Heavyweight champ Tyson Fury tweets fake retirement announcement

BY foxsports • October 3, 2016

Less than a year after handing Wladimir Klitschko his first loss since 2004 to become the heavyweight champion of the world, Tyson Fury may (or may not) be walking away from the sport after news broke that he tested positive for cocaine shortly before his rematch with Klitschko was called off. 

Fury, who has not fought since last November, was scheduled to face Klitschko two days before Halloween but was declared unfit to fight in September. ESPN reported last week that Fury failed a random drug test conducted on September 22nd and tested positive for cocaine. 

Over the weekend, Fury made light of the situation by tweeting a Scarface photoshop. 

On Monday, Fury announced that he's now retired from the sport. 

Three hours later, Fury appeared to change his mind to troll the media.
