Tyson Fury will not apply for British Boxing Board of Control licence

Tyson Fury says that he will not reapply for a licence to fight from the British Boxing Board of Control and will take his "money and business" elsewhere.

Tyson Fury has revealed that he will not apply for a licence with the British Boxing Board of Control.

The former world heavyweight champion had his licence revoked in October 2016 after allegations of doping emerged in June.

Fury has not fought for nearly two years since ending Wladimir Klitschko's world heavyweight title reign in Dusseldorf in November 2015.

The Brit, who twice postponed rematches with Klitschko last year, had hoped to return to the ring earlier in 2017 but that plan was scuppered when his National Anti-Doping Panel hearing was adjourned in May.

On Wednesday, Fury tweeted: "After thinking long and hard about my return, I will not be applying for a BBBofC boxing licence. After the way they have handled stuff, no thanks."

Though it was speculated that the 29-year-old was announcing his retirement, he clarified his position by adding: "Make it clear, I'll not apply to the BBBofC for a new licence, I'll go elsewhere, take my money and business to somewhere that appreciate it."

Fury's boxing licence will not be considered until the conclusion of his UKAD case.
