Tyson Fury announces return, plans 'three big fights' for 2018

As the British Boxing Board of Control and the UK Anti-Doping Agency drag their heels on a ruling, Fury had already stated his intention to be licensed by an alternative organization and now says a return is on the card this spring.

FORMER world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury claims he will return to the ring next April and has targeted three fights in 2018. Fury was at ringside last month when his cousin Hughie Fury came up short in his bid to take the WBO heavyweight title from champion Joseph Parker in Manchester.

Fury's license was revoked in October 2016 after allegations of doping, and over the past year he has regularly switched between seemingly being content in his semi-retirement and appearing to be itching to get back in the ring. He also added that he meant to fight again at the end of the year.

But on Thursday, he wrote on social media he would "be ready to fight in April 2018 in a great fight".

He has not fought for almost two years since ending Wladimir Klitschko's world heavyweight title reign in Dusseldorf in November 2015. "Three big fights in 2018".

It should be noted that Fury has not fought since defeating Wladimir Klitschko in November 2015 to bag the WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO titles. The fight was postponed until September but was again cancelled due to Fury being "medically unfit".
