World boxing champion Deontay Wilder Claims Nigerian Heritage

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

Wilder has since announced he will fight Tyson Fury in the United States on December 1, while Joshua's representatives have been pushing for Wilder to reach a conditional agreement to fight Joshua next year.

"If he does not enroll, then the WBC can not sanction the fight", Sulaiman 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".

Wilder told Fury, "It's not your time", and added: "This is my time".

"He told me personally, publicly on Twitter".

Deontay Wilder, who now holds the World Boxing Council heavyweight title has claimed that he is part Nigerian.

When Wilder later warned his opponent that on the night of the fight, "You're not going to be looking into the eyes of Deontay Wilder, you'll be looking in the eyes of the Bronze Bomber - you're going to feel him too", Fury asked if he was talking about "an alter ego" or "a spirit". Previously, for positive doping tests at Wilder's frustrated battle with Alexander Povetkin, Luis Ortiz, Andrzej Auricom.

Fury (27-0, 19 KOs) has a history with VADA. He failed two VADA tests for cocaine in 2016, which forced the cancelation of his rematch with Wladimir Klitschko, whom he had upset by decision to win three world titles belts and the lineal championship in November 2015.

Fury admitted that he had been using drugs, drinking heavily and that he was also dealing with mental health issues.

Joshua's promoter Eddie Hearn and his father Barry want the agreement in place before Wilder faces Fury.
