Tyson Fury will face no criminal action from Greater Manchester Police following hate crime allegations.
Police looked into comments made by heavyweight champion Fury about homosexuality following a complaint by a member of the public.
However, officers have decided "no criminal offence has taken place" and the complaint will be recorded as a "hate incident".
"The matter has been investigated in line with national hate crime policy and has been recorded as a hate incident," a GMP spokesman said.
"The circumstances in which these comments were made suggest that no criminal offence has taken place and this matter will not be investigated any further."
The British Boxing Board of Control have asked controversial boxer Tyson Fury to attend an interview regarding his recent media comments.
Heavyweight champion of the world Fury has been criticised for his views on homosexuality in the wake of his win over Wladimir Klitchko last month.
The BBBC met to discuss the matter on Wednesday before informing Fury last night, and again on Thursday morning, that he is to front the board.
"Mr Fury has been called for an interview in the new year," BBBC general secretary Robert Smith told Press Association Sport.
World heavyweight champion Tyson Fury has defended his comments on homosexuality and women, telling ITV News he shares the same opinions as the Pope.
Fury also said he wasn't concerned about police investigating his comments, but his views could mean he is dropped from this year's BBC Sports Personality of the Year programme.
ITV News Sports Editor Steve Scott reports:
Tyson Fury's inclusion on the Sports Personality of the Year shortlist is a recognition of his sporting achievement and "not about endorsing his personal views", the BBC has said.
Fury has sparked controversy with comments about women and homosexuality, prompting calls for him to be removed from the shortlist.
But on Wednesday, a BBC spokesman said: "Tyson Fury's victory and subsequent crowning as world heavyweight champion was widely covered by media outlets and his inclusion on the shortlist is similarly recognition of his sporting achievement - it is not about endorsing his personal views.
"It will be for the public to decide who will be crowned Sports Personality of the Year 2015."
Fury, 27, stunned Wladimir Klitschko to win the WBA, IBF and WBO belts last month, although has since been stripped of the IBF title.
The Sports Journalists' Association have withdrawn Tyson Fury's invitation to the British Sports Awards due to threats he made to one of the organisation's members.
Mail on Sunday writer Ollie Holt carried out an interview with the boxer, in which Fury says he was misquoted.
The paper then released the full transcript of the interview, including Fury's controversial views on homosexuality.
Fury later filmed himself saying: "See "big Shane" there. He's 6ft 6in and 25 stone. He's going break his [Holt's] jaw completely with one straight right hand. I won't do it as I'll get in trouble but the big fella there will annihilate him.
"Oliver, take a good look at him because that's the face you're going to see before you hit the deck.
"[Turning camera to another member of his team] And that's the face you're going to see when he's jumping on your head."
A spokesman for the SJA said: “We are aware of threats made by Tyson Fury against one of our members, and therefore feel that it would be incompatible with the nature of our event, or the interests of our members, our other guests and our sponsors, for us to continue to extend a welcome to Tyson Fury to our awards next week.”
