Boxing Heavyweight champion, Tyson Fury has been stripped of his International Boxing Federation (IBF) crown less than two weeks after defeating Ukrainian Wladimir Klitschko to win four of the boxing world’s five heavyweight titles.
The Briton lost the IBF belt after it emerged that he had signed a contract with Klitschko for a rematch.
According to CNN report, the IBF contract for the fight in November stipulated that the winner would need to face Vyacheslav Glazkov as a mandatory challenger.
Glazkov will now face the American fighter Charles Martin for the vacant strap.
Fury ended the nine-year reign of Klitschko by claiming his four versions of the world heavyweight boxing title with a huge upset victory.
Fury won the bout in Dusseldorf, Germany in November on points 115-112, 115-112 and 116-111. Fury stands at 25-0 for his career.
