WBC Demands Fury Join Clean Boxer Program

WBC Demands Fury Join Clean Boxer Program

On the other hand, Wilder has promised to prove Fury wrong once they get inside the ring and is adamant that he will win the fight by knock out.

Breazeale may be first in line for his title shot, but WBC president Mauricio Sulaiman made it abundantly clear that he wouldn't prevent the victor of Wilder/Fury facing Joshua in a unification fight, should a deal be agreed.

In February 2017, Wilder (40-0, 39 KOs) was scheduled to defend his title against Andrzej Wawrzyk, but the Polish product also failed a VADA test and was replaced on short notice by Gerald Washington.

Anthony Joshua's representatives have had a "much-improved" offer for a world heavyweight title unification fight against WBC champion Deontay Wilder turned down, promoter Eddie Hearn has said. I'm sorry to tell you that'. Both like to exchange verbal barbs with their opponents but between the ropes Fury is more considered and tactical whilst Wilder is the big swinging puncher.

Wilder subsequently chanted "there's only one Bronze Bomber" a number of times at Fury.


"Tyson Fury has sent WBC Clean Boxing Program enrollment forms to VADA", he said.

Fury won two tune-up bouts, in June and August, and then signed to face Wilder in one of the year's most significant fights.

The Briton, who like Wilder has an unbeaten record, said after the victory that he would prefer to take on the American next, but was happy to fight whoever came his way.

The WBC mandates that the all of its titleholders and contenders participate in the random drug-testing program overseen by the Voluntary Anti-Doping Association.
