Deontay Wilder has been given a six-month ban following his brutal beating at the hands of heavyweight champion Tyson Fury.
Wilder knocked down Fury twice before being dropped three times himself in an all-out-war, finally losing in the 11th round by knockout.
And the long list of injuries sustained by Wilder mean the Nevada State Athletic Commission has banned him from fighting again until at least April 8, ruling out the former champion for six months.
Wilder bled from his nose, ear and mouth as he sat in his corner at the end of the eighth round but was deemed fit to continue.
He was taken straight to hospital following the bout for scans on his head and hands.
Meanwhile, Fury is reported to have also been given a 45-day suspension due to the ruthless nature of the fight.
The WBC champion returned to the UK on Tuesday where he was spotted at Heathrow airport queuing at passport control.
