WBC sanctions Wilder v Fury fight

WBC sanctions Wilder v Fury fight

WBC champion Deontay Wilder's representatives have said they will not resume negotiations for a fight with Briton Anthony Joshua until better terms are offered and that no such offer has been forthcoming, Sky News reported.

Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury will face each other in the ring on December 1st but the sparring outside of the ring has already started and will continue when BT Sport show their roundtable programme.

"If he does not enrol, then the WBC can not sanction the fight", Sulaiman told Sky Sports. "As soon as I found out that Fury sent in his forms, I sent Margaret an email and we will talk about getting the program set up".

During the war of words, Fury takes aim at Wilder's "Bronze Bomber" persona and warns him that his time as world champion is coming to an end. And everyone is going to say, 'How did he do that?' And I'm going to say, 'I told you so.' I'm back.

Lou DiBella, Wilder's promoter, told ESPN that he contacted Dr. Margaret Goodman, the president of VADA, on Monday about a drug-testing program specific to the bout.

Wilder knocked out Luis Ortiz in the 10th round on March 3, but only after that fight had originally been scheduled to take place in November 2017 was canceled - and later rescheduled - when Ortiz tested positive for two banned diuretics, chlorothaizide and hydrochlorothiazide, which he claimed he used to treat high blood pressure.

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 WBC and VADA (Voluntary Anti-Doping Assocation) joined forces in 2016 to eradicate drugs in boxing.
