Fury: If Wilder Fights For The WBC Belt, Boxing is Corrupt

Ever since Vitali Klitschko stepped down as the WBC heavyweight champion a few days ago, there has been a mass frenzy of contenders who are looking to get a shot at the vacant belt. The World Boxing Council has ordered Chris Arreola and Bermane Stiverne to fight in a rematch for the vacant title.

If Arreola and Stiverne are unable to reach an agreement, then Deontay Wilder (30-0, 30KOs), ranked at number three, would fall in line to fight for the belt. Fury (21-0, 15KOs) says, because Wilder has never fought an eliminator, he should not get the opportunity of a title shot. Fury beat Kevin Johnson in a WBC title eliminator last December.

"Deontay Wilder, he thinks he's going to get somewhere. If Deontay Wilder gets a shot at that WBC belt before me, then boxing is definitely corrupt and bent. He's still a nobody. His last fight was against Nicolai Firtha, who I beat three years ago. He's fighting people in his 30th pro fight that I was fighting in 12 fights. Why would he deserve to fight for the heavyweight title in front of me, when he hasn't won a eliminator contest or nothing. He fought a lot of bums, 30-0, and now he wants to fight for the world title. If they want him to fight for the world title, they better get behind the cube, because it's Chris Arreola, Bermane Stiverne and Tyson Fury who fought elimination contests and won. Two of us three should fight for that world title if all things are straight," Fury told One The Ropes Boxing Radio.

As usual Fury is trying to talk himself into the big picture. I hope one of the top name bigs finally fight him and shut him up. Fury will not beat Stiverne, Wilder, Arreola or Wlad Clinch-ko. I think Chisora might take him now in a rematch! That's the fight I wana see.

[QUOTE=hougigo]Sky sports turned it down It's the WBC doe[/QUOTE] The only other option I see is if Floyd vs Khan does take place Wilder vs Fury on the under card :boxing: Why is anyone surprised that Wilder is #3 they see $$$$ and that's all they care about why do you think Pac is the #1 c...

I wonder what exactly is it is to Tyson Fury if Deontay Wider is a WBC title contender or not? If my memory serves me correctly, Tyson has said that World titles were irrelevant to him and that he only fights for money; Which was why he passed up a chance to face Kubrat Pulev for a IBF title elim...

What he really wanted to say is that the WBC is corrupt as most of us know this already.
