Three to Four Fights From Joshua Showdown
With Tyson Fury’s UKAD issues behind him and the British Boxing Board of Control expected to reinstate his license, it appears now more so than ever that the former champion will return to the sport in the near future.
Fury has been out of the ring since winning the WBA, WBO, IBF and Lineal heavyweight championships from Wladimir Klitschko over two years ago. If he will ever return to the form he was in before of course remains to be seen.
The fact that he is clear to return soon however has promoters trying their best to land his services. First it was Eddie Hearn who offered Matchroom’s backing and now it’s Frank Warren, who Fury was previously with, doing the same. Fury who signed a management agreement with MTK has yet to say if he will comeback with Warren or not. That didn’t prevent Warren from discussing his possibilities with Boxing News.
“I’ve been talking to Tyson, we’re seeing where we go with that,” Warren said.
“I like Tyson and we get on well. He was out in Canada with us. He worked for BT out there and we flew back together. We’re doing okay, we’re doing alright and hopefully we’ll be involved in his comeback. I’d love to be because for me he’s the best heavyweight out there on his day.”
Warren stressed the fact that he don’t think the “Gypsy King” should be rushed in his return.
“I don’t think he’ll fight until the end of April [or] May. Get himself right. He’s lost about three and a half stone, trained every day out there [in Canada]. His trainer went out there with him. So he’s serious now,” he said.
