Tyson Fury made his first public appearance since announcing his intention to come out of retirement in 2018.

The 29-year-old - who was stripped of IBF, IBO, WBA and WBO belts he won after beating Wladimir Klitschko following a failed drugs test - is already chasing fights against Deontay Wilder and Anthony Joshua.

Tyson ‘Gypsy King’ Fury hasn’t stepped foot in the ring since defeating Klitschko in Germany two years ago - and fans have been very pleased to see him finally get back in the gym over the last few days.

With 20 fights and 20 knockouts under his belt, Joshua will likely seek unification bouts with Joseph Parker and Deontay Wilder before potentially stepping in the ring with Fury, in what is already being billed as "the biggest fight in British boxing history."

Promoter Eddie Hearn urged Fury to work hard on his fitness in order to set up a meeting with the 28-year-old Londoner.

"You talk about AJ versus [Deontay] Wilder but it's nowhere as big as AJ against Fury.

"That is a fight that can be built into something huge. Two completely different characters, two completely different styles, two undefeated heavyweights, two unified champions. An incredible match up.

"But Tyson needs to get back on the horse, and show the British public he's still serious, show the British public that he is here and back in the game. But, that doesn't come on social media it comes from being in the gym and getting through the ropes."

Fury chats with Chisora

Dereck Chisora is set to challenge Agit Kabayel for the European heavyweight title on Saturday night and the duo were tracked down in a casino.

Fury, who has twice defeated Chisora, answered some questions whilst also flaunting his excess weight in front of the 33-year-old.

iFL TV caught up with the two boxers in Monaco and found American ring announcer Michael Buffer alongside them.

Buffer claimed Fury v Joshua "would be the biggest fight ever." - Fury's response, seen in the video below, was magnificent.

Fury went on to note that he had trimmed down for fights like this eight or nine times before, adding that he'd already lost two stone after stopping drinking for a few days.
