    Fury fails to turn up to his doping hearing:

    Aside from his hideous social views and - well of course - whether he was actually guilty of steroid doping, it's a shame. Would have been good to see him in with Joshua or Wilder. His style isn't always a good watch, but he's rather good at frustrating powerful opponents. Good at finding a way to win.

    Even if I put to one side his abhorrent views, I take a very dim view of drug cheats in sports, especially combat sports. So I don't really give two shits if he never fights again, especially with the various excuses and games he has played in relation to various drug charges.

    I still recon we could clear all this up if you have a separate system for the dopers in sport, they compete openly with others who also use enhancements. If you get caught being doped up you get stripped of any medals or trophies and have to go win the drug/machine enabled ones instead. More sport=more advertising.

    The only downside to it is that there is those who thirst for victory so much they'll ruin themselves and others. Like steroids and WWE fighters. Not sure how to prevent that bit of it.

    So a compromise was reached and he is free to fight again once he gets licensed. I can't say I'm terribly impressed with the UK anti-doping authorities over the way this one played out, they came across as weak at some stages. But Im not that shocked, most anti-doping systems have flaws and there is always pressure when it comes to big name sportspeople.

    ... and there's no plausible defence to that after the furore caused by McGregor using the same term. He knew what he was doing.
