Mauricio Sulaiman: No Klitschko-Stiverne…yet

WBC President Mauricio Sulaiman says WBA/IBF/WBO/IBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko will have to wait for unification clash against current champion Bermane Stiverne, because Stiverne must first face his mandatory challenger Deontay Wilder. “The agreements must be respected,” said Sulaiman in a statement on the WBC’s official website. “We made that decision at the last Convention and Deontay Wilder is the mandatory challenger. So Bermane Stiverne has to face him first.”
