Hennessy Sports have finally cleared up the situation regarding a recent scheduled British Boxing Board of Control / UK Anti-Doping hearing involving Tyson Fury.
Fury was due to be in London for the start of proceedings regarding a failed drugs test in 2015 as the former heavyweight champion bids to clear his name.
Posting several Instagram clips since he was due before the Board and an independent panel, Fury didn’t explain his absence, only making comment about the cold weather.
Busting out his chinchilla fur, Fury belted out tunes by Ed Sheeran and one of is own personal favorites by Mark Morrison – The Return of the Mack from the 1990’s as fans quizzed him on why he wasn’t there.
The 28 year-old seemed happy and relaxed enough with life as he serenaded viewers in his car, something Hennessy then moved to enlighten everybody on.
“Dear All, To be clear Tyson Fury was not required to be at the UKAD hearing yesterday. More news to follow shortly,” said a short social media post without confirming the hearing was going ahead with only lawyers present.
It’s thought that is the case though, with a verdict due either at the end of this week or potentially as late as early next year.

Fury is still training for a potential comeback in 2018 but has to cut through the mass of red tape currently hampering a bid to reclaim the world titles he lost in 2016.
A failed drug test in 2015, coupled with a failure to comply in September 2016, need to be explained to the Board and UKAD.
Millions of pounds are at stake as clashes with Anthony Joshua, Tony Bellew and others hang in the balance, with Fury concentrating on losing weight during his fight against a potential ban.
