The World Boxing Council (WBC) have been studying the idea of mandatory clashes in as many as 17 weight divisions, including heavyweight.

 

Tyson Fury after beating Deontay Wilder.

In August, the WBC decided that the winners of the October 9 fight between Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder would have 30 days from the date of the fight to secure a fight and contract against WBA-IBF-WBO champion Oleksandr Usyk, who is from Ukraine.

 

 

The Ukrainian had taken the crowns from Anthony Joshua in September.

 

 

If no agreement was reached in that window, then the WBC would put Dillian Whyte forward as the division’s mandatory representative to fight Fury.

 

 

Whyte, though, has filed a complaint under the WBC Rules and Regulations against the WBC. Now, the Court of Arbitration for Sport is considering the case.

 

 

As a result, the fight between Fury and Whyte has been put on ice. It should be remembered that Whyte earned his interim title in July 2019 by beating Colombian Oscar Rivas.

 

He has since lost his title – losing to Alexander Povetkin in August 2020 – but won it back against Povetkin again in March 2021.

 

 

Now a decision is being awaited before anything else happens.
