Tyson Fury UKAD Hearing Starts Monday, Facing 4 Year Ban

Tyson Fury's hearing relating to his suspended drugs ban will begin next Monday and may last for several days.

Last month it was revealed by the former heavyweight champion's promoter, Hennessy Sports, that the delayed appointment with UK Anti Doping [UKAD] month.

Fury - inactive for two years - and cousin Hughie were charged in 2016 after testing positive for a banned substance.


But the boxer's attempt to clear his name has become a drawn-out affair, with Fury denying claims by British Boxing Board of Control general secretary Robert Smith that the fighter was responsible for the delay.

Fury has gone in and out of retirement since his defining win over Wladimir Klitschko, while also opening up on his struggles with depression and drugs.

He is currently determined to be back in 2018, though, with British rival, world champion Anthony Joshua, in his sights, and has been sharing footage online of his return to training. Fury has been shaving off the weight while training with friend and former world champion Ricky Hatton, who believes the heavyweight can bounce back strong.

There is some heavy concern, because he's facing a 4 year ban in the hearing with UKAD. Fury has also been charged with failure to provide a sample in September last year. He must get through the hearing in one piece in order to reclaim his license to box.

The 29-year-old was last seen in the back in November, when he traveled over to Germany to shock Wladimir Klitschko for the WBA, IBF, WBO, IBO world titles.

After that win, Fury lost his IBF title for failure to make a mandatory defense against Czar Glazkov. Then he dropped the IBF, IBO, WBA titles to focus on his mental health, and then lost his boxing license after admitting to the British Board that he was abusing recreational drugs and alcohol. He had tested positive for cocaine.

Think the article is actually misleading... from what i've read Fury is facing [B]up to[/B] a 4 year ban if found guilty. They could equally just ban him for 1 year.

Fury is a mess: Mental illness, drug and alcohol abuse, popped for Nandrolone, refusing a UKAD drug test and cursing them out, fat as hell. And his mouth has obviously rubbed someone in authority of his career the wrong way.…

[QUOTE=boliodogs;18308935]Yes it's a joke. Just fine him if they must. To ban a boxer for 4 years in his prime ruins him both mentally and physically. They are taking away his way of making a living and everything he has…
