Tyson Fury enrolls in WBC's Clean Boxing Program with Deontay Wilder showdown looming

Lineal heavyweight world champion Tyson Fury finally enrolled in the WBC's Clean Boxing Program on Monday.

Fury is due to challenge world titleholder Deontay Wilder for that sanctioning body's heavyweight world title belt Dec. 1 in the main event of a Showtime PPV card at Staples Center in Los Angeles.

WBC president Mauricio Sulaiman told ESPN on Sunday that he was not aware that Fury had not yet enrolled in the program; he said he would get in touch with Fury and his team immediately, and that if Fury did not enroll, the fight would not be sanctioned by the WBC.

"Tyson Fury has sent WBC Clean Boxing Program enrollment forms to VADA," he said.

Lou DiBella, Wilder's promoter, told ESPN that he contacted Dr. Margaret Goodman, the president of VADA, on Monday about a drug-testing program specific to the bout.
