When it was reported on Friday that world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury had tested positive for cocaine, it didn’t raise too many eyebrows.
The controversial boxer has hit the headlines throughout his career with outrageous comments and behaviour, despite him holding the WBA and WBO world titles.
Fury pulled out of his proposed rematch with Wladimir Klitschko last week, stating mental health issues.
However, after ESPN broke the news of him testing positive for cocaine, it’s clear that this revelation was the main reason for his withdrawal.
But how did Fury react to the news? By apologising on social media and admitting he has let down all of his fans?
Well, not exactly, no.
Fury has taken to Twitter to post a picture of him as Tony Montana surrounded by a mountain of cocaine with the hashtag #Tysonmontana.
The picture is, of course, taken from the Scarface movie which shows the life of Montana - a drug lord who went on to rule Miami.
Not exactly the apologetic response we were expecting.
Fury is believed to have taken the test on September 22, one day before he withdraw from his fight with Klitschko.
While this shocking tweet in the only thing we’ve heard from Fury’s camp, team Klitschko have had their say.
Bernd Bönte, Klitschko’s manager, responded to the cocaine claim by telling ESPN: “I think Fury is probably the most unworthy heavyweight champion in history, not only because of this situation but because of the whole package of his sexist comments, his antisemitic comments and his homophobic comments that have been [well documented].”
