Tyson Fury may be fighting Deontay Wilder on December 1st in Los Angeles, but if he does not enroll in the WBC's Clean Boxing Program by the end of this week, it may not be for Wilder's WBC world heavyweight championship. Although the deal for the fight was completed a couple of weeks ago and the fighters finished their three-city, two-country media tour last week, Fury had not yet enrolled.

"If he does not enrol, then the WBC can not sanction the fight", Sulaiman told Sky Sports.

And the Briton has taken that advice on board, with Sulaiman confirming that Fury has now signed up. But Goodman said, "VADA has not been contacted to conduct testing (beyond the WBC Clean Boxing Program) leading up to this upcoming fight".

The fight will be the biggest heavyweight showdown since Anthony Joshua's fight with Wladimir Klitschko and is likely to be the biggest test of Wilder's career so far.

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

"It's very quick to start up the program", DiBella said.

But that's not the last time we will see the two men in close quarters before the fight. Everything will get worked out this week now that the paperwork is in and then the testing can start.

"Fury has promised me a part in the program".

During the war of words, Fury takes aim at Wilder's "Bronze Bomber" persona and warns him that his time as world champion is coming to an end.

In February 2017, Wilder (40-0, 39 KOs) was scheduled to defend his title against Andrzej Wawrzyk, but the Polish product also failed a VADA test and was replaced on short notice by Gerald Washington.
