IBF strips Tyson Fury

Just weeks after dethroning the king of the division Wladimir Klitschko, newly crowned heavyweight champion Tyson Fury is learning first hand what it's like to have to many belts. The IBF has stripped Fury of the title due to the fact that Fury will not be facing his IBF mandatory Vyacheslav Glazkov. Fury is unable to face Glazkov immediately because he has to honor a rematch clause with Wladmir Klitschko.

The IBF has ordered that Glazkov take on Charles Martin (22-0-1, 20 KO's) for the vacant IBF title. Martin was supposed to fight Dominic Breazeale Saturday night but he will withdraw from the fight.
