Tyson Fury Not Rushing Into Fights Upon Return

Tyson Fury has made it clear that when he returns in 2018, he isn’t going to rush into major fights.

Fury reached an agreement with UK Anti-Doping on December 11th, where Fury would accept a two year suspension retroactive to his failed 2015 PED test.

Fury has been out of the ring since November of 2015, when he traveled over to Germany to pull off a shocking upset with a twelve round decision over Wladimir Klitschko to capture the heavyweight crown.

In January, Fury stands to reclaim his boxing license, when the British Board of Control hold a meeting on the matter.

Fury lost his license last year, when he admitted in an interview to having issues with recreational drugs and alcohol.

Fury is back in training, losing weight, and looks forward to fresh start in 2018.

A litany of fighters prior and after Fury’s agreement with UKAD, have been calling him out to fight.

It won’t be that easy, as Fury is looking to take his time and not rush his comeback. He wants to take a few tuneups first, to shake off more than two years of ring rust. While Fury is full of bravado upon his return to the sport, he more than likely will hold off on Eddie Hearn’s recent suggestion to make his ring return against Dillian Whyte.

“I’m inspired to get back. I always thought I’d be able to fight again. It was devastating mentally,” Fury explained to The Telegraph.

“I felt like I’d reached my Everest when I beat Wladimir Klitschko to claim the world title, but now I’m motivated again. I won’t be forced into fighting these elite, hard guys until I’m fully fit.

“I’m not a silly man. I won’t be rushed back, because one punch can change everything in a heavyweight fight.”
