Former world heavyweight champion, Tyson Fury, is free to resume his boxing career after accepting a backdated two-year doping ban.

Fury was charged in June 2016 for a banned steroid which he said had come eating wild boar.

His last fight was his monumental win against Wladimir Klitschko to become world champion back in November 2015 before his UKAD hearing.

Now Fury has been cleared by UKAD, he now has to regain his license from the British Boxing Board of Control before he enters the ring.

This looks to be an easy process however as the board has agreed with this decision according to UKAD.

A similar agreement has also been reached with Hughie Fury who was facing similar charges.

The Furys insist that they have “never knowingly or deliberately committed a violation”.

Fury has also taken to social media to show the documents which have confirmed this decision.
