Nobody has a clue if or when Tyson Fury will return to boxing after his lengthy absence from the sport.

The former heavyweight champion, who hasn’t fought since defeating Wladimir Klitschko in November 2015, is still trying to get his boxing licence back after it was withdrawn over a failed drugs test.

UK Anti-Doping postponed their hearing over Fury’s case in May and is yet to announce another date, prompting Fury to write a passionate message on Twitter earlier this month.

"How long must I be held up and kept out of action?” the Gypsy King wrote.

"Clear my name and let me return to my former glory. I'm innocent, set me free!"

Fury has been called out by heavyweight

Fury won’t be short of options should he ever return to the sport. A bout with Anthony Joshua has been mentioned and he’s also been called out by former heavyweight champion Shannon Briggs on Instagram.

Briggs, 45, has delivered a series of message on social media calling out Fury, including writing an open letter to the Brit.

“Where y’all train at? I wanna talk about a fight for the ages,” the American wrote. “Two big sicko’s going at it. The comeback of comebacks.

“What’s stopping us from scrapping Champ?”

Check out the series of incredible posts below.

Briggs even wrote an open letter

Briggs showed his desperation in the open letter in which he proposed a fight “for those who may be clinically insane or slightly maladjusted”.

“I was reading Frank Warren’s online column today and the veteran promoter struck a nerve with his stance on the unfair treatment former world champ and colourful character Tyson Fury is getting from UK boxing authorities.

“Now doing the Limbo can be an amusing dance but living in Limbo, a boxing purgatory is no fun at all.

“Being prevented from making a living is odious and that is why I now propose a match for those who may be clinically insane or slightly maladjusted.”

It’s not Fury vs Joshua but we’ll take it just to see Fury back in the ring.
