    Tyson Fury: World heavyweight champion stripped of IBF title

    [​IMG]
    Tyson Fury now holds just two versions of the world heavyweight title after being stripped of the IBF belt
    World heavyweight champion Tyson Fury has been stripped of his IBF title less than two weeks after winning it.

    The Briton, 27, had to agree to fight the IBF's mandatory challenger Vyacheslav Glazkov but will instead face Wladimir Klitschko in a rematch.

    Fury beat Ukrainian Klitschko on points on 28 November to claim three versions of the heavyweight crown.

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

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

    Fury, who is unbeaten in 25 professional contests, retains the WBA and WBO versions of the heavyweight title, while the WBC belt is held by American Deontay Wilder.

    The 31-year-old Glazkov, also a Ukrainian, has won 21 of his 22 professional fights.

    The contract for last month's title fight in Dusseldorf included a clause for a rematch, for which the date and the venue have to be decided, and Klitschko - who had been world champion for 11 years - announced last week he would take up the option.

    Fury has been at the centre of controversy after his comments about women and gay people sparked a petition calling for his removal from the BBC's Sports Personality of the Year (SPOTY) shortlist.

    The Manchester fighter has been quoted as saying a woman's "best place is on her back" and has criticised homosexuality and abortion.

    He subsequently said: "Tyson Fury loves his fellow humans. He doesn't hate anybody."

    The BBC said Fury's inclusion did not mean SPOTY endorsed his personal views.

    I'm sure there was a lot of money in Yacheslav Glazkov Vs Fury

    Dude followed the money. Simple as that. Probably the smart thing to do.

    Very boring fight even by heavyweight standards. He took Klitch by unanimous decision, I couldn't watch enough of the fight to tell if he did what he needed to take the title away.

    What would @LawyerLarry do to unify the World Heavyweight Boxing Titles? After all, WWE unified their world titles. Also, may I be the ring announcer? I can send you a sizzle reel of my work. I pop, Howard Finkle-style, when proclaiming a NNNEWWW champion! Holy hell. I think I've been bitten by the Larry, Inc. big. It's a Larrymas miracle!

    After watching that Klitschko/Fury fight a couple weeks ago, Double L is confident that he could defeat them both at the same time in a handicap match.

    I'm barely a casual boxing fan. What the hell do the "versions" really mean? Just another way to stir up controversy?

    I couldn't pick the different major boxing alliances out of a line up...and don't give a shit either.

    That was a horrible fight to watch. Two guys who didn't want to hit each other. And Fury makes so many goofy faces that it's hard to take him seriously. He needs to have his lights turned out.

    They offered @LawyerLarry tge belt but he turned it down because to expect it would mean he is a man and not a god. @ClintDagger was offered the belt but His face is his money maker so he can't risk some journeymen getting a lucky shot in on his face. @tradioguy69 is to busy enforceing the rules of Larrymas to break any other faces at this moment. @MrPPV is the youngest member of Larry inc. and has far to bright of a future to step in the ring. @ShutUpSitDown has built a robot to enter but than seems to be against the rules. @EDDIEVRULZ and I drink far to much for the mandatory dates. Also just in time for Larrymas we are releaseing a knock em sock em @Joeyjoejoe great gift for the kids.
