WBC yet to sanction Deontay Wilder v Tyson Fury fight

Boxing-Wilder camp wants 'new offer' for Joshua…

Wilder has since announced he will fight Tyson Fury in the United States on December 1, while Joshua's representatives have been pushing for Wilder to reach a conditional agreement to fight Joshua next year.

The impact of this decision by the WBC president is that the bout will be relegated to a non-title fight; hence, if Fury defeats Wilder, he will not win the WBC strap save he enrolls for the programme.

The 30-year-old Briton (27-0, 19 KOs) said on TV while sat at a table across from Wilder
(40-0, 39 KOs): "The fact that I've chosen you after having two fights coming back, and that I want this fight, is a statement for the world to see".

"To date, VADA has not received Clean Boxing Program enrollment forms on Mr. Fury", Dr. Margaret Goodman, the president of VADA, told ESPN. "Mr".

Wilder told Fury, "It's not your time", and added: "This is my time".

When Wilder responds by singing, 'There's only one Bronze Bomber, ' Fury continues: 'It doesn't matter. "He personally committed to me to enroll".

Wilder, who was cooperating with the officers of VADA.

Wembley Stadium has been booked on April 3 for Joshua but negotiations for him to fight Wilder remain at an impasse and the American has a rematch clause in his contract with Fury in the event that he loses in Los Angeles.

Fury has also had issues with UK Anti-Doping, the agency that oversees drug testing in his home country, because he failed a drug test for the performance-enhancing steroid Nandrolone related to a 2015 fight - a fight that took place before he faced Klitschko - for which results were not disclosed until June 2016. He can not win the title. Fury eventually accepted a backdated two-year ban from UKAD.
