Former champion Tyson Fury to fight again after doping ban

Former champion Tyson Fury to fight again after doping ban

"I have no need to lie, I'm better now than I was before, a lot better".

Since Fury last fought, Joshua has become boxing's biggest star and now holds Fury's old WBA, IBF and WBO titles.

"He's going to be busy".

Tyson Fury's return to the boxing ring will take place on 9 June in Manchester, it was announced today. "There's nothing worse than having a mental problem".

That would see WBA, WBO and IBF champion Joshua entering the ring against WBC heavyweight title holder Wilder first, with Fury enjoying a couple of warm-up fights before taking on the victor of that grudge match later in the year - New Year's Eve fights are always big business in boxing, after all.

Talking to the Daily Mail about his comeback and a potential fight with Joshua, Fury said: "It's been a long complex drawn out situation but I'm back to reclaim what is rightfully mine". "By the time I get ready to fight, it's going to be an easy fight". He said this was as a result of eating uncastrated wild boar. I will outbox for a few rounds and knock him out.

However, Fury dismissed the threat of rival Joshua as he talked up American heavyweight Wilder.

President Trump cancels Philadelphia Eagles visit to White House
Here's the statement from the White House in which President Trump says fans "deserve better" than having a small group attend. Apparently that tradition will end as President Trump has disinvited the Philadelphia Eagles from visiting the White House.

He said at a press conference in London: "I've got to congratulate the fella, he's done very well. I gave up my belts voluntarily because I had bigger fish to fry and that was my own health and now I'm back and it's up to me to get it all back", says Fury.

"It hasn't been frustrating, it's been exciting".

"I'm the flag-bearer, the best heavyweight champion out there now". The reason is that he's unsafe until the last two seconds of a fight.

While Fury's name and ability to sell a fight is expected to provide an additional shot in the arm to a division now undergoing a renaissance, questions still linger as to whether he can return physically to his prime form. There are people out there who claim to be the world's best but I know for a fact that they're not.

Who do you think Tyson Fury will fight next? "The reflexes are as good as they've ever been".

The 29-year-old served a two-year suspension from the British Boxing Board of Control following a positive test for nandrolone in February 2015, but his return prompted questions from ITV about his strong personal views on same-sex marriage, misogyny and anti-semitism.
