The world champion under versions of the world Boxing Association (WBA) and world Boxing organization (WBO) heavyweight champion Briton Tyson fury in an interview with Rollingstone admitted that he did a lot of cocaine because of depression, but never took a drug that could help him in the ring.
“I did a lot of different things in my life, I did a lot of cocaine. Why shouldn’t I take cocaine? After all, this is my life, I can do whatever I want. Yes, I took coke”, – quotes the boxer TASS.
The doping sample of the British, which was taken on September 22, gave a positive result for cocaine. The media also reported that a boxer is a mental problem. 3 Oct fury rudely announced the completion of a career, but a few hours later issued a denial, calling the first message is a joke.
“I have a few months not been to the gym and did not train. I’m depressed and don’t want to live anymore, if you know what I mean. So cocaine is much less significant than the lack of desire to continue living, because I never did drugs and started a few months ago, on October 1, I didn’t take it,” said the Briton.
28-year-old boxer said that he never used any substances to improve performance and results, and cocaine is not.
In November 2015, fury took the champion titles IBF, WBA and WBO in the Ukrainian Wladimir Klitschko, defeating him on points by unanimous decision. Later the British took away the IBF belt for refusing to carry out mandatory protection. The fight is a rematch between Klitschko and fury were scheduled for 29 October but was postponed several times by the fault of a new champion.
