Undefeated World heavyweight champion Tyson Fury has tested positive for Cocaine.

The controversial 28-year-old Briton, who is already facing a drugs charge from UK Anti-Doping, failed the test last week.

It represents a new low for Fury, who was found to have traces of cocaine in a test carried out 24 hours before he withdrew from his rematch with Wladimir Klitschko – a bout scheduled for October 29.

He now faces being stripped of his WBA, WBO and IBO belts, although that was already a likely outcome after he pulled out of his Klitschko obligation twice.

He has already been stripped of his IBF title after being unable to fight a mandatory challenger.

Fury – nicknamed the Gipsy King – is due to appear before UK Anti-Doping in November for his failed drugs test last year before dethroning Ukrainian Klitschko in Dusseldorf.
