Default Re: Why did WBC let Vitali avoid mandatory Bermane Stiverne for two years?

Bermane's abilities are in doubt among boxing insiders. Nobody gives him any chance against someone like Vitali. As for Bermane's top ranking, it's due largely to the influence of his promoter. For these reasons, the WBC never pushed to force a mandatory for him.
