Share this story

Tyson Fury has revealed he intends to make his comeback to professional boxing in May.

The British heavyweight has not been in action since he won the WBO, IBF and WBA Super belts by defeating Wladimir Klitschko on points in November 2015.

The IBF subsequently stripped Fury of his title soon after the bout while he gave up his remaining straps last autumn for medical reasons before the British Boxing Board of Control suspended his license.

The BBBofC are yet to officially confirm the 28-year-old’s suspension has been lifted but Fury himself has revealed he plans to return to the ring on May 13 against a yet-to-be-confirmed opponent.

“Breaking news. Return of the MAC, May 13th, working on an opponent more news to follow,” Fury tweeted.

The IBF and WBA world title belts will be on the line when Klitschko and Anthony Joshua clash at Wembley Stadium on April 29 and Fury has warned his rivals he is determined to regain his belts in the months to come.

He added: “Keep my belts warm guys as they belong to the king. Whoever got my belts I’m coming for you! Big or small.”

Joshua is priced at 1.44 to secure a victory against Klitschko, who is available at 2.80, while the draw is on offer at 26.00.
