Shocker: Tyson Fury announces sensational May 13 comeback

Former unified heavyweight king Tyson Fury has informed the boxing world of his return in sensational and unexpected news revealed on Monday.

The 28 year-old, who has been inactive since November 2015 when upsetting Wladimir Klitschko in Germany, says details of his May 13 return will be clarified soon.

Since Fury has been away, the top division titles have been split up, with New Zealander Joseph Parker and British rival Anthony Joshua benefitting from the former champion’s decision to take a break.

A rematch with Klitschko remains contracted, although the Ukrainian is scheduled to fight Joshua for three title belts a fortnight before Fury competes for the first time in a year and a half.

It’s anyone’s guess who Fury will face as the only world ruler without an opponent at the current time is Deontay Wilder and the American seems a highly unlikely foe given the amount of time the outspoken and undefeated Brit has been on hiatus.

Possibly a warm-up for something bigger is in the offing as Fury attempts to regain a foothold in the ranks after something of a fall from grace when ending Klitschko’s amazing decade of dominance.

A win over a top fifteen rated contender would potentially set Fury up for a world title bid in late 2017 should he wish to go down that route.
