However, today's story was barely done when Fury took to Twitter and stated that he had hoodwinked the press and would fight on: 'Hahahaha u think you will get rid of the GYPSYKING that easy! Just shows you what the media are like.

According to reports, Fury was already under investigation from the UK Anti-Doping Agency over an alleged use of a banned substance.

"Plenty of people have done cocaine as well".

Wladimir Klitschko's management on Tuesday all but ruled out a heavyweight world title rematch against Briton Tyson Fury after his latest antics.

"Fury said he hadn't taken cocaine since" the first of the month" but made no secret of his previous usage. He went from virtual unknown in the United States to beating Vladimir Klitschko to become the heavyweight champion of the world.

"Klitschko, he is definitely involved in this because he's got everyone in his pocket".

Fury appeared to poke fun at that particular allegations earlier this week when he posted a mock-up photo of him as Scarface character Tony Montana.

"I've been out drinking, Monday to Friday to Sunday, and taking cocaine", the British fighter told Rolling Stone magazine.

Texans hold 27-20 lead over Titans in 2nd half
That means running back DeMarco Murray will likely be the best Titans option in this game for fantasy owners. Murray scored two touchdowns and finished the game with 95 rushing yards.

Fury also responded to the reports about that positive test on Twitter by posting a cryptic photograph.

"Fury imposed his own face onto the picture, which he captioned "#Tysonmontana".

Fury had said earlier on Monday that was retiring from boxing after a positive drug result.

In addition to his issues with drugs, Fury said he is undergoing psychiatric treatment to help his battles with depression: "They say I've got a version of bipolar".

Fury was provisionally suspended, but his ban has since been lifted and his legal team have threatened legal action against UKAD. It's unclear if he will be stripped of his titles due to the cocaine scandal.

Fury's uncle and trainer Peter Fury said recently that the boxer was "almost at breaking point" and receiving professional help.

Let's hope that the final tweet is accurate, as recent comments from Fury's good friend, middleweight titlist Billy Joe Saunders, suggest that the 28-year-old is really struggling at present.
