Usyk relinquishes the IBF belt and sets off an epic fight between Dubois and Joshua

Attention boxing fans: news that will make every corner of the ring vibrate. Get ready for an exciting, adrenaline-filled story!

Usyk loses one of his belts: the absolute heavyweight champion resigns from the IBF

In a dramatic turn of events, Oleksandr Usyk , who just a month ago established himself as unified champion , has vacated the International Boxing Federation (IBF) belt . The reason, dear fans, is that Usyk has chosen not to accept the mandatory fight against challenger Daniel Dubois , since he has agreed to a rematch with the feared Tyson Fury .

A brief but memorable reign

Let's remember that epic moment when Usyk defeated Fury and became the absolute heavyweight champion . It was an unforgettable May night, when after 25 long years of waiting, boxing finally saw a new undisputed champion . We haven't seen anything like this since Lennox Lewis clinched all the belts in 1999.

Usyk, with an impressive record of 22 victories , 14 of them by KO, achieved the unthinkable. In a fierce battle , he took the victory by split decision with scores of 115-112 and 114-113 in his favor, while one judge saw the fight in favor of Fury with a 114-113.

The champion's crossroads

But how fast is the wheel of destiny! Just 38 days later, Usyk is no longer the absolute champion . The IBF had ordered him to defend his title against Daniel Dubois . However, with a rematch against Fury on the horizon, Usyk decided to vacate his IBF title.

New opportunities on the horizon

And this is where it gets interesting. With the IBF title now vacant, the door opens for a spectacular fight between two British giants: Daniel Dubois and Anthony Joshua . This confrontation already has a date and place: September 21 at the iconic Wembley Stadium . What a generous gift from Usyk to boxing fans! Usyk himself announced it on his social networks: "Anthony and Daniel, listen, I know the IBF title is important to you. My gift to you, September 21."

Preparing the revenge of the year

Meanwhile, Ukrainian Usyk is preparing for another epic battle against Fury on December 21 in Riyadh . This time, however, there won't be four belts at stake. Only the titles of the World Boxing Council (WBC) , the World Boxing Association (WBA) and the World Boxing Organization (WBO) will be in dispute.

So, although he will no longer be the undisputed champion , no one can deny that Usyk has left his mark as the last unified heavyweight champion .


What exciting times we live in in the world of boxing! With Usyk , Fury , Joshua and Dubois all in the mix, the next few months promise to be a rollercoaster of emotions. Stay tuned, because the heavyweight story is far from over. See you in the ring!
