Tyson Fury Still Waiting on Date For Anti-Doping Hearing

Former IBF, WBA, IBO, WBO heavyweight champion Tyson Fury (25-0, 18 KOs) is still waiting to get a date for his anti-doping hearing.

Last June, UK Anti-Doping [UKAD] charged that Fury had tested positive for a banned substance in early 2015.

The UKAD hearing began in May, but it was adjourned and there is still no date for the hearing to resume.


The British Boxing Board of Control is waiting for UKAD to advise them of the new hearing date.

"UKAD are acting on behalf of [the British Boxing Board of Control] - there's an independent panel that hear [the case]," BBBofC general secretary Robert Smith said to Sky Sports. "We're waiting for the independent panel to advise us [when to resume]."

Fury has been out of the ring for nearly two years.

He last fought in November of 2015, when he shocked the world by winning a twelve round unanimous decision over Wladimir Klitschko to capture the unified heavyweight crown.

There were two rematch dates set, and Fury withdrew from both. After the second canceled date, Fury admitted that he was dealing with mental health issues and also struggling with substance abuse. He vacated his three remaining world titles and the British Board pulled his boxing license. Fury is unable to recover his license, until the outcome of the UKAD heading.

His IBF title was captured by Charles Martin and later by Anthony Joshua. The WBO title is now held by Joseph Parker, and the WBA/IBO belts are also held by Joshua - who stopped Klitschko back in April before a crowd of 90,000 at Wembley.

Fury has dropped hints about the possibility of retiring, but there are also statements from his uncle and head trainer, Peter Fury, who expects his nephew to return to the ring.

Joshua vs. Fury is still the biggest fight to be made in the UK - if and when Fury can regain his boxing license to get the wheels rolling on his career.

[QUOTE=Ulver;18009924]I thought Tyson Fury is retired? If he is, it's a moot point anyway. If he tries to come back they can suspend him.[/QUOTE] Not just Tyson though its his stable mate and cousin who was caught using the performance…

[QUOTE=keith_head;18008465]And Hughie Fury? If I recall correctly, he also tested positive around the same time. The silence is deafening.[/QUOTE] Swept under the rug.
