The World Boxing Council (WBC) have released the drug test results for Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder after the pair’s bout last month.
The Voluntary Anti-Doping Association [VADA] carried out the tests, which were regulated by the WBC’s Clean Boxing Program.
And now the results have been confirmed after Fury produced a stunning display to beat the Bronze Bomber by TKO in the seventh round and claim the WBC heavyweight title.
Both fighters passed all their tests, with the WBC confirming in a statement that: “World Boxing Council heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, and Deontay Wilder, came out clean in the doping tests conducted by the Voluntary Anti-Doping Association as part of the successful Clean Boxing Program.
“We want to thank both warriors and their respective teams for their willingness to sign up for the Clean Boxing Program and demonstrate that they are both exemplary athletes, who testify to their honesty and commitment to boxing.”
Fury will now face Wilder in a trilogy fight in July after the American activated a contract clause to extend his rivalry with the Gypsy King to a third bout.
The first fight between the two heavyweights ended in a sensational draw in December 2018 before Fury forced Wilder’s corner to throw in the towel during the rematch last month.
If Fury wins the third fight this summer, he could be in line for a unification super-fight with Anthony Joshua to determine the undisputed heavyweight champion.
With Fury wearing WBC gold and AJ boasting the other three major belts – the WBA, WBO and IBF – the fight would be one of the biggest heavyweight bouts ever.
However, Joshua also has a summer fight planned. The Brit will face Bulgarian Kubrat Pulev at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on 20 June – so a proposed fight with Fury at the end of the year is likely to be dependant on both men coming through the summer victorious.
