British boxer Tyson fury after defeating DevTeam Wilder captured the WBC heavyweight division, but this belt lined a lot of applicants.
First, the contract requires fury to fight again with Wilder. Second, until February 2021 fury needs to fight a mandatory Challenger for the WBC belt Gilliana white, who has already appealed to the court for this reason. And thirdly, fury agreed to two fights in 2021 against Anthony Joshua.
It is not excluded that the WBC will give the fury the status of the champion franchise that will allow you to skip the fight with the Wight.
Earlier, the WBC has been given the status of the franchise of lightweight champion Ukrainian Vasyl Lomachenko. This allowed the fighter to eliminate the need to fight mandatory challengers, and his belt got Devin to Hana, while Lomachenko can focus on a unification match with Teofilo Lopez.
WBC President Mauricio Sulaiman confirmed that the Board is considering to assign to fury status is the franchise champion.
