Tyson Fury has been the heavyweight champion of the world for less than a week.

But, already one of the big organisations, the IBF, is getting heavy and talking about Tyson making a mandatory defence.

It seems the IBF are set to order Tyson Fury to face their mandatory challenger Vyacheslav Glazkov.

Now normally a period is allowed for both camps to negotiate and come to an agreement over the fight but on this occasion Vyacheslav Glazkov camp have pushed straight to the purse bid stage, with purse bids to be submitted by 11th December.

Now whether the IBF are trying it on and would be prepared to strip Tyson of the IBF belt if he doesn?t comply, remains to be seen.

But it seems that as far as the Tyson camp are concerned, they have their own agenda with Peter Fury remarking,

?This Glazkov, whoever he is, will just have to get in line with everyone else.

?We?ve got a re-match clause with Klitschko and that is paramount for us. The rough plan for 2016 is to get that rematch out of the way and then look for a unification fight with Wilder. I think apart from a re-match with Klitschko, Wilder is the biggest fight out there for us. Then we will deal with the mandatories.?
