Tyson Fury “Retires”, Backtracks a Few Hours Later

“Boxing is the saddest thing I ever took part in, all a pile of [expletive], I’m the greatest, & I’m also retired, so go suck a [expletive], happy days.” were the words that Tyson Fury tweeted on Monday morning.

Twitter went into a little bit of a frenzy, with Fury’s name being a worldwide trending topic.

A few hours later, Fury retracted his statement about being retired:


The announcement came days after there were reports of Fury being tested positive for benzoylecgonine, a component found in cocaine. Fury and his team were mum about the whole situation, up until Fury himself tweeted a picture of his head, photo shopped on a photo of a character from Scarface, Montana.

A few weeks ago, Fury withdrew from his rematch with Wladimir Klitschko, with reports of dealing with mental issues. Reports of being tested positive for benzoylecgonine surfaced a few days later.

Fury continued to tweet, “Soon as I get better I’ll be defending what’s mine the heavyweight thrown.”

A few hours after that, Fury tweeted that he was getting help:


Fury currently holds both the WBA and WBO titles. He faces a hearing in November after being charged by the UK Anti-Doping Agency (UKAD) back in June.

Peter Fury, Tyson Fury’s uncle and trainer, is confident that Fury will be back in the ring next year.
