The IBF has deprived Tyson Fury of his nature heavyweight title on account of his failure to defend the belt against its obligatory challenger, Vyacheslav Glazkov
The IBF has stripped Tyson Fury of his world heavyweight title on account of his failure to defend the loop against the mandatory challenger, Vyacheslav Glazkov, instead choosing a rematch with Wladimir Klitschko, whom the Briton beat on 28 November.
Its true-life hes been deprived of his IBF belt, the IBFs championships chairwoman, Lindsey Tucker, told the BBC. Our challenger was Vyacheslav Glazkov but instead Furys run and signed a rematch clause with Wladimir Klitschko.
There was a clause in the contract for last-place months opposed in Dusseldorf that held Klitschko the right to a rematch if he was demolished and last week he substantiated he required the opportunity to prevail the loops back.
Fury retains the WBA, WBO and IBO heavyweight entitles, while the WBC belt is held by the American Deontay Wilder. No time or venue has been set for Furys defence against Klitschko but the decision is likely to increase the chance of Anthony Joshua, who are struggling Dillian Whyte this Saturday, becoming a No1 contender next year.
