Tyson Fury poses with all his belts - on the day he is set to relinquish them

JEFF POWELL: Tyson Fury took what is likely to be a last, lingering look on Tuesday at the world heavyweight championship belts he is believed to be in the throes of relinquishing as treatment for clinical depression prolongs his absence from the ring. Manchester’s Gypsy King, having pulled out of his contracted rematch with Wladimir Klitschko twice in the 11 months since his upset triumph in Germany, hopes to be declared champion in recess by the WBA and WBO, whose belts feature in his collection. That is more certain if he stands down, rather being stripped of his titles, and would position him to challenge for the belts as soon as he is declared fit to box again.
