No Show No Big Deal?
Yesterday 3KingsBoxing.com reported that former heavyweight champion Tyson Fury did not show up for his scheduled hearing with the UKAD. This came as a surprise to most boxing fans after all the recent social media pandering Fury has done talking about a comeback.
Fury has been out of the ring for over two years since beating Wladimir Klitschko in November 2015 due to both personal issues as well as his suspension by the UKAD. His license was suspended by the British Boxing Board of Control has well.
Fury who hasn’t responded to questions about not showing up for his hearing did however take to Instagram yesterday posting a video of himself singing like he didn’t have a care in the world. Apparently his presence at the meeting wasn’t required because his promoter Hennessy Sports tweeted this earlier today.
To be clear Tyson Fury was not required to be at the UKAD hearing yesterday.

Fury had said over the weekend to Sky Sports:
“Hopefully they will do the right thing. I want to get back out there. I know what the outcome should be.
“End of April, early May. I will be ready by that time, fit and strong. The training plan is set up, so I will be ready by then.”
It’s likely that his evidence was therefore submitted in writing, with only his representatives actually present in the room for the five-day hearing.
