Tyson Fury Teases Retirement Or To Fight Outside Of UK

After stating he would not reapply for a boxing license from the British Boxing Board Of Control, Tyson Fury’s career may be over, at least in the United Kingdom.

The undefeated 29-year-old Britton, became WBA (Super), IBF, WBO and IBO world champion when he beat Ukrainian Wladimir Klitschko in November 2015 but has not fought since.

Fury had his license withdrawn by the BBOC in October of 2016, “pending further investigation” by the governing body of his homeland.

Fury also found himself in trouble with the UK Anti-Doping governing body, as in February 2015 he showed traces of the banned substance nandrolone. Fury has denied any wrongdoing since the time of the result.

Fury appeared to have retired last year, only to retract his statement before relinquishing his titles, claiming in a statement that he wanted to deal with mental health issues.

Fury suggested in March of 2017 that he could make a comeback and when compatriot Anthony Joshua beat Klitschko at Wembley the following month, the new world champion said he wanted to fight Fury, a challenge Fury accepted on twitter.
