Breaking: Tyson Fury To Be Stripped Of World Title Following Positive Drugs Test

Breaking: Tyson Fury To Be Stripped Of World Title Following Positive Drugs Test
By Gavin Cooney Updated

Tyson Fury looks set to be stripped of his world titles having tested positive for cocaine.

The news has been broken by ESPN's Dan Rafael, who writes that Fury "was notified that he failed a VADA-conducted test for cocaine in a random urine sample collected on Sept. 22".

Rafael also writes that "the results of VADA's testing for performance enhancing drugs are not yet complete, but the positive cocaine test likely will result in Fury being stripped of his world title belts".

Fury was due to fight Vladimir Klitschko on October 29, but had to pull put having been declared "medically unfit". At a recent event in the UK, when asked by Steve Bunce how he was feeling, Fury responded that 'he kept hearing he had gone mad'.

The soon-to-be-former World heavyweight champion has been openly battling depression throughout his boxing career, and has himself claimed on occasion that he believes himself to be bipolar.

It's likely that Wladimir Klitschko and his next opponent - which may or may not be Anthony Joshua - will fight for at least one of the belts that Fury is set to forfeit.
