Fury vs. Boytsov Clash Will Be a WBC "Semi-Eliminator"

By Rick Reeno

WBC President Jose Sulaiman has advised BoxingScene.com that Tyson Fury (19-0, 14KOs) vs. Denis Boytsov (31-0, 25KOs) has been approved as a semi-final heavyweight eliminator. The winner will become the next candidate in line for a shot at the championship currently held by Vitali Klitschko (45-2, 41KOs).

"It will be a semi-final eliminator," Sulaiman confirmed to BoxingScene.com. 

Heavyweights Chris Arreola (35-2, 30KOs) and Bermane Stiverne (22-1-1, 20KOs) are already scheduled to fight in a final WBC eliminator on December 15th in Venezuela - per the bout agreement issued by promoter Don King. The winner of that fight is going to become Vitali's next mandatory challenger.

The winner of Fury-Boytsov, which has a date of December 1 in Belfast, will fall directly in position to fight the winner of Vitali vs. Arreola/Stiverne.

Of course, the entire scenario could be switched around if Vitali, 41, decides to retire from boxing in December. Vitali may pursue a full-time career in politics. If that happens, then you could expect the winners of the two eliminators to fight for the vacant championship.

[QUOTE=D-MiZe;12659783]You're so blind. You make it sound like it was the WBC who forced Fury-Boytsov to fight when Boytsov said he'd only fight Fury if it was for an eliminator. They make it the eliminator and then conveniently change it…

Arreola and Fury should win, but don't count Boytsov out just yet, he's a great puncher for a small guy.
