UK's Anti-Doping Allows Tyson Fury to Resume Boxing Career

Tyson Furry calls out Anthony Joshua after being cleared to return to boxing Tyson Fury must prove he is mentally and physically fit to fight Anthony Joshua and others in the heavyweight division when British Boxing meet to review suspension in January

Fury is thought to be considering a comeback fight against the likes of David Price or Shannon Briggs for his first fight back by what then will be almost two and a half years.

Hughie Fury, Tyson's cousin, has reached a similar agreement after he also tested positive in February 2015.

"Gypsy King" Fury had received a two-year ban from UKAD after testing positive for a banned steroid in 2015.

Both men were not charged until June 2016 and both continue to insist they have "never knowingly or deliberately committed a violation".

Tyson Fury could have his boxing licence reinstated when the British boxing Board of Control (BBBofC) meets next month, a move that would allow the controversial fighter to make a dramatic return to the ring. They said they were willing to come to a compromise agreement with UKAD.

Tyson Fury will need to prove his physical and mental wellbeing before regaining his licence to fight after the British Boxing Board of Control confirmed on Wednesday that they will review his suspension next month.

Do you agree with that last statement? The legislation faces an uncertain future in the Senate. We wouldn't recommend holding your breathe in hopes of a quick ruling, however.

"I'm a fighting man through and through and I've never backed down from anyone in my life and I was certainly not going to back down from fighting this dispute", said the Manchester fighter, who hails from the traveller community.

Fury posted a video of himself singing to the 1990s Eminem song, Without Me, but changed the lyrics to parody the British Boxing Board of Control (BBBofC) and ended with an obscene gesture and an expletive aimed at promoter Eddie Hearn.

A separate charge against Tyson Fury for refusing to take a drug test in September 2016 was withdrawn by UKAD.

Fury immediately laid down a challenge to compatriot Anthony Joshua, who successfully defended his IBF and WBA titles against Carlos Takam in October.

WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder says he would welcome Tyson Fury back to the ring and would want to fight him - once the Briton is fit enough. "Next year I will be back doing what I do best, better than ever and ready to reclaim the world titles which are rightfully mine".

If Fury, who is unbeaten, were to get his license back, then take on and defeat Parker, for example, it would put him in a strong position to negotiate a huge money-spinning clash with Joshua next summer.
