WBC Pres Excited For Wilder-Fury

Speaking with ESPN Deportes, WBC President Mauricio Sulaiman is excited for the rumored showdown between Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder this November in Las Vegas.

While Sulaiman was not happy that Anthony Joshua let a showdown with Wilder “slip through his fingers,” the WBC President is interested to see how Wilder matches Fury’s style.

“Tyson Fury is a boxer who has important credentials, he beat Wladimir Klitschko categorically. He had problems, he has already returned to boxing. He’s a tall, strong, technical boxer…. he holds, hits, and makes the most spectacular fights. Anthony Joshua had the opportunity but he let it go, there were very bad negotiations. Fury has come out and it will be a great fight,” said Sulaiman to ESPN Deportes.

“It’s a great year for boxing, the WBC is going through a great moment, and there is still a lot to do – but what is happening in the ring is exciting.”
