TYSON FURY’S latest foul-mouthed ranting and raving – at a London press conference to promote his July 26 return with Dereck Chisora – triggered several complaints from those in attendance. The British Boxing Board of Control met on July 16 to discuss the consequences of Fury’s behaviour.

THE British Boxing Board of Control considered the behavior of Boxer Tyson Fury at the Press Conference for his forthcoming contest against Dereck Chisora.

The Stewards have decided to call Mr. Fury before them under Regulation 25 (misconduct) to their next meeting on Wednesday, 13th August 2014 when this matter will be dealt with.

Failure to attend this hearing will result in Mr. Fury’s boxer’s licence being suspended.

ROBERT SMITH, General Secretary
