Fury is due to challenge world titleholder Deontay Wilder for that sanctioning body's heavyweight world title belt December 1 in the main event of a Showtime PPV card at Staples Center in Los Angeles.

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

"If Tyson Fury does not enrol in the clean boxing programme, the fight is not for the WBC title".

"We keep requesting these meetings and they don't want them to take place, which is a bit unusual when you're talking about the biggest fight in world boxing", Hearn 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 told me personally, publicly on Twitter".

The denuclearization process, which looked so promising when Kim and Trump met in Singapore in June, is now looking stillborn. The pair discussed ending the reclusive state's nuclear weapons program and hostilities between Washington and Pyongyang.

With a little less than two months until the fight, a testing program tailored for the Wilder-Fury fight would start right around the same time that these programs normally would.

The Briton, who like Wilder has an unbeaten record, said after the victory that he would prefer to take on the American next, but was happy to fight whoever came his way. I'm going to reach out to him, because there has to be testing for the fight, out of competition. Previously, for positive doping tests at Wilder's frustrated battle with Alexander Povetkin, Luis Ortiz, Andrzej Auricom.

Loud megafit in the heavyweight division between DevTeam Wilder (40-0, 39 KO's) and Tyson fury (27-0, 19 KO's) in jeopardy. He can not win the title.

Joshua's promoter Eddie Hearn and his father Barry want the agreement in place before Wilder faces Fury. Fury eventually accepted a backdated two-year ban from UKAD.
