Tyson Fury still being investigated by anti-doping chiefs despite pig farmer refusing to cooperate with drug probe

July 14, 2020

TYSON FURY is reportedly still under investigation following his failed drugs test in 2015.

The pig farmer – who claimed he was offered £25,000 to help Fury dodge a ban – is refusing to co-operate after dropping his allegations.

Even though the farmer is not willing to help the authorities, Sportsmail claim the investigation is ongoing.

Anti-doping chiefs are determined to get to the bottom of the case after Fury tested positive for the steroid nandrolone.

The WBC heavyweight champion and cousin Hughie Fury both failed a urine test.

Both fighters denied doping – and blamed it on either their supplements or because they had eaten uncastrated wild boar meat.

The consumption of wild boar meat could lead to a rise in natural levels of nandrolone in the body.

Farmer Martin Carefoot initially admitted to providing them with the meat "every three to six weeks".

But four months ago he went back on his claims and insisted he had never kept or killed wild boar.

He stated that he had been offered £25,000 to help the heavyweight champion escape without a ban.

Promoter Frank Warren described the 70-year-old's claim as "bulls***."

Tyson and his cousin received a two-year ban that was backdated.

Lancashire cops are still investigating the case – five years after the first failed drug test.
