Fury announces June return after absence since 2015

Fury announces June return after absence since 2015

Fury (25-0, 18 KOs) held a news conference Thursday to announce he will headline a card on June 9 at the Manchester Arena in his native England against an opponent to be determined. June 9th at the @ManchesterArena is the first step back to reclaiming what is rightfully his.

The British Boxing Board of Control (BBBC) suspended the unbeaten 29-year-old's licence in 2016, citing anti-doping and medical issues.

Warren also said: "Until anyone beats Fury they can not rightfully call themselves the world heavyweight champion because he didn't lose his titles in the ring".

The posters were already on display when, in every sense of the word, Fury entertained the media at the Four Seasons hotel in central London, and they told his simple message: "The Real Heavyweight champion of the world".

"HE'S BACK! Delighted to announce that gypsyking101 has signed a promotional deal with us".

Fury's first fight back will nearly certainly be a small-fry affair, as the boxer looks to warm up ahead of a run at all four heavyweight title belts and secure a couple of headline knockouts as he stakes his claim to be back at his best.

The two were supposed to fight in a rematch in 2016, but injuries and Fury failing a drug test caused the rematch to be canceled.

Trump casts doubt on timing of any Syria strike over gas attack
There was no immediate confirmation or indication from Assad's government that Syrian troops entered Douma on Thursday. Last week, an attack on Douma left at least 70 people dead, of which 40 showed signs of exposure to chemical toxins.

He has previously laid down a challenge to compatriot Anthony Joshua, who unified the WBO, IBF and WBA titles against New Zealand's Joseph Parker in Cardiff last month.

Fury said of his unusual rehab after being diagnosed with mental problems: "I had a good few nights out, having a good time after boxing since I was six years old".

"He's going to be busy".

"This took a very long time to make happen. He needs to get some rounds under his belt", Warren said.

Though the fitness side of Fury's comeback is very much still a working progress, significant improvement has seen him prove doubters wrong and get into a position to re-ignite what has been so far, a flawless professional career.

"I've had many good Saturday nights watching the fella, he's a very good fighter and I can't wait to get back in there and prove that I am the best. He's fit but he needs to be fighting fit".
