Fury stripped of IBF title


World heavyweight champion Tyson Fury has beens stripped of his IBF title.

Fury defeated Wladimir Klitschko on points on November 28 to win the heavyweight crown and had been expected to fight the IBF's mandatory challenger Vyacheslav Glazkov.

However, Klitschko has taken up the rematch clause in the contract for last month's title fight in Dusseldorf and as a result Fury will fight the Ukrainian next.

His decision not to fight Glazkov means he has now been stripped of his IBF belt.

"It's true he's been stripped of his IBF belt," Lindsey Tucker, championships chairman at the IBF, told BBC Sport.

"Our challenger was Vyacheslav Glazkov, but instead Fury's gone and signed a rematch clause with Wladimir Klitschko."

Fury retains the WBA and WBO belts, while Deontay Wilder holds the WBC belt.
