WERE the lineal heavyweight championship an actual belt with rankings, there would be calls for it to be stripped from Tyson Fury if a potential fight against former IBF titleholder Charles Martin in September becomes a reality.

However, because it isn’t an actual belt, and because there aren’t rankings, Fury can essentially do as he pleases and fight whoever he fancies fighting. This freedom, according to his US promoter Bob Arum, could lead to Martin, an American finished inside two rounds by Anthony Joshua three years ago, get the nod ahead of other more viable contenders.
