Tyson Fury’s licence to fight has been suspended by the British Boxing Board of Control (BBBoC), pending further investigation into anti-doping and medical issues, Sky Sports reports.

The BBBoC announced its decision on Thursday morning after officials discussed Fury’s case on Wednesday following a reported failed drugs test in the United States and his admission in Rolling Stone magazine that he has “done lots of cocaine” in a bid to battle depression.

A statement read: “The British Boxing Board of Control confirms that Mr. Fury’s boxer’s licence is suspended pending further investigation into anti-doping and medical issues.”

Fury, 28, who hasn’t fought since he beat Wladimir Klitschko in November 2015 and has twice withdrawn from rematches, vacated his WBO and WBA world heavyweight titles, saying he was unable to defend them because of his health.
