World champion Fury makes retirement U-turn

0

LONDON: Controversial world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury made an abrupt U-turn on his retirement decision on Monday, tweeting: “I’m here to stay.” The provocative 28-year-old British brawler, dogged by reports he failed a drugs test for cocaine, had earlier declared himself “retired” in a profanity-strewn tweet. Reports by US broadcaster ESPN last week claimed Fury had tested positive for cocaine. The British fighter recently cancelled an October bout with Wladimir Klitschko to defend his WBA and WBO heavyweight belts. Fury’s promoters, Hennessy Sports, said they did not wish to comment.
