Usyk is the absolute heavyweight champion

The absolute world heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk (22-0, 14 KOs) cannot be deprived of his status until July 2 this year. This is the day when our compatriot's medical suspension from training and fighting after his victory over Tyson Fury (34-1-1, 24 KOs) ends.

This is stated by the British tabloid The Sun, calling this situation a little-known rule. According to the journalists, there is no way that the International Boxing Federation (IBF) can take away Usyk's title to put it on the line for the fight between Filip Hrgovic (17-0, 14 KOs) and Daniel Dubois (20-2, 19 KOs) on June 1.
