CON­TRO­VER­SIAL world heavy­weight cham­pion Tyson Fury made an abrupt U-turn on his re­tire­ment de­ci­sion yes­ter­day, tweet­ing: “I’m here to stay.” “Ha­ha­haha u think you will get rid of the GYPSYKING that easy!!! I’m here to stay,” Fury wrote on Twit­ter. “#TheGreat­est just shows u what the Medea (sic) are like. Tut tut.” He added: “Soon as I get bet­ter I’ll be de­fend­ing what’s mine the heavy­weight thrown (sic).” The provoca­tive 28-year-old Bri­tish brawler, dogged by re­ports he failed a drugs test for co­caine, had ear­lier de­clared him­self “re­tired” in a pro­fan­ity-strewn tweet. “Box­ing is the sad­dest thing I ever took part in, all a pile of sh*t,” he had writ­ten three hours ear­lier. “I’m the great­est and I’m also re­tired...” Re­ports by US broad­caster ESPN last week claimed Fury had tested pos­i­tive for co­caine. The Bri­tish fighter re­cently can­celled an Oc­to­ber bout with Wladimir Kl­itschko to de­fend his WBA and WBO heavy­weight belts.
