Tyson Fury is back and he’s ready to dominate the world of boxing once again.

The former heavyweight world champion hasn’t fought since beating Wladimir Klitschko in November 2015 but tweeted earlier this week that he’s set to return to the ring.

Fury has planned to return on May 13, although his comeback depends on the result of his UK Anti-Doping hearing and whether the boxing authorities reinstate his licence.

He was stripped of his three world titles last year when he failed a dug test after taking cocaine but aims to restore some pride when he returns to the sport.

But before he does that, if seems Fury has a lot of hard work to do

A recent image emerged of Fury in a kebab shop with him looking rather overweight.

And he has since taken to Twitter to reveal just how overweight he actually is.

On Friday, he posted: "Talk about being a fat man, I'm 25stones or 350lbs, but getting the weight off has never been a problem! Ask @peterfury we done it 24 times.”

25 stone!?

To put that into context, Tony Bellew - who was mocked for his physique ahead of his fight with David Haye - weighed just over 15 stone ahead of his heavyweight clash.

But Fury believes he’s won the biggest battle in his clash after overcoming depression and believes losing weight will be easy compared to that.

He tweeted: "I've moved on from the dark &scary place I've been living & if I can beat depression then I can beat anything! The hardest fight of my life!”

But how is Fury planning on losing all of that weight? By jogging to begin with, it seems.

He posted another image after going for a jog which read: "Just finished a lovely run, great to be back”.

It’s going to take quite a number of runs for Fury to get back into shape but hopefully he’s fit enough to take to the ring once against in May - although the opponent is yet to be confirmed.
