Dillian Whyte will return to the ring in a heavyweight clash with Mariusz Wach on the undercard of the Andy Ruiz Jr vs Anthony Joshua rematch, December 7 at the Diriyah Arena in Saudi Arabia.

Brixton’s ‘Body Snatcher’ beat Oscar Rivas to become WBC ‘interim’ champion and, as a result, mandatory challenger for the heavyweight world title on July 20, but has not fought since.

This is partly because it was subsequently reported that a drugs test returned three days prior to the Rivas win stated that Whyte’s system contained an adverse finding and his lawyers are currently attempting to resolve an ongoing UKAD case on the matter.

As he is not suspended while this is being dealt with, the 31-year-old has scheduled a ring return.

His opponent will be tough Polish veteran Wach (35-5, 19 KOs), who was a solid contender once upon a time and even challenged Wladimir Klitschko back in 2012, losing by unanimous decision.

Wach has since been beaten by Alexander Povetkin, Jarrell Miller, Artur Szpilka and Martin Bakole, but recently bounced back with two wins against low level opposition in Poland.

In the main event on December 7, Whyte’s old rival Joshua will attempt to regain his unified heavyweight world titles fromRuiz Jr.
