Sounds like they know they haven't got a leg to stand on legally, and possibly didn't want it.Finkel has responded to Arum’s comments :
“He’s entitled to his opinion, he can think anything he wants.”
“Deontay and I would like to have the next fight, as planned, against Fury.

Nah, just need the WBSS to get on the heavyweight division. Every tournament they've done has been fantastic. They've done 5, the list of the finals are Inoue vs Donaire, Briedis vs Dorticos, Prograis vs Taylor, Usyk vs Gassiev, and Smith vs Groves.WBC should sort a four man tournament, Ruiz Ortiz Wilder and winner of Pov-Whyte for the mando position in 2022.

Top 8 from BoxRec would beI still have memories of the ill-fated last attempt at a heavyweight tournament. Looked good on paper. Never got past first base.
There's no one in boxing with enough clout and money to make it happen though.Top 8 from BoxRec would be
That could be a pretty good tournament. Better than Joshua and Wilder not fighting and who knows what Fury is going to be doing.
