Tyson Fury Can Resume Career
Former heavyweight champion Tyson Fury is free to return to the ring after accepting a backdated two year ban from UK Anti-Doping. Fury hasn’t fought since his victory over Wladimir Klitschko in November 2015.
After he missed his hearing on Monday he was able to accept the pre-negotiated deal with UKAD. Now he only has to re-apply for his license with the British Boxing Board, who have previously stated he couldn’t do until a resolution to his problems with the UKAD was finalized.
In a statement, UKAD said: “UKAD, Tyson Fury and Hughie Fury have agreed to resolve proceedings brought by UKAD against Tyson Fury and Hughie Fury based on the reported presence of elevated levels of nandrolone metabolites in urine samples that they provided after their respective fights in February 2015; and against Tyson Fury based on his alleged failure to provide a sample in September 2016.”
Fury didn’t waste no time coming after WBA and IBF Champion Anthony Joshua on social media after the decision was announced:
@anthonyfjoshua where you at boy? I'm coming for you punk ent no1 blocking my path now!??
