WBC Demands Fury Join Clean Boxer Program
Tyson Fury may be fighting Deontay Wilder on December 1st in Los Angeles, but if he does not enroll in the WBC’s Clean Boxing Program by the end of this week, it may not be for Wilder’s WBC world heavyweight championship.
Following a three city tour last week, Fury has not enrolled in the program, which is the drug testing arm of the WBC, and not signing up will end up costing him the title, even if he wins.
“If he does not enroll, then the WBC cannot sanction the fight,” Sulaiman exclusively told Sky Sports.
“If Tyson Fury does not enroll in the clean boxing program, the fight is not for the WBC title. He cannot win the title.
“He told me personally, publicly on Twitter. He sent a message, he had a fight, and he has been struggling with paperwork, so we understand that. We have that flexibility in our protocol, but now it’s time. Time is now.”
The program developed by the WBC and Vada in 2016, its goal is to end the use of performance enhancing drugs in boxing, and also “educate and prevent boxers about the dangers of substances and the tragic effects that they can lead to.”
