Tyson Fury (25-0-0, 18KOs) has been cleared to fight again following acceptance of a backdated two-year doping ban.

The “Gypsy King” was found guilty of using a banned steroid in June 2016; blaming the result on eating a uncastrated wild boar.

Fury beat Wladimir Klitschko (64-5-0, 53KOs) in November 2015, his last fight before a legal battle with UK Anti-Doping (UKAD)

According to BBC Sport: “The British Boxing Board of Control (BBBCoC) which manages the licensing of boxers in the UK, has agreed to the outcome according to Ukad.”

But the 29-year-old will have to apply to the BBBCoC if he is to regain his licence.

Tyson Fury took to Twitter immediately following UKAD’s ruling to call out heavyweight juggernaut Anthony Joshua (20-0-0, 20KOs).

Fury vs. Joshua anybody? It’s a yes from me!
