Tyson Fury, a former heavyweight champion, will make his much anticipated return to the ring on June 9, 2018 in Manchester. The boxer’s opponent has however not been named. He had been out of boxing since 2015 after a serious of problems ranging from alleged drug use to mental health issues.
Fury, 29, beat Wladimir Klitschko to claim the IBF, WBA and WBO world titles in November 2015. The Gypsy King was suspended in 2016 amid “anti-doping and medical issues” and accepted a backdated two-year ban in December. His license was however reinstated earlier this year and is now signed with promoter Frank Warren.
Fury first fought as a professional in December 2008 and has won all 25 of his pro bouts, but has been out of action for more than two years.
