Controversial heavyweight champion Tyson Fury reverses 'retirement' just hours after foul-mouthed goodbye tweet
Heavyweight world champion Tyson Fury has apparently performed a retirement u-turn just hours after saying he was stepping away from boxing.
The controversial boxer claimed a famous victory over Wladimir Klitschko last November to become the heavyweight champion.
The duo were set for a rematch on October 29. However, the 28-year-old recently pulled out of the bout after being declared "medically unfit" to compete on September 23, and last Friday, ESPN reported that Fury tested positive for cocaine the day before.
In response to these reports, Fury sent out this Tweet:
Fury reportedly failed a test administered by the Voluntary Anti-Doping Association.
It was thought that the positive test would likely result in Fury being stripped of the belts that he won from the Ukrainian.
This afternoon, Fury sent another Tweet that lit up the boxing world even more than the above effort.
However, after only a few hours in 'retirement', Fury appears to have changed his mind.
