The U.K Anti-doping agency have postponed Tyson Fury’s hearing. The decision puts the former world champions plans for a July 8th return at risk. Apparently there is a potential conflict of interest involving a panel member according to UKAD. A new date for a hearing has yet to bet set.
Originally the case that started on May 8th was supposed to conclude last week but it’s still on going due to the postponement. Fury and his cousin Hughie Fury both allegedly took a performance enhancing drug called nandrolone and got caught after a failed drug test back in 2015.
Both Fury fighters deny all allegations of them taking banned anabolic steroids. Their promoter Frank Warren implicated the case it’s taking its toll and calling it ‘ridiculous.’
“We want to see the end of this. It’s ridiculous. It’s gone on and on. It’s been over their heads for two years. It reflects badly on UKAD; it’s taken all this time to get there and in the meantime there’s no outcome. This is crazy. It’s people’s lives on hold, and it’s wrong,” said Warren to Press Association Sport.
Depending on the UKAD’s decision, Fury still has to go in front of the British Boxing Board of Control and try to get his license back. People close to Fury believe he will be exonerated from all charges. So far there has been no word of what is actually going to happen with ‘The Gypsy King.’ There might be a potential penalty coming up which will definitely put his comeback fight on the shelves for a while.
