Fury To Joshua: Where You at Boy? No One Blocking My Path Now!

Tyson Fury (25-0, 18 KOs) wasted no time in calling out heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua after agreeing a resolution with United Kingdom Anti-Doping (UKAD).

UKAD on Tuesday announced it had agreed to bring an end to proceedings against Fury, who had his licence revoked in October 2016 amid allegations of anti-doping violations.

A two-year period of ineligibility has been backdated to match a provisional suspension imposed on the 29-year-old and will be lifted this week.


Should Fury regain his licence from the British Boxing Board of Control, he is likely to target a bout with Anthony Joshua, who this year followed his compatriot's November 2015 example by defeating Wladimir Klitschko.

Despite gaining a significant amount of weight during his hiatus, Fury has regularly goaded would-be opponent Joshua on social media and did so again on Tuesday.

In a Twitter post directed at Joshua, Fury wrote: "where you at boy? I'm coming for you punk and no one blocking my path now!"

The Briton stunned  Klitschko in Dusseldorf in November 2015 to win the WBA (Super), WBO, IBF, IBO belts.

Fury had his licence revoked by the British Boxing Board of Control (BBBofC) in October 2016 after allegations of anti-doping violations were made against him.

UKAD's proceedings against Fury were based on the reported presence of elevated levels of nandrolone metabolites in urine samples provided after a fight in February 2015 and an alleged failure to provide a sample in September 2016.

Fury claimed he had never knowingly or deliberately committed an anti-doping rule violation and on Tuesday a UKAD statement read: "In recognition of the respective counter-arguments and the risks inherent in the dispute resolution process, each side has accepted a compromise of its position."

According to UKAD, rule violations based on the reported presence of elevated levels of nandrolone metabolites have been upheld, but proceedings have been resolved on the basis that Fury has received a two-year period of ineligibility. His results from a fight against Christian Hammer in February 2015 have been disqualified.

However, given the provisional suspension Fury has already served, his period of ineligibility has been backdated to December 13, 2015 and will be lifted this week.

According to UKAD, the BBBofC has also agreed to the resolution, although the governing body is yet to comment on the potential reinstatement of Fury's licence.
