Celebrity News: Tyson Fury, the controversial former world boxing champion, posted a message on social networks announcing, by what is meant, his retirement from professional boxing.
Recall that Fury was suspended due to drug use, including cocaine so he had to return the titles that snatched him in 2015 from the former Ukrainian champion, Wladimir Klitschko.
Since then he has speculated on his return but the British Boxing Board of Control has not given him the authorization to re-box.
“I have been very blessed in my life & career to achieve the upmost in boxing, it was an epic journey along the way. Thanks to all the fans that supported and believed in me along the way, Hope you enjoy it as much as I did. ❤️❤️ THE END ”
Maybe this is the reason that motivated Fury to post the message on social networks “I have been very blessed in my life and career to reach the maximum in boxing, it was an epic journey. Thanks to all the fans who supported me and believed in me. I hope you enjoy this as much as I do. THE END”.
In recent months there has been speculation about the return of Fury and eventual mega fights with boxers like David Haye and Anthony Joshua but none of that has materialized.
Fury, who turns 29 on Aug. 12, twice withdrew from a rematch with Klitschko in 2016 and was finally stripped of the titles for two positive cocaine tests by the Volunteer Anti-Doping Association that oversees boxing testing.
The Englishman Fury was also suspended from his license by the British Boxing Board of Control and has also gained weight. In addition, even if Fury wanted to box tackle an anti-doping hearing in the UK for a previous charge of using a performance-enhancing drug, the banned steroid Nandrolone, derived from a 2015 fight before defeating Klitschko.
Fury, 6’9 “, has previously said on social networks that he was hanging on his gloves only to quickly retract the announcement.
