The President of the organization insists on a mandatory defense of the title.

WBO President Paco Valcárcel reacted to the news about the agreement of the British Champions in the heavyweight division Anthony Joshua and Tyson fury is two fights in 2021, Recalling that Joshua first have to spend a mandatory defense of the belt against Alexander Usik.

“I like the battle for the title of absolute champion in the heavyweight division between WBO champion Anthony Joshua and former WBO heavyweight champion Tyson fury, but the mandatory title defense of WBO should be next,” wrote Valcárcel on twitter.

So, if after a mandatory defence of the IBF title against Kubrat Pulev Joshua will not give the fight a mandatory contender for the WBO lines, Aleksandr Usik, then either Anthony will take the belt or Ukrainian will have to wait until 2022. Judging by the statements of Walkersele, more likely the first option.

Earlier, the promoter of the Mustache Alexander Krasyuk said he intends as soon as possible to organize the Mustache championship fight.
