Fury lost to Usyk

The absolute world heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk (22-0, 14 KOs) will not be able to train and fight in the next month and a half. Our compatriot was suspended from boxing after the fight with Tyson Fury (34-1-1, 24 KOs), in which he won all the belts in the division.

The decision was made by the British Boxing Board of Control, according to the authoritative BoxRec portal. Usyk has been suspended from the sport until July 2, and his license has been suspended. The reasons for this step are unknown, but it is clear that they are related to the injuries that our compatriot received in the fight on May 18.
