The World Heavyweight champion was informed of a positive test at the end of September
An ESPN report yesterday claimed that Tyson Fury could be in danger of losing his World title belts after he tested positive for cocaine.
Cocaine is not a banned out of competition substance but sources say that the urine sample was collected in an in-competition test conducted by the Voluntary Anti Doping Agency (VADA) on September 22nd.
Fury was scheduled to have a title re-match against Wladimir Klitschko in October where was going to defend his WBO and WBA belts but the fight was postponed on September 23 with Fury's fight promoter declaring him 'medically unfit' for the bout.
The Fury camp have so far denied to respond to the latest reports and the World Boxing Organisation are said to be interested in the allegations.
But Fury has taken to Twitter today to post an image of himself entiled #Tysonmontana which is seemingly a nod to Tony Montana, the chief character and drug Lord from the Hollywood film Scarface.
Make of this what you will
