Trainer: Fury To Return In April
In an interview with BBC Sport, Peter Fury claims his nephew, Tyson will return to the ring in 2018.
The last time Fury stepped into a ring was in November of 2015, when he would capture the WBO, IBF, IBO, WBA heavyweight titles in a unanimous decision victory against Wladimir Klitschko.
Since that night in Germany, Fury would have two attempted rematches against Klitschko be cancelled, and following the second postponement, Fury would indicate in an interview that he was suffering from both mental health and substance abuse issues.
Once the revelation of the substance abuse issues (including habitual cocaine use) came to light, the British Board Of Control would strip Fury of his license. Fury also needs to settle an ongoing issue with the UK Anti-doping board, as they claim Fury failed a test in 2015, and this is also prohibiting the return of his boxing license.
All of that withstanding, Fury is motivated to return, especially against Anthony Joshua who has been feuding with Fury on social media.
Peter Fury, the trainer and uncle of the British boxer claims that Fury will be back by April of the coming year, and that Joshua is the main target.
“The only fear is that Joshua doesn’t get beat beforehand. That’s the fight the public want to see, that’s the fight Tyson really wants… And he really thinks that’s the fight that should be made.”
When Peter Fury spoke with his fighter, he says Tyson indicated to him that he was not impressed with any of the current heavyweights and believes he can beat any of them.
“I don’t think so [that Tyson rates any of them highly], no,” Peter Fury said.
