Tyson Fury, Britain's world heavyweight boxing champion has made it known to Rolling Stone magazine during an interview on Tuesday that he drinks and takes cocaine in order to ease depression.

Recall that Fury tested positive to cocaine last week according to a leaked letter by Voluntary Anti-Doping Agency (VADA).

Fury said,” I’ve been out drinking, Monday to Friday to Sunday, and taking cocaine. I can't deal with it (depression) and the only thing that helps me is when I get drunk out of me mind," he said.

"I've done lots of cocaine. Lots of it. Why shouldn't I take cocaine? It's my life isn't it? I can do what I want ... That ain't a performance enhancing drug.

"I never took other drugs, ever, in my life. I only started to take cocaine in the last few months," added the WBA and WBO champion, who said he stopped using the drug on Oct. 1.

When he was asked if he took cocaine whenever he fights, he responded as, "No drugs at all, no drugs at all. I have never ever taken a drug to help me boxing in my life. Never took a performance enhancing drug ever."

Earlier this year, Fury was charged with a doping offence by UK Anti-Doping after a urine sample from February 2015 - nine months before he beat Wladimir Klitschko to win the WBA and WBO world titles - showed traces of the banned stimulant nandrolone.
