Former heavyweight champion Tyson Fury was finally set to begin his U.K. Anti-Doping hearing today, in what was expected to be a preliminary step to him getting his boxing license back, but apparently the hearing wasn’t high on Fury’s priority list. Multiple reports have surfaced, including one from The Mirror, which state that Fury didn’t even bother to show up to today’s hearing, which will now delay the proceedings even further.

Instead, Fury was busy posting videos of himself dancing in the car...

The mercurial Fury has repeatedly stated that he was serious about getting his boxing career back together, but the proof is in the pudding — and he’s certainly not helping his own cause.

The British Boxing Board of Control, who suspended Fury’s license last year, have already stated that they aren’t going to consider revisit his case until his UKAD hearing has concluded. Fury was accused of testing positive for banned substances and should his hearing — if it ever begins — uphold the failed drug test, Fury could be facing an even lengthier suspension that could kill any potential thoughts of a comeback.
