Former world heavyweight champ missed a listening to in London that had been scheduled for 9am
TYSON FURY was NOT required at a UK Anti-Doping listening to on Monday, his promotional group has claimed.
Hennessey Sports activities launched a quick assertion on social media after the previous world heavyweight champ sparked fear amongst his followers together with his no-show in London.
However Fury’s promo group has mentioned it was a misunderstanding.
They wrote: “Expensive all, to be clear Tyson Fury was not required to be on the UKAD listening to yesterday.”
In a prolonged assertion on their web site, in addition they mentioned British Boxing Board of Management basic secretary Robert Smith was “incorrect” and “haven’t been brought on by Workforce Fury”.
They are saying a date for a listening to has not been confirmed for later this month.
The Gypsy King, who shocked the world in beating Waldimir Klitschko to the heavyweight title in November 2015, is desperate for a return to the ring.
He needs to get the all-clear from UKAD after he failed a drugs test in the aftermath of the Klitschko win, later admitting to taking cocaine.
Fury – who has continued to train with mega-fights against Anthony Joshua, Tony Bellew, Deontay Wilder and Joseph Parker potentially on the horizon – was initially meant to meet UKAD in the summer.
Testers are said to have found traces of the banned steroid nandrolone in a sample of Fury’s urine back in Februray 2015.
His cousin Hughie has also been charged with the same substance, but both fighters deny the accusations.
Fury also faces a four-year ban for refusing to take part in a random test 15 months ago, and his hopes of regaining his suspended boxing licence are on the line.
The 29-year-old posted a video to his own social media on Tuesday morning, singing song lyrics as he drove to training.
Fury is desperately trying to shed weight ahead of a potentially explosive 2018.
