WBC insists Fury must enrol in boxing programme

Anthony Joshua's representatives have had a "much-improved" offer for a world heavyweight title unification fight against WBC champion Deontay Wilder turned down, promoter Eddie Hearn has said. "As soon as I found out that Fury sent in his forms, I sent Margaret an email and we will talk about getting the program set up".

Morecambe's Tyson Fury has told Deontay Wilder it is "written in the stars" that he will beat the American in style when they clash in the ring.

WBC president Mauricio Sulaiman said he was not aware that Fury had not enrolled in the program even though Fury should not have appeared in the WBC rankings until he had enrolled in the program.

Wilder told Fury, "It's not your time", and added: "This is my time". He personally promised me he will come into the program. I will write to him right now.

"If he does not enroll, then the WBC can not sanction the fight", Sulaiman told Sky Sports.

When Wilder responds by singing, 'There's only one Bronze Bomber, ' Fury continues: 'It doesn't matter.

Wilder (40-0, 39 KOs), who will be making his eighth title defense, has always been a strong advocate for a testing program specific to each of his fights, in part because he has seen three previous bouts canceled or had to find a new opponent because his original foe failed a drug test.

Fury admitted that he had been using drugs, drinking heavily and that he was also dealing with mental health issues.

Fury won two tune-up bouts, in June and August, and then signed to face Wilder in one of the year's most significant fights.
