As Sunday Mirror claims that Fury and cousin Hughie had tested positive for anabolic steroids broke, the top division ruler decided to leave the United Kingdom behind to take in some live sport.
The 27 year-old headed to France following the postponement of his rematch with Wladimir Klitschko due to a sprained ankle suffered in training earlier this month. Fury was due to battle Klitschko on July 9 in Manchester but has been given at least a four month reprieve as his injury heals.
Video of Fury allegedly buying over one thousand Euros worth of Jager Bombs, according to journalist Melissa Chapman and friend Vicki Miller has since surfaced, which apparently shows the fighter without a care in the world.

Promoter Mick Hennessy was forced to release a statement on Fury’s behalf denying the tabloid reports of drug taking prior to the ‘Gypsy King’ defeating Klitschko in Dusseldorf last November.
The UK-Anti Doping Agency have so far been quiet on the situation as the investigation continues, although Fury is more concerned with taking his mind away from even more negative publicity.
Fury has already been the subject of rumours over his pre-fight partying, weight gain and general lack of a champion lifestyle, but that doesn’t seem to be phasing the outspoken puncher and a second fight with Klitschko or a possible ban from boxing is seemingly the last thing on his mind.
