WORLD CHAMPION FURY MAKES RETIREMENT U-TURN
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.
