Tyson Fury might have to wait long while before he can actually step into the ring and box Anthony Joshua.
We know that Fury’s planned comeback fight on July 8th is unfortunately a no go. This is because UKAD (UK Anti-Doping Agency) have postponed his hearing until October of this year. On top of that Fury has received some more bad news, this time from the British Boxing Board of Control.
“The BBBoC is awaiting the outcome of the UKAD hearing and at present his boxing licence is suspended until such time, after which the BBBoC will consider Mr Fury’s position further,” said an official statement the by board according to PA Sport.
For Fury, this means he has sit on the sidelines at least until the end of the year. He won’t be eligible to go in front of the board and try to get his license back because of UKAD’s decision to postpone his hearing.
