World Boxing Council president Mauricio Sulaiman is hoping that his organization's heavyweight champion, Tyson Fury, will next step in the ring with WBO, IBF, IBO, WBA champion Oleksandr Usyk.

Sulaiman was ringside this past Saturday night, as Fury battered and stopped Derek Chisora at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London.

Afterwards, Fury and Usyk came face to face to exchange words.

Sulaiman says it's the perfect time to make such a fight - as the WBC recently ordered a final eliminator between former world champions Andy Ruiz and Deontay Wilder.

"This is a perfect time to do a unification," Sulaiman told Sky Sports News on Monday.

"We ordered a final elimination between Wilder and Andy Ruiz. At this time we have no mandatory contenders, so this is a perfect moment for the unification."

The IBF recently ordered a mandatory fight between Usyk and top rated contender Filip Hrgovic.

Sulaiman does not expect the IBF or any of the other sanctioning organizations to derail an undisputed fight.

"Hopefully it will not get to that point, and the four organizations will accept to sanction the ultimate undisputed fight and keep it that way," Sulaiman added.

"Mandatories are a complicated process, each organization has their own rules, their own agendas, but the importance of this fight is far beyond any organization, so we're supporting it and we'll do everything possible to make sure it takes place."

If for whatever reason a fight with Usyk falls apart, Fury has named unbeaten Olympic silver medal winner Joe Joyce as a backup opponent.

Sulaiman has no problem with sanctioning a fight between Fury and Joyce.

"No [there is no problem sanctioning that fight]. At this time, as I mentioned, we don't have the mandatory contender yet. As soon as we have one, we can set timelines. Our ultimate goal is to have a unification," Sulaiman said.
