Tyson Fury to make boxing comeback

  • Fury has not fought since beating Wladimir Klitschko in November 2015 to win the WBA IBF and WBO belts

Fury, who still holds the unofficial "lineal" heavyweight title (the man who beat the man), announced his long-awaited comeback at a press conference on Wednesday.

Tyson Fury will fight for the first time in almost three years when he returns to the ring in Manchester Arena on June 9.

Warren warned that he would take three or four fights to get in a position to fight for a title.

Following his Cardiff victory, Joshua holds the same belts (WBA, IBF, WBO) as Fury did when he upset Klitschko nearly three years ago. Joshua, he's a big old dosser, a belt-carrier for me - by the time I'm ready it's going to be a no-contest.

While away from the sport, Fury piled on the pounds but in recent photographs and social media video looks slimmer. Fittest I've ever been, people say you've had two-and-half-years out of the ring. Wilder is unsafe until the last few seconds of a fight, only needs one punch, but he's a bit weak around the old whiskers and he's not the best boxer in the world.

No "final decision" yet on Syria response, White House says
If Trump tries to scupper the probe, it could set in motion a series of events that eventually threaten his presidency. Trump at the time slammed Obama as " a disaster " and " very dumb ", and warned: "Do NOT attack Syria, fix U.S.A".


Fury had become increasingly vocal about a prospective ring return in recent months, and further clamour for his comeback arrived following Anthony Joshua's laborious win over New Zealand's Joseph Parker on 31 March; Fury's own assessment was that the pair's unification clash was a "shit fight, and a shit performance by both fighters". "He needs to get some rounds under his belt", Warren said.

"It's going to be an easy fight, no contest", he said of a potential match-up with the champion.

He replied: "No comment", adding: "I'm a boxer, I'm not interested in politics or anything else".

But there was only so much turkey and tinsel the undefeated Fury could take before he hit rock bottom. But Fury, 29, has never fought again and vacated his titles one year later to focus on substance abuse and mental-health issues after testing positive for cocaine.

"I used to go out in this big Jeep with a big chain on and no shirt, fat as anything. The reflexes are as good as they've ever been".
