Gyspy King AKA Tyson Fury returns

Tyson Fury has been allowed to return to boxing after a two-year anti-doping ban expired on December 12th. The British Boxing Board of Control confirmed the renewal of Fury’s boxing license would be considered in January.

Fury is currently the WBO number one heavyweight. The fighter is undefeated in 24 fights with 18 knockouts. He last fought on the 28th November 2015 beating Vladimir Klitschko by a unanimous decision. The fighter is known for his comedic attitude with references to his own weight and athletic ability all fair game. He said, once he beat Klitschko, ‘you were beaten by fat man”. After a time out of the ring, the fighter needs to get back in shape in order to compete against the best boxers.

In an interview on SoccerAM, the fighter exclaimed he was currently 23 stone. However, with training, he hopes to hit 19 stone before getting in the ring.

Promoter Eddie Hearn illustrated his views that Tyson Fury should return following his ban and ‘it will be good for the sport.’ Hearn teased the first three fights fury will undergo if he should return.  “We’ve got three fights for him. He can fight Dillian Whyte on the comeback, then Tony Bellew and then he can have Anthony Joshua.” And with Tony Bellew eager to get back in the ring after David Haye pulled out last minute, this is a strong possibility for Fury.

But the fans are keen to see him fight boxing’s current poster boy Anthony Joshua. With both fighters undefeated it creates a huge sense of rivalry due to be the best. There has been an increase in speculation that the fight will happen. even Fury knows a win against Joshua would declare him as boxing royalty all over the world.

Joshua is currently set to fight Joseph Parker next in Cardiff. So if there was to be a Tyson Fury/Joshua face-off it will be after that fight.
