Deontay Wilder has been handed a ban from boxing, but he is still expected to trigger a rematch clause with a third fight to take place before August.
The WBC heavyweight belt switched hands on Sunday as Fury delivered a masterclass in Las Vegas to beat Wilder by TKO in the seventh round.
The American was left bleeding from his ear, and reports soon emerged after the fight that Wilder had been taken to hospital with a burst eardrum.
Those claims have now been rubbished, and Wilder has been cleared to return to the ring as soon as April 23, with the Nevada State Athletic Commission allowing him to get back into full training from April 8.

That means that Wilder, who has a 28 day window in which to trigger his rematch clause, is now expected to do exactly that,
“The rematch is definitely going to happen,” the Bronze bomber said adamantly after losing.
“We're going to get it on. I want to get right back to it."
Fury said that he was expecting Wilder to demand a rematch, but insisted he wanted to step things up and take it to the Las Vegas Raiders’ Allegiant Stadium.

“I expect he [Wilder] will want a rematch and I will have that,” Fury admitted. “Great fights should have trilogies.
“And I want it here, just across the road, at the Raiders Stadium outdoors in front of 70,000.”
Wilder is expected to ditch trainer Mark Breland though, after he went against his fighter’s orders and threw in the towel, according to the man himself.
He said: “I am upset with Mark for the simple fact that we’ve talked about this many times and it’s not emotional.

“It is not an emotional thing, it’s a principal thing. We’ve talked about this situation many, many years before this even happened.
“I said as a warrior, as a champion, as a leader, as a ruler, I want to go out on my shield.
“If I’m talking about going in and killing a man, I respect the same way. I abide by the same principal of receiving.
“So I told my team to never, ever, no matter what it may look like, to never throw the towel in with me because I’m a special kind.
“I still had five rounds left. No matter what it looked like, I was still in the fight.”
