World champion Tyson Fury who shocked the world when he defeated Wladimir Klitschko is currently under investigation for potential doping abuse.

The Sunday Mirror reported that traces of the banned anabolic steroid nandrolone were allegedly discovered in a sample taken last year, believed to be six months before Fury won the world crown from Wladimir Klitschko.

Fury’s cousin, Hughie, reportedly tested positive for nandrolone too, and both face a lengthy ban if found guilty. Both boxers have denied the accusations.

Two days ago, due to an ankle injury, Fury postponed his highly anticipated rematch with Ukraine’s Wladimir Klitschko.

Fury and Klitschko were scheduled to fight in Manchester on July 9 after Fury unexpectedly ended his rival’s 11-year reign as world heavyweight champion in November 2015.
