The WBO and WBA World Heavyweight Champion Tyson Fury has been forced to vacate his titles after he admitted to taking cocaine to ‘deal with depression’.


Fury caused quite the upset late last year when he beat Wladimir Klitschko to win both titles off of the imposing Ukraine, but has since failed to defend his title as he’s spiraled into drug use and depression.

Cocaine was recently found in his blood during a drug test, and whilst technically not on the list of banned substances, placed his title reign under jeopardy. He has now vacated both titles.

“I won the titles in the ring and I believe that they should be lost in the ring, but I’m unable to defend at this time and I have taken the hard and emotional decision to now officially vacate my treasured world titles,” he said in a statement announcing his decision.

“I now enter another big challenge in my life which I know, like against Klitschko, I will conquer,” he added.

Klitschko, who was supposed to fight Fury in a title rematch on October 29, would fight British heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua for the vacated WBA title.
