Tyson Fury Announces Retirement from Boxing, then Takes it Back

After seemingly announcing his retirement earlier in the day, Fury has suggested that his claims were all part of an elaborate joke.

Fury's representatives were not immediately available to comment when contacted by Reuters.

The boxer has not fought since taking Klitschko's IBF, WBA and WBO belts in a victory in Germany in November past year.

On Friday it was reported that Fury had failed a drugs test after a random urine test on 22 September tested positive for the substance benzoylecgonine, the central compound found in cocaine.

Recently Fury has been at the centre of a torrid time personally and professionally, after it emerged he had unfortunately been suffering with various mental health issues since winning his heavyweight titles past year against Wladimir Klitschko.

A spokesman for Australia's Environment Minister Josh Frydenberg said the government was trying to get it ratified as soon as possible.

In between his two Twitter announcements, Fury posted a link to a YouTube video in which he said George Kokkalenios, an American lawyer, was "telling the truth about the corruption in boxing".

He'll likely be stripped of his titles and face a suspension for the positive drug test.

"They're all abusing performance-enhancers or weight-strippers or whatever they're gonna do to take drugs".

The 27 year-old, who boasts an undefeated record and now holds the WBA, WBO and IBO titles, has been causing concern with his erratic behaviour following weeks of bad publicity.

The rematch was initially scheduled for July but Fury pulled out with an ankle injury.

Peter Fury, the fighter's trainer and uncle, told The Guardian recently that the boxer is "receiving professional help for issues" that have come up since winning the titles.

Going on to explain why the fight has been called off again, he added: "I've not been in a gym for months".

"As much as I wanted to go to him and give him a hiding for the abuse he was giving me "gypsy whatnot", I had to just keep walking", Saunders said.

Last week, rival promoter Eddie Hearn - who represents Fury's British rival Anthony Joshua - claimed that he believed Fury would never fight again.

"They've forced me to the breaking edge".
