WBO STARTS THE CLOCK ON FURY'S TITLE REIGN
By Scott Shaffer

Days after world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury pulled out of his first title defense, a planned October 29th rematch with former champion Wladimir Klitschko, the WBO has given Fury ten days to provide medical evidence documenting the psychological condition that reportedly caused Fury to withdraw. If Fury fails to provide satisfactory documentation, the WBO will likely strip him of its title (Fury also holds the WBA super championship). Here is what the WBO instructed Fury on October 26th: "The WBO World Championship Committee will need to receive your Interim Certification within 10 calendar days of this letter, non-extendable. This information is needed for the Committee to evaluate your condition appropriately within the division and to consider your status consistent with our World Championship Rules." Should Fury be stripped by the WBO, the vacant title would likely be contested by Klitschko and undefeated Australian Joseph Parker. To read the full text of the WBO letter to Fury, click below.

A LESSON LEARNED FOR EDDIE HEARN: PART 2
By G. Leon

WBA would have to create third belt to make Hearns dreams come true

Ok, here we go again Eddie, lesson 2. After having people believe that a Klitschko vs. Joshua fight was in the works for November, we told you that Joshua couldn’t fight Klitschko for the IBF title since Klitschko wasn’t ranked by the IBF, and further reminded you that if Joshua wanted to keep his IBF title he would have to fight the highest available IBF heavyweight ranked fighter. Of course, as Boxingtalk detailed, if Joshua decided to give up his IBF title, he could fight Kltschko for the IBO title.

TONIGHT ON FOX SPORTS 1: PERRELLA VS. UGAS

Press Release: After a quick look at welterweight Bryant Perrella's record (1-0 with 13 KOs), you might surmise that he doesn't actually enjoy boxing. After all, the 27-year-old from Fort Myers, Florida, has put all but one of his opponents to sleep before the final bell, including the last 11 in a row. Perrella has wiped out nine of his foes - including the last three in a row - before the end of round two. Tonight on Fox Sports 1, the "Goodfella" is running up against the best counterpart of his career, someone who possesses slick boxing skills, a granite chin and an Olympic medal. Yordenis Ugas (16-3 with 7 KOs) won bronze for his native Cuba at the 2008 Beijing Games, then turned pro in mid-2010.  Ugas, a 30-year-old now based in Miami, took a 27-month sabbatical after dropping consecutive narrow decisions in 2014, but he returned on August 12th, dominating then-unbeaten Jamal James en route to a one-sided, ten-round unanimous decision.

A LESSON LEARNED FOR EDDIE HEARN; YOU CAN'T ALWAYS GET WHAT YOU WISH FOR
By G. Leon

To a great extent, whether you like it or not, whether you agree or disagree, the sanctioning bodies very much have the final say in moves you may want to make for Anthony Joshua or any championship caliber fighter for that matter. Case in point, the IBF shot you down when you inquired about having Joshua fight Klitschko. Let me give you a little education given you’re still learning the business. If you want Joshua to keep his IBF strap, he must defend his title against Joseph Parker, assuming Parker beats Dimitrenko this coming Saturday.
