Fury set to be stripped of WBO ti­tle

Fiji Sun - - Sport -

London: Bri­tish world heavy­weight cham­pion Tyson Fury will be stripped of his WBO belt un­less he re­sponds to a no­tice from its chair­man in the next 10 days. Fury must ex­plain why the belt should not be va­cated due to “in­ac­tiv­ity, breach of con­tract and per­for­mance-en­hanc­ing drugs”. Fury with­drew from October’s re­match with Ukrainian Wladimir Kl­itschko be­cause of men­tal health is­sues. The 28-year-old has said he was tak­ing co­caine to help deal with de­pres­sion. The Bri­tish Box­ing Board of Con­trol (BBBofC) is meet­ing to­day when it will look at Fury’s co­caine ad­mis­sion, which was made dur­ing an in­ter­view with Rolling Stone mag­a­zine.
