    Why are the WBC pushing for a decision from Fury 2 weeks after fighting a Mandatory?
    Surley he is entitled to a voluntary now anyway.
    Hearn has been lobbying them like a politician trying to get the belt online for Usyk to become undisputed so he can claim he was part of the undisputed HW title fight knowing if it isn't on the line he has no chance of ever been part of it again.
    If i was Fury i would say im not vacating and will have a voluntary in around 11 months get ****ed Eddie and get ****ed the WBC.
    Even if he is retiring he should sit on the belt for the next 11 months out of principle against these big stiff idiots. Bum dossers the lot of them.

    Fury said he was retiring. If other promoters weren't lobbying to release the belt for their fighters, there would be something badly wrong.

    Assume Hearn is only doing this to prove himself right, that Fury won't retire, and he was the guy who 'outed' the decision.

    In order to plan for the future they need to know what his intentions are. It would be pretty dysfunctional if a fighter publicly retired but kept his belt and the sanctioning body just sat there waiting. The belt would effectively be out of the game.

    Fury will get some sort of bull**** belt that means he gets automatic shot so he can claim to be retired when everyone knows he's not. What was it they gave Bellew when he moved to heavyweight?

    What would be wrong with that, if it was within the original parameters of a voluntary defence?

    Don’t forget he has the Aztec belt, from the WBC, think it was for the Wallin fight. With such a dire effort from Whyte, perhaps they reckon he could have a quick turnaround, being a “Fighting Man!”

    It’s not Hearn who has been lobbying it’s PBC as Wilder is sat at number 1

    If he retires he could be elevated to champion emeritus, this is what happened to Vitali Klitschko, this gives him the option to come back as mandatory challenger should he decide to return. This would be his best option IMO.

    3.25 Champion Emeritus. In its discretion, the WBC may, upon a 2/3rd vote of the Board of Governors, designate in each weight category one or more WBC Champions Emeritus. The WBC may bestow the recognition of WBC Champion Emeritus upon a present or past WBC World Champion of extraordinary prestige, reputation, stature, or everlasting legacy in the sport. A WBC Champion Emeritus shall also be an Ambassador of Good Will on behalf of the WBC. A WBC Champion Emeritus shall be free to display and exhibit his special belt in any social ceremony or sports event. The WBC Champion Emeritus recognition is the highest of honors the WBC grants to any boxer, and cannot be lost or transferred to anyone inside or outside the ring. Champion Emeritus recognition may be withdrawn only by the WBC its sole discretion in the event that the WBC determines, in its sole discretion, that a holder of that recognition has brought dishonor upon the WBC or the sport of boxing. A Champion Emeritus may request an immediate challenge to a WBC World Champion in his 20 division without first boxing in an elimination contest, and if a mandatory challenger has previously been designated, the WBC may pursuant to Rule 3.8 order that the Champion Emeritus compete first for the title as an immediate mandatory challenger, but in any event, only upon the prior written approval of such status by the affirmative vote of the WBC Board of Governors, which may approve or deny such request in its sole discretion.

    Frank Warren could bung Wilder a couple of quid and we could end up with Joyce/Parker for the full belt. PPV Baby

    If Fury actually has retired then he should give up the belt with immediate effect.

    Fury stated that he is retired in an interview. WBC is well in there right to ask if its official, I see no issue with that.

    That said we all know they will make the vacant title fight with Wilder fighting one of the weakest opponents in there top 15 rankings.

    He would get what Vitali was given many years back

    He's not going to retire anyway, all part of the game....... he's just put a post on instagram saying he's happily retired but just finished a 4 mile run lol

    The WBC needs to chill out. He only fought 2 weeks ago. Should be given at least 3 months yet to decide.
