Tyson Fury ordered to attend BBBofC meeting on August 13 for misconduct
Heavyweight contender Tyson Fury has been called to account for his actions at the recent press conference for his upcoming rematch with Dereck Chisora, the British Boxing Board of Control have informed WBN.
Fury, 25, went on one of his trademark rants in London earlier this week, and after using some choice words on Chisora and trainer Don Charles, complaints were made by some of the those in attendance.
This prompted the BBBofC to discuss the matter at a scheduled meeting this week and Fury will now face possible disciplinary action, or even worse, if the hearing doesn’t go his way next month.
‘The British Boxing Board of Control considered the behavior of Boxer Tyson Fury at the Press Conference for his forthcoming contest against Dereck Chisora,” a statement read.
‘The Stewards have decided to call Mr. Fury before them under Regulation 25 (misconduct) to their next meeting on Wednesday, 13th August 2014 when this matter will be dealt with.
‘Failure to attend this hearing will result in Mr. Fury’s boxer’s licence being suspended.’
The undefeated fighter, who is highly-ranked with all the major organisations, had already apologised for his behaviour on his social media account on Wednesday.
