Wilder and Fury will meet on December 1 in Los Angeles

Wilder and Fury will meet on December 1 in Los Angeles

As of Sunday, Fury, whom the WBC recently rated No. 3, was still not enrolled.

Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury will face each other in the ring on December 1st but the sparring outside of the ring has already started and will continue when BT Sport show their roundtable programme.

"If he does not enrol, then the WBC can not sanction the fight", Sulaiman exclusively told Sky Sports. "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". He personally promised me he will come into the program.

Deontay Wilder, who now holds the World Boxing Council heavyweight title has claimed that he is part Nigerian. Both like to exchange verbal barbs with their opponents but between the ropes Fury is more considered and tactical whilst Wilder is the big swinging puncher. Ortiz previously failed a Nevada State Athletic Commission drug test in 2014 which led to a suspension and fine and cost him an interim world title.

Loud megafit in the heavyweight division between DevTeam Wilder (40-0, 39 KO's) and Tyson fury (27-0, 19 KO's) in jeopardy.

In May 2016, Wilder was scheduled to defend his title in Moscow against mandatory challenger Alexander Povetkin, but nine days before the fight, Povetkin tested positive for the banned substance meldonium, forcing the fight to be canceled.

The Briton spoke at length how he wants to face Wilder in a blockbuster bout, while Fury has also been mentioned.

The WBC mandates that the all of its titleholders and contenders participate in the random drug-testing program overseen by the Voluntary Anti-Doping Association.
