Tyson Fury begins second leg of his career this Saturday
The return of Tyson Fury is coming up this Saturday when he finally steps into the ring for the first time in over two years. Showtime Network has decided to live stream the bout on their social media platforms in America.
The fight will be shown on Facebook and YouTube through the Showtime Boxing platforms. Fury who is set to face Sefer Seferi, not the best of opponents but after such a long layoff it might just be the right one.
Fury was reinstated by the British Boxing Board after being suspended due to a failed drug test. He also suffered from mental health issues, and has clawed all the way back. He looked out shaped for most of his layoff but has been putting in a lot of work in the gym, shedding quite a few pounds.
The former heavyweight champion of the world is looking to put himself back in contention. While being away from the sport, he has watched the rise of fellow countryman Anthony Joshua. He has a long road ahead but if he can remain focused and keep out of trouble, there’s no reason that he can’t be a major player in the division.
A charismatic figure to say the least, has already feuded with Klitscho brothers, talks of wanting to be the man. He is said to of found the love for the sport again, something he felt was missing when everything started to unravel around him. He claims that eventually he would like to face the likes of Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder in the near future.
First thing’s first however, he must get pass Seferi, shed some of the ring rust off, slowly try to make his way back to the top. There’s no question the heavyweight division is better with him in it, the question is, can he stayed focus?
Kudos to Showtime for bringing us the bout. The return of the Gypsy King will be streamed in America.
