Tyson Fury (25-0, 18 KOs) has had his licence suspended by the BBBoC while they investigate his recent doping charge and alleged positive test for cocaine.

‘The British Boxing Board of Control confirms that Mr. Fury’s boxer’s licence is suspended pending further investigation into anti-doping and medical issues,’ stated the Board when posting the news on their official website.

The 28-year-old is battling depression, so has decided to relinquish his WBO and WBA titles via a statement that he released last night. Fury has an appeal scheduled with UKAD in November, which will then be followed by a meeting with the Board, who will have the final say as to his immediate ring future.

Fury has not fought since November of last year, his decision win over former Champion Wlad Klitschko in Germany and now faces a spell on the sidelines as he battles his personal demons.
