WBC Open to Anthony Joshua Facing Winner of Fury vs. Usyk Showdown

WBC President Mauricio Sulaiman has expressed openness to the idea of Anthony Joshua challenging the winner of the anticipated heavyweight title fight between Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk. With the bout set to take place at Kingdom Arena in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, on May 18, boxing fans are eagerly anticipating the outcome.

Fury, the current WBC titleholder, and Usyk, who holds the WBA, WBO, IBF, and Ring Magazine championships, are slated for an immediate rematch, leaving Joshua temporarily sidelined from the championship picture. However, Sulaiman is advocating for Joshua, recognizing his recent impressive victory over former UFC heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou in Saudi Arabia.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Sulaiman stated, “The WBC position right now is very open to support the undisputed champion taking on the fights that the fans want to see.” He commended Joshua’s performance against Ngannou, highlighting his power and precision in the ring.

Sulaiman emphasized the unpredictability of boxing and the significance of styles in matchups. He acknowledged the shifting narratives surrounding fighters based on their recent performances and urged fans to appreciate the diversity and dynamics of the sport.

As Fury prepares to challenge Usyk in a bid to secure victory and make history, the conversation surrounding potential future matchups continues to evolve. With Sulaiman’s endorsement, the possibility of Joshua stepping into the ring with the eventual winner adds another layer of intrigue to the heavyweight division.
