Boxing champion Tyson Fury launches legal case against UK anti-doping after drug use allegations


    World heavyweight boxing champion Tyson Fury has sued the UK Anti-doping agency after the agency alleged that he used a performance enhancing drug. According to the Sun UK, Fury, who defeated Wladmir Klitschko to become the world heavyweight champion – has lodged high court papers denying the the doping allegations, demanding answers over why he has been charged and also wants damages.

    The UKAD report dates back to urine samples taken in February 2015 but released in June 2016 which showed traces of banned substance nandrolone — nine months before Tyson Fury’s title win over Wladmir Klitschko. Fury’s lawyers are asking why it took over a year for urine sample results to be released given that a second test showed no traces of the anabolic steroid and that a blood test at the time was also negative.

    According to the court documents, Tyson’s took test for the last ten months before his fight with Klitschko which also came back negative and he was told by the UKAD that he won’t be charged or prosecuted . Fury also claims they were told by UKAD that the contamination of a dietary supplement was the most likely explanation of the positive result.

    Fury’s big rematch against Klitschko is scheduled for October 29.
