Tyson Fury Faces Eight-year Ban from Boxing

Published

UK Anti-Doping (UKAD) will investigate Tyson Fury and his cousin Hughie Fury, after Martin Carefoot claimed that a member of the boxer’s team offered him £25,000 to lie about how they each failed a drugs test in 2015.

After the initial investigation, the Furys were handed backdated two-year bans in 2017, for testing positive to nandrolone.

However, Sportsmail reports there is new evidence in the case, which could lead to a possible eight-year suspension for tampering with evidence.

Carefoot who is a Lancashire farmer, has come out to say he lied when he submitted two written statements to the Furys’ legal team in 2017, by claiming he supplied the fighters with uncastrated wild boar.

The defence blamed the presence of nandrolone metabolites on the “ingestion of offal of uncastrated wild boar or pig, or alternatively from contaminated supplements”.

Fury defeated Deontay Wilder last month to claim the WBC heavyweight title and is set for a trilogy fight with the American.
