Frank Warren, UK promoter of current WBC and two-time heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, has flatly rejected claims the team around the "Gypsy King" offered to pay a farmer to lie about the source of wild boar meat that the boxer claims led to a failed drug test - for nandrolone - back in 2015. The allegations, from Martin Carefoot, who initially supported Fury’s version of events but now claims he only did so on the expectation of a fee he never received, were published in the Mail on Sunday.

 

Warren, fresh from Fury stopping Deontay Wilder in what the promoter ranks as the greatest victory by one of his fighters, was quick to rubbish the story, in a statement, although conceded UKAD would be forced to investigate.

 

“The farmer making these outrageous allegations sent me a letter last October, full of errors and basically telling me he had committed perjury by signing statements under oath and lying," Warren stated. "When I called him, he asked for money. I told him to clear off and get in contact with UKAD. He chose not to speak to UKAD but instead speak to a newspaper.

How anybody can take this man seriously is beyond belief. Tyson has never met this man in his life. What a load of rubbish. We’ll leave this with UKAD to look into and don’t expect it to go any further.

It looks like while the football season has been paused, there’s nothing to write about and silly season has instead commenced.“
