Tyson Fury announces June return to boxing after absence since 2015

Tyson Fury announces comeback - with sights set on Anthony Joshua

Fury also suggested Joshua, who now holds the WBA, WBO, IBF and IBO championship belts, is now second fiddle to American WBC king Deontay Wilder in the division.

The 29-year-old is set to make his anticipated ring return on June 9th in Manchester against an unnamed opponent.

When asked about possible future opponents, promoter Frank Warren revealed he expects it will take "three or four fights" for Fury to get back to the top level.

Fury has not boxed since he dethroned Wladimir Klitschko back in November 2015 to claim the IBF, WBA and WBO titles on an unforgettable night in Germany.

"Joshua is a big old dosser, he's a belt-carrier for me".

While away from the sport, Fury piled on the pounds but in recent photographs and social media video looks slimmer.

Fury settled with Ukad late last year and served a back-dated two-year ban for testing positive for a banned substance.

Both fighters blamed the result on eating wild boar.

If the plan materializes, it will also be a threat to the United States as it would shake-up the country's dominance in the Pacific.


Another long road awaits Fury and it will be interesting to see what kind of shape he's really in come June 9 at the Manchester Arena.

He has previously laid down a challenge to compatriot Anthony Joshua, who unified the WBO, IBF and WBA titles against New Zealand's Joseph Parker in Cardiff last month.

"He's going to be busy".

Though the fitness side of Fury's comeback is very much still a working progress, significant improvement has seen him prove doubters wrong and get into a position to re-ignite what has been so far, a flawless professional career. "He needs to get some rounds under his belt", Warren said. This is a fight for depression, mental problems.

"The agenda will be Tyson's, not anybody else's - when he is ready we will be good to go".

But there was only so much turkey and tinsel the undefeated Fury could take before he hit rock bottom.

He replied: "No comment", adding: "I'm a boxer, I'm not interested in politics or anything else". My timing and my reflexes are better than they've ever been.

"It hasn't been frustrating [on Joshua], I just have to congratulate the fella, he's done very well".
