Tyson Fury to be stripped of all boxing titles: UK boxing promoter Eddie Hearn

News Agencies | Updated on: 26 September 2016, 13:36 IST

UK's leading boxing promoter Eddie Hearn has said that Tyson Fury will be stripped of his world heavyweight titles, as his return to the ring is doubtful.

According to Hearn, governing bodies the WBA and the WBO are entitled to take away Fury's belts because he postponed his rematch with Wladimir Klitschko for the second time citing mental health reasons.

"I don't believe he will fight again," the Matchroom boxing chief told the Mirror. "I believe Tyson Fury will be stripped of all his titles," he said.

28-year-old Fury, who defeated Klitschko last November to bag the WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO titles, had earlier rescheduled the rematch from the original July date to 29 October.

Within two weeks of his victory, he was stripped of the IBF world heavyweight championship belt after he declined to face mandatory title challenger Vyacheslav Glazkov.

Hearn also took potshots at Fury's team for not looking after the world heavyweight champion properly.
