According to the Sunday Mirror, the World Heavyweight Champion had traces of the steroid nandrolone found in his system after a doping test last year, before the Klitschko fight.
Fury's cousin Hughie is also being investigated as similar levels of the steroid were found in the 21-year-old. The younger Fury is also unbeaten in his professional career.
