ODDS AND ENDS
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.
