Tyson Fury confirms ring return in June

Tyson Fury lands a right on Wladimir Klitschko during their 2015 fight

Fury has signed a promotional deal with Frank Warren which will bring him under the BT Sport boxing umbrella.

Meanwhile Anthony Joshua, whom Fury has been trying to goad into accepting a fight, has since won all the titles Fury previously won.

In January earlier this year, Fury announced on his official Twitter account that he is ready to return to professional boxing and that he will be reapplying for the license to British Boxing Board of Control.

"Until he makes his return to the ring, I can not sit down and wait patiently at home for Tyson Fury's return", Joshua told Sky Sports.

The former world heavyweight champion has signed with promoter Frank Warren, who announced the Manchester Arena fight on Thursday. "Most people can relate to what I've gone through".

He sensationally quipped that he could come back, take on a unified champion, land all the heavyweight belts and retire - but a world title fight is clearly some way off.

It would mark almost three years since Fury last stepped inside the ring, when he would beat Wladimir Klitschko for three heavyweight titles in November 2015.

Joshua profited heavily from the stripping of Tyson Fury, with the lost belts being made vacant.

The 29-year-old had not fought competitively since beating Wladimir Klitschko in November 2015.

"I didn't keep hold of the belts, I had personal problems, and the other guys have got hold of them", Fury said.

Fury ballooned as high as 378 pounds during his two-year layoff and is hoping to get down as low as 259 pounds for his return.

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

"I believe I can outbox both of them, but they are both very risky all the time they are in the ring".

American TV giants Showtime, who broadcast Joshua and Wilder's fights stateside, have lent their backing to a potential undisputed title fight. I kid you not.

Former heavyweight boxing champ Tyson Fury explains how the "mac is back" to reclaim the world.

"He needs to get himself fighting fit".

While Fury certainly remains a wild card due to his weight and mental instability, it's possible he could become Kryptonite to the current champions should he return to elite form.
