    Default Have The WBA Just stripped Fury too? Look at this!!

    WBA announces heavyweight tournament | Boxing News | Fightnews

    To me it seems as though there is now no true champion until this tournament is completed. I get the whole only wanting one champ part, but to strip Fury is a complete farce!! Maybe I'm missing something but that's how it seems to me!!

    I don't think they've stripped him, they just have the stupid two belts at heavyweight, maybe they are planning on doing away with the one chagaev has before they re split them again in a couple months :S...

    Like the look of ortiz being on the same side of the tournament as fury/wladimir.

    Yes he wants to ditch the 'Regular' and 'Interim' straps but surely they could just take them, take Fury and Klit out of the tournament and have the winner face the winner of the tournament?

    I just don't see how Fury could honour this tournament and his mandatory for WBO too. If he hasn't already I've got a feeling this only ends with Fury losing another belt, even if he beats Klitschko again.

    Don't think they'll strip him but the winner will have to jump through a few hoops to be deemed "real" champ, which is really just an opportunity to collect a boat load of sanctioning fees. They should keep it simple enough and go straight to Oquendo-Chagaev rematch, only this time keep the Chechen President out of his corner FFS. Ortiz has already won not one but three interim title fights and be great if he gets Fury-Wlad winner.

    I think the WBA have clearly established themself as the worst of the whole lot, they have 3 champions in some cases. Mind you as the belts don't affect us at all, anything that makes big fights more likely to happen is great. I think Luis Ortiz would spark Fury, fun fun fight though.

    It's because a U.S. court has demanded that after being banned for drugs Fres Oquendo MUST be involved! WTF that is about I'll never know. Wouldn't be surprised to see Haye now offer him big money to fight and try and get himself involved in the tournament. Looks as though Hearn is steering Joshua well away from Haye at the minute.

    Oquendo is garbage and shouldn't be anywhere near even a discussion about a HW belt.

    What a load of bollocks. They create a diabolical mess handing out muti belts per division then decide it needs cleaning up. So if Fury - who is THE champ regardless of what shitty alphabet he has - beats Wlad yet doesn't face the winner of Ortiz-Ustinov (which will be Ortiz) they'll strip him.

    Meanwhile in the other half Fres 'funking' Oquendo is sitting there with a bye waiting for the winner of a couple of plodders.

    Fury should bin the belt.

    Yeah, but the fact is , just like Brook, he needs the Belts.
    I wouldn't put it past him binning the belt, but it would be a bad career move. If Fury doesn't have the belts, a lot of the money men in Boxing will just ignore him. That would be just the excuse they need. Sometimes, you just have to suck up all the bullshit.
    Very few Boxers can dictate things without belts.

    He's still got the WBO. And everyone in boxing - publications/media/TV - knows he's THE champ.

    The WBA are saying they'll strip him if he doesn't follow their tournament. He's not gonna fight Ortiz if a massive money fight with the likes of Wilder or Haye or AJ can happen. Those fights are worth a billion times more than an Ortiz fight.

    So the WBA have engineered a way for two confirmed drug cheats to potentially clash in the final of a tournament designed to clean things up?

    Fury's next fight maybe one to regain a belt he's been stripped of hell the guy has had a job done on him
    for sure, Vit and Wlad were injured for a age and never got stripped something stinks.
