It’s been yet another dramatic week in the life of Tyson Fury.
Today he vacated his WBA and WBO heavyweight title after canceling his rematch with Wladimir Klitschko last week.
Now, despite having his boxing license suspended by the British Boxing Board of Control, his uncle and trainer Peter Fury has said that his nephew will be back in the ring.
After Fury canceled his rematch with Klitschko for the second time last week, the 28-year-old revealed in an interview with Rolling Stones magazine that he had been taking cocaine to deal with mental health problems, something which is being investigated by UK Anti-Doping.
Klitschko now looks set to fight Anthony Joshua in London sometime over the next two months, and it looks like it will be a long way back for Fury. He could still be banned from boxing after admitting taking cocaine, while he is now being treated for mental health issues.
His uncle and trainer, Peter Fury expects to see him return to boxing, however.
“Absolutely, you will see him in the ring again," he said, via Sky Sports.
"I was with him yesterday, me and his dad, and just listened to him speak and the way he is. Boxing is in his life, it’s in his blood, it’s in his veins. He doesn’t know anything else.
“He’s just frustrated. When you lose interest in everything and you can’t see the meaning of anything- clearly you’ve got a problem.
"He’s addressing it now and we spoke for three and a half, four hours yesterday. The treatment he’s had already is doing him a lot of good.”
“He hasn’t got a drug addiction, he just did a stupid thing. He’s not going into any clinics for drug abuse. He’s got manic depression, which is a version of bipolar disorder.
"They said over a period of the next few months he should start to respond, and progress.”
It looks like Fury will be out of the ring for a long time, and it seems unlikely that he will ever be at the level he was at to beat Klitschko in Dusseldorf last year.
