WBC's Bold Move Six Judges and Video Replay for Usyk vs Fury Showdown

In a surprising turn of events, WBC president Mauricio Sulaiman has thrown a curveball into the boxing world by suggesting the use of six judges for the highly anticipated undisputed heavyweight championship clash between Oleksandr Usyk and Tyson Fury on May 18 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

Sulaiman’s reasoning behind this unconventional proposal is clear – to eliminate any possibility of controversy in the outcome. Acknowledging the resistance to change in the sport, he emphasizes the need for innovation, especially in a bout of this magnitude.

“Boxing is a sport in which change is very difficult to get. We’re purists, traditionalists, we don’t want changes,” Sulaiman stated, addressing concerns within the boxing community. Despite the skepticism surrounding the use of six judges, he stands firm on the idea, suggesting that it reduces the likelihood of a wrong decision.

To further enhance fair play, Sulaiman also advocates for the implementation of video replays. Citing instances where instant replays were successfully utilized, he highlights the importance of having the ability to review major controversial incidents in real-time, ensuring the right calls are made.

While the proposal for six judges and video replays may face resistance, Sulaiman remains resolute, driven by the intention to safeguard the integrity of the sport, particularly in what is deemed the biggest heavyweight fight in 25 years.

As the boxing world awaits the decision on these groundbreaking suggestions, one thing is certain – the Usyk vs Fury showdown is gearing up to be an unprecedented event, with the WBC pushing the boundaries to ensure a fair and controversy-free outcome.
