Tyson Fury And Deontay Wilder's Final Drug Test Results Following Fight Confirmed
The World Boxing Council (WBC) have confirmed Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder have passed all their drug tests in the wake of last month's fight.
The Voluntary Anti-Doping Association [VADA] carried out the tests after Fury's seventh round TKO victory over the 'Bronze Bomber'.
It was confirmed in a WBC statement which read: "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."
Wilder has activated his rematch clause with the 'Gypsy King' and their third fight will take place in July.
It could cap off a rivalry which extends back to December 2018 with the first fight ending in a draw.
Many boxing fans are looking past the trilogy bout and focusing on a potential title unification fight between Fury and Anthony Joshua.
The battle of the Brits is tipped for the end of this year should Fury get past Wilder and 'AJ' through mandatory challenger Kubrat Pulev.
Joshua's promoter Eddie Hearn has stated he is keen to organise a fight but some have stated it the claims are being used to boost Joshua's public image.
When asked if he'd spoken to Top Rank Boxing's Bob Arum, a defiant Hearn told iFL TV:

"Of course I f***ing have.
Firstly, I've been negotiating the [Kubrat] Pulev fight with him. How many times have I spoken to Bob Arum in the last three weeks? Half a dozen, a dozen.
"How many times have I spoken to Arum since the Fury fight? Four times.
"Of course I've spoken to Bob Arum. Do you think Bob's not going to call me and talk about it?"
Arum on the other hand thinks that a fight won't be happening as he predicts Pulev will defeat Joshua in June.
Take it to the bank. There won't be an Anthony Joshua after June 20," he told ESPN.
"Anthony Joshua is getting knocked out. Listen, Anthony Joshua is getting knocked out, June 20 at Tottenham Stadium in London by my guy Kubrat Pulev."
Do you think Joshua and Fury will ever face off?
