Tyson Fury Free To Box

Tyson Fury has been cleared to resume his career after accepting a backdated two-year ban.

The former heavyweight world champion last stepped into the ring when he beat Wladimir Klitschko in November 2015.

Fury was provisionally suspended in  2016 after news broke that he had failed a drugs test nine months before he beat Klitschko.

He was due to attend a UK Anti-Doping hearing in London on Monday but did not attend the hearing, instead posting videos of himself on social media.

It was revealed at Tuesday’s hearing that Tyson, as well as his cousin Hughie would be free to return to the sport after accepting a backdated two-year ban from today.

Fury, 29, must reapply for his British Boxing Board of Control license, but the UK Anti-Doping issues have been cleared up and further details will be revealed in due course.
