Morgan Sports Law acts for British heavyweight boxers Tyson Fury and Hughie Fury (“the Boxers”) in the resolution of anti-doping proceedings brought by UK Anti-Doping (“UKAD”).
In June 2016, UKAD charged the Boxers based on reported elevated levels of nandrolone metabolites in urine samples provided after their respective fights in February 2015. Tyson Fury, a former heavyweight World Champion, was also charged – separately – based on his alleged failure to provide a sample in September 2016.
The Boxers have always maintained that they have never knowingly or deliberately committed any anti-doping rule violation. The long-running dispute concluded on 12 December 2017 with a settlement between the Boxers and UKAD, further to which the anti-doping proceedings were brought to an end and which allowed the Boxers to resume their careers with immediate effect.
