Our weekly round up of this week's biggest new tours, shows and events.
After being out of action for almost two-and-a-half years, Tyson Fury has today announced that he will be returning to the ring. This will be his first fight since his World Title fight win against Wladimir Klitschko in November 2015 at the Esprit Arena in Düsseldorf, Germany. Where he famously sang I Don’t Want To Miss A Thing by Aerosmith after the fight.
Fury has signed with Frank Warren Boxing and will be announcing his opponent in “due course”. Following a press conference that happened earlier today, Tyson Fury noted that he has worked through his mental health problems and has come out stronger on the other side. The fighter also stated that he will not be bringing any negativity into this fight and will most likely be entering the ring to Return Of The Mack by Mark Morrison.
Check out the announcement video below:
The comeback bout is set to take place at Manchester Arena on 9 June and will give Tyson a chance to improve his already stellar record of 25 fights, 25 wins, 0 losses (18 of those wins being by way of knockout). The 6 ft 9 orthodox boxer has always been known for his larger than life personality, boxing fans can expect to be incredibly entertained by Fury’s antics on the night and in the build-up to this fight.
