Frank Warren releases statement on farmer's claims

In response to an article published in the Mail On Sunday, Frank Warren rubbished claims made by a Lancashire farmer, Martin Carefoot, that he was paid £25k to provide false statements confirming he was supplying pork, which led to Tyson and cousin Hughie Fury to test positive for the banned substance nandrolone in 2015.

In light of the recent article, Hall of Fame promoter Frank Warren on behalf of Queensberry Promotions had the following statement to make:

“The farmer making these outrageous allegations sent me a letter last October, full of errors and basically telling me he had committed perjury by signing statements under oath and lying. When I called him, he asked for money. I told him to clear off and get in contact with UKAD. He chose not to speak to UKAD but instead speak to a newspaper.

How anybody can take this man seriously is beyond belief. Tyson has never met this man in his life. What a load of rubbish. We’ll leave this with UKAD to look into and don’t expect it to go any further.

It looks like while the football season has been paused, there’s nothing to write about and silly season has instead commenced.“
