Tyson Fury to make boxing comeback in June

Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua

Joshua has since claimed all of the three major world titles that Fury vacated following his last victory over Wladimir Klitschko in November 2015, but the returning 29-year-old insists his rival can gain even more recognition in an all-British battle.

Following his Cardiff victory, Joshua holds the same belts (WBA, IBF, WBO) as Fury did when he upset Klitschko nearly three years ago.

Fury also dismissed the theory he may have been frustrated to be away from boxing while Joshua has stepped into the spotlight. He is looking for one punch all night.

The self-proclaimed "Gypsy King", 25-0 (18 KO's), has been back in full training working towards his long-awaited comeback fight and is determined to prove that he is still the man in the Heavyweight division by reclaiming all of the belts that rightfully belong to him.

Warren tweeted: "Delighted to announce @tyson_fury has signed a promotional deal with us".

"I'm the fittest that I've ever been".

American fighter Deontay Wilder has reportedly been offered a $US12.5 million contract to fight unified heavyweight boxing champion Anthony Joshua. "We all saw the Joseph Parker fight, anyone who moves he struggles with", said Fury. My timing and my reflexes are better than they've ever been. "I believe it was a must and I couldn't take any more boxing at the time", he said.

"I am a couple of years older, when I return it will be one of the longest comebacks in history for a world champion".

"I'd outbox him for a few rounds then I'd knock him out".

After several more questions which Fury again refused to answer, he then stated: 'I'm a boxer, I'm not interested in politics or anything else'.

There's no word on who Fury's opponent will be, but late a year ago Shannon Briggs said that he had a deal in place to be Fury's first comeback opponent. I needed a young person with a passion to achieve his goals himself.

"I'm over the moon to come back". Fury-Klitschko II was re-scheduled for October 29 in Manchester, but that match fell out too because Fury was emotionally and physically unfit to fight; he had put on an enormous amount of weight. The ones who are scared to step up talk a good game, but don't back it up so I get bored of it'.
