WBC - Arreola/Stiverne>Vitali
IBF - Cunningham>Pulev>Wlad

He'll probably lose his high ranking with the WBC for taking this fight too. He'll beat Cunningham but Pulev is a tough, tough fight which will probably yield a smaller purse than say an Arreola fight.

Strange fight unless his WBC ranking has been guaranteed.
True, it doesn't make sense . Maybe Fury thinks Cunningham and Pulev will be easy? Seems unlikely.
