World heavyweight champion Tyson Fury could be stripped of his belts after reportedly testing positive for cocaine.

This news comes a week after Fury pulled out of his October 29 rematch with Wladimir Klitschko on the grounds of being “medically unfit” – the second time Fury has pulled out of a match with the former champ.

ESPN reported that Fury failed a random urine sample cocaine test conducted last week.

Sunday Mirror Sport revealed that Fury recently refused to undergo a check when visited by inspectors from the UK Anti-Doping Agency.

A source said:

Tyson was visited by testers over the last few weeks but just refused. He said, ‘F*** off’, and wouldn’t do it. His camp tried to contact UKAD to get him tested but to date that has not taken place.

Experts found unacceptable levels of nandrolone (an anabolic steroid) in a sample taken before he took the world title from Klitschko.

During an interview in April, Fury ‘joked’ about cocaine use:

It’s either high or low. I’m either off my head on cocaine or down on the floor from a tranquiliser injection.

Most of the time, I’m just down and depressed like today, because for every high there’s a low.

I mean that sounded like one of those half jokes that are probably true.

Is this a knockout for Fury?
