Tyson Fury IS suspended from boxing after brutal defeat to Oleksandr Usyk

53

Tyson Fury will serve a one-week ban from boxing following his defeat to Oleksandr Usyk last weekend.

HOW IT HAPPENED

The Gypsy King suffered his first professional defeat at the hands of Oleksandr Usyk on Saturday in Saudi Arabia, losing split decision after the judges scored the bout 115-112, 113-114, 114-113.

THE FIRST BOXER TO UNIFY THE HEAVYWEIGHT DIVISION

It meant that Usyk became the first boxer since Lennox Lewis in 1999 to unify the heavyweight division after taking the WBC title off Fury, which was added to his WBA (Super), WBO, IBF and IBO titles.

DETAILS OF THE SUSPENSION

Fury was in big trouble on the ropes at one stage of the fight with many arguing that the referee could have stopped it.

He suffered some cuts and bruising from the brutal 12-round contest.  

This prompted why the UAE Boxing Commission gave him a rather meaningless one-week medical suspension which meant that he would not have been allowed to fight until this weekend.

Usyk, who had to be taken to hospital after the fight due to fears over a broken jaw, is also not allowed to compete until June 2.

WILL THERE BE A REMATCH BETWEEN FURY AND USYK?

Fury and Usyk look set to run it back later this year with promoter Frank Warren confirming his fighter’s intention to activate his rematch clause.

‘There will be a rematch,’ Warren said. ‘I think it will be better than the original fight.’

‘They both know each other, they’ve shared the ring and they’ll be looking to use what they’ve gained from the fight as an advantage to beat their opponent.’
