Fury Plans April Return To The Ring
Former world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury’s new trainer Ben Davison believes that his fighter will show a new side of himself when he returns to the ring.
Following a December hearing by the UK Anti-Doping panel, Fury was cleared to resume his fighting career after agreeing a two-year backdated ban for an anti-doping violation.
On Wednesday morning Fury made it known on Twitter, that he plans to apply for his boxing license with the British Boxing Board of Control.
Applying for my boxing Licance today, will be defending my @ringmagazine title in April,
Can’t wait to get back in the ring.

“Applying for my boxing license today, will be defending my ring magazine title in April. Can’t wait to get back in the ring,” Fury stated on social media.”
Fury became WBA (Super), IBF, WBO and IBO world champion when he beat Ukrainian Wladimir Klitschko in November, 2015 but he has not fought since, but mentioned an April return to the ring.
Davison was brought into the camp after Fury parted ways with his uncle and career trainer Peter Fury.
“He can be himself now and the public will see a different side to him,” Davison told ESPN.
“He is unbeaten and now he can be who he needs to be. He’s a draw anyway now – he hasn’t got to make things big because he’s already big.”
Davison described the perception people have of the 29-year-old Fury outside the ring as unfair.
“He’s a stand-up man and that’s one of the first things I noticed with him. He says what he believes and he sticks to what he believes. He’s a very good man.”
“What the public think of him isn’t the real Tyson Fury. With the time he’s had away from the sport and what he’s gone through in his personal life, it’s given him a different light and he’s there where he wants to be.”
