WBC president Mauricio Sulaiman defended Tyson Fury, who has a huge problem in arranging his next fight. The Briton has not been active for a long time, and this is apparently the reason why many avoid fighting him. Many expected that the 'Gypsy King' would arrange a fight with Oleksandr Usyk, which would without a doubt break all records.
However, there was a deadlock in the negotiations and the question is whether we will ever see these two boxing stars in the ring.
Mauricio Sulaiman talks about the options
Sulaiman emphasized that Fury is ready to fight anyone, but that many have abused the situation.
Most want huge money to be in the ring with Fury, but there is no such money at the moment. “Fury is a victim of what the world is today. They abused [the situation] and overestimated [themselves]. Nobody wants to fight Fury.
He wants to fight with everyone and is open to fight with everyone," said Sulaiman and continued: “So the WBC has ordered Wilder to fight Ruiz and therefore it is a mandatory position. They did not fight; we wanted it seven months ago.
While we were waiting, everyone thought that Fury would fight Usyk in March (the third month). We were confident, we waited and waited and waited, but it didn't happen. Now nobody wants to fight him - they say they will fight him but only for a huge amount of money, which is impossible because there is no money, or they want special conditions." In the end, the WBC may be the one to arrange the fight for him.
They will have to find an opponent for him. “Fury has to get in the ring so we'll deal with what's going on with Wilder and Ruiz. If he's not going to fight the final eliminator, then we have to go find something and get a Tyson Fury fight," -Sulaiman concluded.
Tyson Fury certainly deserves a big fight, but he's not the only one wondering about it. It's going to be an exciting few days and weeks before we find out what's in store for 'Gypsy King'
