TYSON FURY’S team have reacted to the news that the IBF will strip him of their world heavyweight title should he fight Wladimir Klitschko next.

The IBF confirmed to Boxing News that their heavyweight title will become vacant if Fury faces Klitschko in a rematch, which looks all but confirmed.

Fury won the IBF belt – along with the WBA and WBO baubles – from Klitschko on Saturday and the Ukrainian has confirmed he will take advantage of his option to enforce an immediate rematch.
