The Grueling Truth - Where Legends Speak / Tyson Fury: The Gypsy Con

Tyson Fury: The Gypsy Con

Gypsy Con!
Publish Date: 07/15/2021
Fact checked by: Simon Briffa

Let me start by saying that I respect what Tyson Fury has achieved and his talent as a boxer. I also think he is the best heavyweight in the world. However, I have issues with how he conducts himself, his questionable activities in the past, like testing positive for performance-enhancing drugs.

Testing positive

Fury’s best win to date was his 2015 victory over Wladimir Klitschko. The issue with that fight is what happened after the fight. Although a rematch was set for late October, Klitschko and Fury agreed to have drug testing for their rematch overseen by the Las Vegas-based Voluntary Anti-Doping Association (VADA).

England’s Fury submitted to a random drug test on Sept. 22 in Lancaster, England. The results came back positive for the substance benzoylecgonine, the central compound found in cocaine, and the marker for a positive test for the banned substance. I don’t think cocaine is a performance enhancer, but I am pretty sure that cocaine is not a legal drug. The fight was canceled right after this failed drug test because Fury’s doctor said that the fighter was medically unfit to box because of mental health issues. The rematch was scheduled to occur in June of 2016, but Fury pulled out because of a supposed sprained ankle. If you believe the fight was canceled for a legit reason, you are crazy. So the fight was canceled two times and would never happen.

When the fight was rescheduled, the camps scheduled a news conference for Sept. 5 in London, but that was called off for undisclosed reasons one day before. It was rescheduled for Sept. 12, also in London, and while the promoters and Klitschko showed up, the 28-year-old Fury skipped it, claiming his car broke down. Do you see a trend here?

UK Anti-Doping handed Fury and his cousin Hughie retrospective two-year bans in 2017 after initially testing positive in 2015 for nandrolone, which they blamed on eating uncastrated wild boar meat. The 2015 test was early in the year after a fight with another boxer before the Klitschko fight. So let me ask you this. Do you think Fury may have been on performance-enhancers for the Klitschko fight? The answer to that has to be yes; there was no drug testing before the original Klitschko fight.

Fury, after the first Klitschko fight, had this to say

“The man’s a cheater, the man’s an out and out cheater, he’s a jealous person, and he’s resentful.When I went to fight Klitschko, it was my first time stepping up, and I was a ten-to-one underdog.

“The win meant so much to him that he was gonna do anything to get it, I mean anything and even when it means cheating.

Maybe Klitschko was using performance-enhancers, but we know that Tyson Fury failed a test several months before.

Mental Health, is it an excuse?

The mental health issues never popped up until it was time to give Wlad a rematch. I don’t want to sit here and say he doesn’t have mental health issues, but could this have been a way of getting out of a rematch? With the history of excuses from Fury, it has to make you wonder. The sad thing is the suspension for doping was made retroactive, which means he was never truly punished for it, and when you consider how dangerous if one fighter is using and the other one isn’t, it makes using a disgusting act.

Did Fury cheat in the ring against Wilder?

The simple answer is no. There’s no proof. It shows you that neither one of these fighters are really good at anything outside of excuses. Fury is a known drug cheat and possibly uses mental health and eating bad pork as excuses. It’s very hard to believe anything either one of these idiots says.

Did Fury duck the rematch?

History tells us that he had no plans of fighting Wilder in July. So will the rematch ever happen? Maybe, but with Fury involved and his history with Klitschko tells us there is no sure answer.

Who is good enough to beat Fury as of now?

Only Tyson Fury can defeat Tyson Fury. He’s the most talented heavyweight globally, but his past has proven him to be a mental midget. Is it mental health, or is he just a child in a grown man’s body? We should know that before the years out.
