Box­ing: The body that runs Bri­tish box­ing cast doubt on Tyson Fury’s an­nounce­ment he is close to re­turn­ing to the ring, say­ing the for­mer world heavy­weight cham­pion’s li­cense re­mains sus­pended, and he has an up­com­ing anti-dop­ing hear­ing.

Fury wrote Mon­day on Twit­ter he was “work­ing on an op­po­nent” and gave a re­turn date of May 13.

Robert Smith, gen­eral sec­re­tary of the Bri­tish Box­ing Board of Con­trol, said the group was “nowhere near” a de­ci­sion on Fury’s ban.
