TYSON FURY will fight Deontay Wilder for the WBC heavyweight title on December 1 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

For it to be a title fight, Fury needed to sign up to the WBC’s drug testing programme, which he has done. WBC president Mauricio Sulaiman confirmed, “Tyson Fury has sent WBC Boxing Clean Boxing Program enrolment forms to VADA.”

Fury and Wilder have embarked on a three city media tour from London to New York and Los Angeles, gleefully hurling insults at one another as tempers threatened to boil over.
