Tyson Fury To Make In-Ring Return On June 9 In Manchester

Tyson Fury announces his June comeback to boxing with promoter Frank Warren.

Following his Cardiff victory, Joshua holds the same belts (WBA, IBF, WBO) as Fury did when he upset Klitschko nearly three years ago.

After his unexpected victory over Wladimir Klitschko in November 2015, the 29 years old briton was cleared to fight again in December by UK Anti-Doping (UKAD) after accepting a backdated two-year ban for testing positive for the banned steroid Nandrolone.

"Until he makes his return to the ring, I can not sit down and wait patiently at home for Tyson Fury's return", Joshua told Sky Sports.

Former world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury says he is fitter than ever after announcing a comeback fight in Manchester on June 9 to end an absence of more than two and a half years. "I'm more confident looking at the competition".

Fury quipped that he could come back, take on a unified champion, land all the heavyweight belts and retire, but a world title fight is clearly some way off.

It would mark almost three years since Fury last stepped inside the ring, when he would beat Wladimir Klitschko for three heavyweight titles in November 2015.

In the aftermath of Fury's win over Klitschko, Fury was stripped of all three of his titles.

"I can't wait to get in there and prove I am the best even after all this time out". The question is whether Fury return to the same form as his last performance or if the layoff has done irreparable damage. I kid you not. Timing, reflexes, everything is better than it's ever been.

"Wilder is top of the tree - he's risky until the last two seconds of the fight", he added.

Tyson Fury odds: Who could he fight next?

Frank Warren has confirmed that issues have virtually been cleared up with the BBBofC, has been cleared to be medically fit, licenced to fight.

Joshua should face Deontay Wilder next as he tries to become the undisputed champion, but if they fail to agree a deal he will fight Russian Alexander Povetkin. "I'm back to reclaim what is rightfully mine". Should a deal be struck, the victor would become the first man to hold all four major heavyweight titles at the same time.
