BBoC Want Updated Medical Records From Fury

The British Boxing Board of Control insist they need Tyson Fury’s updated medical records before they could even consider giving the 29 year old his license back.

Fury’s last fight was his stunning upset of Wladimir Klitschko in November 2015, which won the Manchester fighter the WBA, IBF, IBO and WBO, and would have to give up those belts following personal and professional issues dealing with PED’s, alcohol, and drugs.

The BBBofC suspended his licence in October 2016, citing “anti-doping and medical issues”, with Fury having vacated his WBO and WBA titles, the latter which is now held by Joshua.

In December, Fury accepted a backdated two-year ban from the sport, which opened the door to a 2018 return.

BBBofC general secretary Robert Smith stated in an interview with BBC5 said: “We have a number of reports already in from when he was suspended.

“We will need up-to-date ones and then pass them on to our doctors and consultants. They will tell me if they need more but at present we are nowhere near that.”

“I have spoken to Mick Hennessy [Fury’s promoter], advising he’d like to get on with this as soon as possible and he did say he’d come back to me but unfortunately at this time he hasn’t so it hasn’t moved on yet.”
