WBC Demands Fury Join Clean Boxer Program

WBC Demands Fury Join Clean Boxer Program

WBC president Mauricio Sulaiman told ESPN on Sunday that he was not aware that Fury had not yet enrolled in the program; he said he would get in touch with Fury and his team immediately, and that if Fury did not enroll, the fight would not be sanctioned by the WBC.

The boxing champ said this in a round table discussion with his opponent Tyson Fury against whom he's to defend his title against.

"If he does not enrol, then the WBC can not sanction the fight", Sulaiman told Sky Sports.

Fury returned to the ring earlier this year and agreed a Los Angeles fight with Wilder after the American failed to finalise a deal with Anthony Joshua following lengthy negotiations. And everyone is going to say, 'How did he do that?' And I'm going to say, 'I told you so.' I'm back.

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

The ability of the Russian-American crew to return safely after the latest mishap drew relief from senior Russian officials. The Soyuz MS-10 rocket had four boosters strapped to its central core.

Whatever the outcome of the fight, the victor will face the mandatory challenger for the WBC title Dominic Breazeale, who last fought in November 2017, beating Eric Molina, if a deal isn't agreed with a certain Anthony Joshua with regards to a mega-fight in April next year, that is.

Goodman also said that there has been no request made yet from fight organizers for a specialized testing protocol that goes beyond the somewhat limited scope of the WBC's Clean Boxing Program.

Fury (27-0, 19 KOs) has a history with VADA.

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. He can not win the title.
