According to ESPN, Fury tested positive for cocaine on September 22 – a day before he pulled out of the proposed bout.

Fury has reportedly failed a Voluntary Anti-Doping Association (VADA) conducted test, with cocaine found in a urine sample.

The world champ’s lawyers lodged High Court papers in July to refute charges that he used a performance-enhancing substance eighteen months ago.

UKAD’S rap dates back to urine samples taken in 2015 when traces of banned substance nandrolone were detected.

But the ban was lifted and the October fight was scheduled to ahead – before Fury pulled out again with his camp declaring him ‘medically unfit’.
