Fury moves closer to Joshua showdown

LONDON: Controversial boxer Tyson Fury moved closer to his dream all-British world heavyweight showdown with Anthony Joshua when he was told on Friday that he will get his licence back if he passes a medical.

The 29-year-old — who has not fought since his shock win against Wladimir Klitschko in November 2015 to become the undisputed heavyweight world champion — cleared a hurdle in his battle to fight again after a meeting with the British Boxing Board of Control (BBBC) on Friday.

“Following (an) interview with Tyson Fury at the BBBC offices earlier today, the suspension of his boxer’s licence will be lifted subject to receipt and clearance of all medical requirements,” a statement read.

That announcement follows another favourable ruling last month as the troubled boxer tries to return to the ring following a positive test for steroids.In December, UK Anti-Doping (UKAD) cleared Fury to return, after an absence of over two years, following his acceptance of a backdated two-year ban.
