Tyson Fury To Regain His License To Box From BBBoC

By Elliot Foster

Tyson Fury has had the suspension lifted on his British Boxing Board of Control licence.

The 29-year-old former world heavyweight champion had been out of the ring since dethroning Wladimir Klitschko in Germany back in November 2015 to become the WBA Super, IBO, IBF and WBO king.

Fury also holds the Ring Magazine crown and has committed to returning to the ring in April.


The April 21 card at the SSE Arena in Belfast, topped by Carl Frampton’s showdown against former four-time world champion Nonito Donaire, has been mentioned as a potential return date for Fury.

A statement released by the Board of Control on Friday stated that the suspension of his licence will be lifted “subject to receipt and clearance of all medical requirements.”

Frank Warren applied for Fury’s licence on his behalf, after the former British and Commonwealth champion was handed a backdated ban by the UK Anti-Doping Agency and cleared to box, and Fury was told that his suspension would be lifted following an interview at the Board’s offices in Cardiff.

On Thursday, Fury posted on social media: "Working really hard & putting in the sacrifice needed to achieve glory. Along with the sunshine there has to be a little rain sometimes! There will be no victory without pain."

Fury lost his IBF title almost as quick as he won it, for failing to make a mandatory defense against Czar Glazkov. He was unable to defend due to a rematch clause with Klitschko. The rematch had two dates which saw Fury withdraw. And then eventually the 'Gypsey King' vacated his remaining belts to focus on his failing mental health.

The British Board took away his license to box after Fury tested positive for cocaine and admitted to having a problem with alcohol and recreational drug use.

Further details regarding Fury’s return will be revealed in due course.

Congrats to Fury. Great news for HW boxing, now it is time Fury loses all that fat in his gut...its a shame defeating Wlad made him unstable, hence losing the belts so easily. I hope another big win wudnt take…
