Shocker: Tyson Fury admits he’s clueless regarding BBBofC ruling, puts AJ ring return in doubt

WBN 04/11/2017

Former world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury admitted he is clueless as to when he might be able to return to a UK ring again.

Despite being linked to a massive showdown with Anthony Joshua and turning up to a promotion involving Eddie Hearn, Fury says his impending future is unknown.

“To be honest, it’s not really (a stumbling block), everything is going really well. So far, so good. I’m looking forward to getting back,” Fury initially told Andy Scott of Sky Sports before saying, “The Board’s gonna do what the Board is gonna do, I know they’ll make the right decision.

“There’s not much more I can say. I don’t know much more than anyone else. I only know what I see in the papers – anyway, because that’s as far as it’s along so far.”

With uncertainty apparent that he can even step foot between the ropes, Fury still vowed to be the number one heavyweight again in no time at all.

“In twelve months time, I’ll be back on top of the world. I’m only two men away from being the dominant fighter of my era,” said the 28 year-old.

“I gave all these guys an opportunity to fight for belts and I don’t get any credit for that (beating Wladimir Klitschko). I opened up the whole division.

“They doubted me in Germany, they doubted me every single time and I’m sure they are gonna doubt me again.

“I can’t wait. I’m back – the return of the mack,” added Fury.

The plan is for Fury to be fighting again in the first half of 2018, although without a BBBofC license it’s hard to imagine the one-time king being allowed anywhere near Joshua next year.
