TYSON FURY has been urged by Deontay Wilder’s trainer to strip him of his world title over rumors of a fight against Francis Ngannou.
Fury and Ngannou are expected to announce their crossover duel this week, which is believed to be just a show.
It has infuriated Wilder’s trainer Malik Scott, demanding that the WBC take away their prestigious title from the heavyweight champion.
Scott told ESNEWS: “Let Deontay and [Andy] Ruiz fights for the WBC, man.
“Let’s do something that really makes sense and helps the sport. All this damn waiting, so now we have to wait for Fury and Ngannou to fight.”
“Another year. All that shit just keeps the heavyweight class going, man.”
Fury, 34, fell through in talks over a fight against Oleksandr Usyk, 36, this year in what would have been the first four-belt unification in heavyweight history.
Now Usyk will defend his unified title against mandatory challenger Daniel Dubois, 25, in Poland on August 26.
Meanwhile, Anthony Joshua, 33, returns in a rematch against Dillian Whyte, 35, on August 12.
And a superfight with Wilder is due in Saudi Arabia in December, with Fury disappearing from the picture.

So the Gypsy King turned his attention to Ngannou, who paved the way for a boxing change after his departure from the UFC.
Wilder is waiting to fight AJ in the Middle East but sent 33-year-old Ruiz an offer for a fight to return first.
But the American accused his rival of rejecting their deals.
Scott added, “They turn down offers, they overestimate themselves. That means they don’t want the fight.”
Team Wilder will be on to bigger and better things looking for the biggest fight possible for Deontay anyway and we know what we have planned for December but before that I want Deontay to fight again.”
