Tyson Fury is Given Green Light By WBC For Deontay Wilder

According to World Boxing Council President Mauricio Sulaiman, Tyson Fury has been cleared to fight for Deontay Wilder's WBC title after finally enrolling on their Clean Boxing Program.

Fury, 30, is currently in Big Bear, California for his training camp - as the contest takes place on December 1 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.

Earlier this week, Sulaiman made it clear that he was unwilling to sanction the fight until Fury had enrolled in their anti-doping program. Fury had tested positive for a banned substance in early 2015, and made a deal with testing agency UKAD for a back-dated two year ban.

The WBC's Clean Boxing Program is run and regulated by VADA (Voluntary Anti-Doping Association).

Sulaiman said to BoxingScene.com's Declan Taylor: "I can confirm Tyson Fury has now sent the Clean Boxing Program enrolment forms to VADA testing.

"Where you are located is the most important piece of information, where we can find you to perform a test, it is very simple.

“You put down your information and every time you make a move you have to report it. So if you're going to the movies and it's more than one mile away, you report it. It's the optimum way of doing it. The administration is complicated but we are doing our best.

“If you are in the same place you don't have to communicate anything. Let's say I am based at the Intercontinental hotel in London then I'm here. But if I am going to go more than one mile away – let's say to the o2 Arena for an event – I must report it.

“You can report it via email or entering the information on a new app we have developed. He would have that app on his phone and he can enter where he is going.

“I would say on this program we randomly test between 20 and 30 boxers every month so there's a fair chance Tyson Fury or Deontay Wilder would be tested as part of that.”

Sulaiman also noted that he would be very proud to see Fury as their champion - should he defeat Wilder, who is the heavy favorite to win the fight.

“If he wins, I will be very proud to see him as the WBC champion,” said Sulaiman of Fury.

“We have a long story with Tyson Fury. We have been in communication with very years back to when he was promoted by Mick Hennessy. One time we suspended him because of foul language, then he properly apologised.

“Then he had the opportunity to fight for another title and he was successful. He has since had problems but he is now welcome, he is rated and he is ready to fight for the title.”

I still don't understand what Fury's long-term strategy is if he has one at all. Maybe he believes he will beat Wilder and then be in the front seat for a mega fight and payday against AJ. If it's a…

Even with PED Fury cannot beat Wilder. He can only beat Wilder in trash talking
