British world heavyweight champion, Tyson Fury is to face a UK Anti-Doping (Ukad) charge over the presence of a banned substance.

BBC Sports reports that Fury was provisionally suspended in June, though that has been lifted pending a hearing, Ukad has revealed.

The 27-year-old had said on Tuesday he would sue the organisation over allegations he used a performance-enhancing substance.

Fury’s cousin and fellow boxer Hughie has also been charged.

The Sunday Mirror reported on 26 June that traces of banned substance nandrolone were found in a urine sample taken from Fury in February 2015.

He denied the claim and his legal team says the result of tests from March and May 2015 were contradictory.

Fury beat Wladimir Klitschko to win the WBA and WBO heavyweight titles in November.
