Fury (above) has been out of the ring since he outpointed Wladimir Klitschko in November, 2015 to win the WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO world titles.
UKAD has said that Fury provided a urine sample in February, 2015 that contained traces of the banned steroid nandrolone.
The case was due to heard earlier this year but was postponed when a member of the panel hearing the case claimed a conflict of interest.
Fury could also face a four-year ban from UKAD for refusing to give a sample in a random test in September last year.

Fury is keen, though, to get his career back on track as is eying up a multi-million pound summer showdown with current world champion Anthony Joshua if he clears his name.
He has been back in training aiming to shed the six stones that he claims he needs to lose to get back to his best.
