The Boxing Union of Ireland would not consider a licence application from Tyson Fury while he is under suspension with the British Boxing Board of Control.

Fury, 28, had his licence to fight temporarily revoked by the BBBoC the day after he gave up his world heavyweight titles to focus on mental health problems.

While coach Peter Fury, said the suspension might prove a blessing in disguise, there were suggestions that the now-former heavyweight champion of the World could go the BUI route.

After years of attempting to prove his Irish roots the ‘Gypsy King’ finally got a BUI licence and fulfilled a life long Irish title dream by defeating Martin Rogan in Belfast.

He was stripped of his title when he fought with a British licence in his following bout, but has often threatened to take back out his BUI licence after numerous fall outs with the powers that be in Britain.

There were suggestions that he may re apply for a BUI Licence in the future, but the BUI confirmed to Irish-Boxing.com that no application would accepted while the talented big man was under suspension with their British counterparts.
