "1 in a million".

Doesn't look good. Shame as I really liked Whyte.

Someone on the comments has said:

Whyte: ******ing Hell.
Hearn: Alright Mate?
Whyte: ******ing hell in it, Jesus Christ bruv. I haven't slept at all the last couple of days.
Hearn: Nor have I, but I didn't have to fight.
Whyte: ******sake.
Hearn: Mate, that was the miracle of all miracles wasn't it?
Whyte: That's the difference between being a professional...
Hearn: I had everything, I had a statement for you ready to go.... and he just phone me up and was like... we did it and i was like oh my god.
Whyte: I need to keep my hair for some reason. It's a ******ing stitch up, I passed 2 tests in 2 days and then one in a million..
