WBC President discusses future of Manny Pacquiao and Deontay Wilder

World Boxing Council President Mauricio Sulaiman has discussed the future of boxing stars and former champions Manny Pacquiao and Deontay Wilder.

The WBC head appeared on the Ak and Barak Show for his monthly update, airing his views on Pacquiao and Wilder.

Both Pacquiao and Wilder have been the subject of much discussion surrounding their future.

Senator Pacquiao has a money-spinning fight with Terence Crawford in the news. While there is speculation, Wilder could fight Tyson Fury for the third time.

According to rumors, if things don’t go his way in ongoing arbitration with Fury over their contracted bout, Wilder may consider retirement.

Also addressed was Dillian Whyte’s situation, plus current champion Fury and his ultimate goal for boxing.

Tournaments featuring the top stars could be a critical factor in the enhancement of the sport moving forward.

Sulaiman talked about both these matters for Sirius XM. Listen to the interview in full on the Sirius XM App or DAZN.
