This Saturday, boxing fans will witness one of the most keenly anticipated fights in the last decade in the heavyweight division: chapter three between Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder.
However, before fighting, the protagonists must present a series of requirements that the WBC has implemented for years with the intention of protecting fighters, including: blood tests, MRI, ophthalmological exams, physical tests, pre-weigh ins 30, 14 and 7 days (in this division this requirement does not apply as there is no limit for the big guys).
The WBC recognizes the professionalism of the WBC Champion, Tyson Fury, and former world champion, Deontay Wilder, as they have complied with all the medical requirements, examinations and safety protocols very much needed.
We admire the commitment and dedication of these warriors and their respective teams to fulfill these requirements.
We wish them them best of luck in their duel, which will undoubtedly be one of the most thrilling fights of the year.
