Tyson Fury has been handed a medical suspension following his sensational victory over Deontay Wilder.
The Wythenshawe warrior retained his WBC heavyweight title in an epic Las Vegas trilogy fight courtesy of a stunning 11th-round knockout.
But the former lineal heavyweight champ had to battle through adversity to register his first-ever title defence.
Fury, 33, was dropped twice in the fourth round and took several more of Wilder’s devastating right hands in the ensuing rounds.
And as a precaution, the Nevada State Athletic Commission have given him a standard 45-day suspension.
Former WBC champ Wilder, meanwhile, has been handed a six-month suspension by the NSAC.
Meanwhile, Frank Warren wants Anthony Joshua to ditch his rematch against Oleksandr Usyk so Fury can fight the Ukrainian in an undisputed blockbuster.
He told TalkSport: “If AJ was to step aside and let us get the Usyk fight on, maybe he could fight the winner?
“Usyk has got a rematch clause with AJ, that’s no secret. If AJ wants to step aside then I’m sure we can easily make that fight, but will he step aside? I doubt it! Maybe he will, I don’t know.
“From our perspective, we would love to do that fight, but if we can’t and Tyson wants to keep boxing, he’ll have to defend his title, if he doesn’t want to keep boxing, so be it.”
Finally, David Haye has called out Fury for a fight AGAIN and says he’ll only return to boxing to face the ‘No1 heavyweight on the planet’.
He told iFL TV: “I’m 100 per cent serious. I’ve said that the only person I’d put my body through a come back for would be for the number one heavyweight on the planet.
“There’s no reason why I’d punish myself and do what I need to do to put myself in a position to give myself any type of chance if it isn’t for the big one.
“It doesn’t get any bigger than that. I’d be like a 1000/1 underdog, for good reason.”
