IBF orders Fury-Glazkov

Newly crowned heavyweight champion Tyson Fury (25-0, 18 KO's) isn't going to have much time to enjoy his victory. Just days after defeating the heavyweight king Wladimir Klitschko the IBF has ordered that Fury take on Vyacheslav Glazkov (21-0-1, 13 KO's). Fury has 30 days to reach an agreement with Glazkov before the fight is sent to a purse bid.

Fury attained the IBF, WBA, and WBO belts from Klitschko. It's highly unlikely he'll be able to keep all three as he continues to fight. His main decision will come at deciding who he wants to face next. Klitschko does have a rematch clause however it remains to be seen if he exercises it following a lopsided defeat. Fury also wants to fight someone before facing Klitschko again. He could fight Glazkov next, and Klitschko after however Glazkov is probably not a big crowd or money fight. He may end up vacating the IBF title for a bigger fight.
