Box­ing - Klitschko's man­ager says Tyson Fury will have dop­ing test

Malta Independent - - SPORT -

Wladimir Klitschko's man­ager says Tyson Fury will un­dergo a dop­ing test be­fore the two fight­ers meet in their heavy­weight re­match next month. Bernd Boente says dop­ing tests for both fight­ers are writ­ten into the con­tract for the 29 Oc­to­ber fight in Manch­ester and will be con­ducted by the Vol­un­tary An­tiDop­ing As­so­ci­a­tion, based in Las Ve­gas. Fury beat Klitschko in Novem­ber to claim the WBA, WBO and IBF ti­tles. A re­match was originally sched­uled for July 9 but was post­poned after Fury said he sus­tained an an­kle in­jury. It was dis­closed in Au­gust, on the same day Fury an­nounced the in­jury, that the new cham­pion had been charged by the UK Anti-Dop­ing agency and sus­pended from the sport after test­ing pos­i­tive for a banned sub­stance.
