Deontay Wilder has been handed a six-month suspension after a brutal beating at the hands of Tyson Fury.
The American slugger was demolished by Britain and finally KOd in the eleventh round over the weekend.
This came after the Fight of the Century between the pair with five knockdowns at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
But Wilder has now been banned from returning to the ring until April next year at the earliest.
The 41-2-1 heavyweight was shot down three times during a savage fight in front of a packed crowd.
After the match, he was taken straight to the hospital for head and arm scans.
SunSport exclusively revealed last night how he broke an arm in the fight and will have surgery next week.
He also broke his finger and knuckles while punching Fury, as well as damaging his face.
And the Nevada State Athletic Commission will no longer allow him to fight again until April 8.
He has to be medically cleared by a doctor in order to be back in the ring again.
It is understood that Fury has been given a 45-day suspension after the classic heavyweight competition.
This ultimately ended an epic trilogy of fights over three years, none of which disappointed fans.
