Eddie Hearn suggests Tyson Fury's isn't telling the whole story on his ban from boxing

It's been a year since Tyson Fury vacated his heavyweight world titles before he could be stripped of them and had his boxing license suspended by the British Boxing Board of Control.

And we're still no closer to learning exactly what he took - although cocaine has been rumoured - or whether he will be able to regain his licence.

In recent days, Fury has claimed he will not re-apply for a licence to fight from the BBBC.

“After thinking long and hard about my return, I will not be applying for a BBBofC boxing licence,” he tweeted.

“After the way they have handled stuff, no thanks.”

But Matchroom Boxing leader Eddie Hearn believes that there's a reason the UK Anti-Doping investigation is taking far longer than usual and perhaps, Fury has something to hide.

“There’s something that hasn’t been told here, in my opinion,” he told IFL TV.

“I don’t believe UKAD would just slow up Tyson getting his license back. If he legitimately hadn’t done anything, he would be out. Something’s not right with this but I don’t know the full story."

“It seems strange because we don’t know the full story.”

Fury has announced his retirement a few times over the past year and he's also said he is training for a comeback, so you never really know what the Gypsy King is thinking.

Earlier in 2017, Fury did go to train in Spain with WBO middleweight champion Billy Joe Saunders. However, recent pictures suggest he certainly didn't keep that training up.

Fury has also called out now IBF, WBA and IBF heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua and following his victory over Wladimir Klitschko - whom Fury also beat - AJ seemed up for the fight.

Whether Fury can get himself back in a reasonable condition to fight his compatriot is one thing. Whether he can emerge from this complicated mess with his boxing licence once again appears to be another.
