Tyson Fury has announced when he will return to the ring

He hasn't fought since November 2015

He’s decisive and entertaining, and now we know when he’s coming back.

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.

That may be set to change though after it was revealed that the 29-year-old had signed with Frank Warren in a deal which will see him fight in the Manchester Arena on June 9.

Who will his opponent be? That we don’t know. Fury has spoken at length about his desire to face unified world heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua, but with Joshua looking increasingly likely to face Deontay Wilder in the coming months, that may not be possible just yet.

Fury’s decision to sign up with Warren comes two weeks after Joshua urged him to sign with Matchroom Boxing – the promotion run by Eddie Hearn – in a bid to negotiate a fight.

While Fury’s decision indicates a long-awaited bout between the two remains but a pipe dream for now, the Gypsy King’s temperament would suggest that he won’t stop until he gets the fight he wants.

Fury also couldn’t resist a dig at Joshua upon announcing his return.
