Tyson Fury announces comeback fight on June 9 in Manchester

It has been two and half years since the former WBA-WBO-IBF world heavyweight champion defeated Wladimir Klitschko, during which time the likes of Anthony Joshua and Joseph Parker have usurped him at the top of the boxing game.

"I'm back to reclaim what is rightfully mine and that is the world, because I hold it in my hand." said Fury, who has signed with promoter Frank Warren.

"The Heavyweight division should now be put on notice because the lineal Champion will be back on June 9th and will be looking to pick back up where he left off", said Warren. Tyson Fury hasn't boxed since his victory over Wladimir Klitschko back in November 2015. Fury, who was born of Irish Traveller heritage and refers to himself as the "Gypsy King", was asked by media members whether his wild days are behind him.

"There are a few people out there that are claiming to be the world's best and I know for a fact that they're not".

"Let's say I'm a lot, lot, lot lighter than I've been in the past".

When is the next Tyson Fury fight?

Tyson Fury and Frank Warren announce the boxer's June return to the ring.

It's been a tough journey ever since having been accused of doping and battling with depression, but following months of training he's fit and ready to make his comeback. "The reflexes are as good as they've ever been".

He, however, prefers to fight Wilder next.

Sure to be one of the stand-out events in the boxing calendar this year, Fury's return will only serve to enhance expectation that sooner or later, he will square up against the man now in possession of "his" belts, Anthony Joshua.

"If I could fight for a world title tomorrow I would".

Joshua profited heavily from the stripping of Tyson Fury, with the lost belts being made vacant. But they're all vulnerable.

Speaking at a press conference, Fury sent a warning to the two current heavyweight champions.
