The newly crowned WBO
and WBA light heavyweight
champion is also furious at being forced to fight TWICE within 45 days.
A court ruling has allowed No. 1 challenger William Guthrie to demand a championship fight before July 19th.
Now Michalczewski - the first man in history to own all three belts at his weight - has threatened to abandon the IBF title.
The Polish-born German's promoter Klaus-Peter Kohl said: "Guthrie is Don King's man and we don't want to do any business with him."
Kohl has said he is hoping an arrangement on juggling title defences can be worked out with the WBO and WBA.
Undefeated WBO champion Michalczewski won the IBF and WBA crowns after destroying Virgil Hill in a 12- round thriller on Friday night.
Michalczewski, who has 28 knockouts to his credit and 34 straight victories, pounded Hill from the third round.
And in the end succeeded in pulling off one of boxings greatest upsets with a unanimous decision.
North Dakota fighter Hill was left gutted with the shock defeat - only the second of his career.
His last defeat was to Thomas Hearns SIX years ago.
