Fury set to be stripped of WBO title
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.
