Licence renewal: BBBoC keeps Fury waiting

Licence renewal: BBBoC keeps Fury waiting

Tyson Fury (25-0-0, 18KOs) will have to wait until January on news of the renewal of his boxing licence, the British Boxing Board of Control (BBBoC) has confirmed.

The “Gypsy King” and cousin Hughie Fury (20-1-0, 10KOs) were yesterday cleared of historic blood doping offences by UK’s Anti-Doping (UKAD).

The 29-year-old was banned for two-years by UKAD for testing positive fir a banned steroid in 2015.

However, the ban has been backdated meaning that the former world heavyweight champion is free to box depending the BBBoC’s January ruling.

Fury’s licence was revoked in October 2016 due to medical issues.
