Tyson Fury announces June return to boxing after absence since 2015

Tyson Fury announces June return to boxing after absence since 2015

The former unified world heavyweight champion hasn't fought since November 2015, where he dethroned Wladimir Klitschko in Dusseldorf, Germany. Timing, reflexes, everything, better than ever, I kid you not.

Fury incessantly taunts Joshua on social media, but it will be a while before they fight.

"Now Tyson is back, in fantastic shape and full of beans, ready to take the first step on the road back towards world domination once again".

The announcement of the fight coincides with Fury agreeing to a multi-fight extension with promoter Frank Warren.

It has been announced that the comeback will start on Saturday, June 9, 2018 at the Manchester Arena, England. "And we will announce the opponent in due course".

Fury also failed a test for cocaine in September 2016 and later admitted using the recreational drug to deal with depression related to his injury and UKAD problems.

However, Fury will have to wait for his shot at Joshua, who is targeting a blockbuster unification bout with fellow unbeaten world champion Deontay Wilder, who holds the WBC heavyweight belt.

Fury's first fight back will nearly certainly be a small-fry affair, as the boxer looks to warm up ahead of a run at all four heavyweight title belts and secure a couple of headline knockouts as he stakes his claim to be back at his best.

And Fury dismissed the theory he may have been frustrated to be away from boxing while Anthony Joshua has stepped into the spotlight and become the WBA, IBF and WBO belt holder.

The former champion reiterated that he has split from trainer/uncle Peter Fury and will now be working with the relatively inexperienced Ben Davison.

Frank Warren has confirmed that issues have virtually been cleared up with the BBBofC, has been cleared to be medically fit, licenced to fight. He's going to be busy, he needs some rounds under his belt.

"The Mac is back and he's ready to take the world back", he said.

"I've got to congratulate Joshua, he's done very well. He's fit but he needs to be fighting fit".
