Tyson Fury loves nothing more than keeping boxing fans on their toes.

On so many occasions over the past year the self-proclaimed 'Gypsy King' has hinted at retiring from the sport over doping allegations that saw his license suspended.

But now he's back in the spotlight after making threats to the likes of Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder, suggesting his career is far from over.

Fury has piled on the pounds since his last fight but has vowed to shed weight and get back into the ring in 2018.

He wrote on Twitter earlier this week (see below): "This is the Tyson fury that will be returning next year, with a new style & a new persona & new goals."


A new persona? Not likely.

Fury's return is wholly dependent on whether he can resolve his outstanding issues with the UK Anti-Doping Agency (UKAD) and British Boxing Board of Control (BBBofC).

And should the 29-year-old succeed in his bid to return, it's IBF, WBA and IBO world heavyweight champion Joshua that he wants to fight.

Boxing promoter Eddie Hearn is prepared to help him make the fight happen, too, by telling Sky Sports recently that he will step in and speak to UKAD.

"We would like to help him clear up his stuff with UKAD and start building a schedule that will lead to Anthony Joshua," said Hearn.

AJ and Wilder are very much on Fury's radar and now the Brit has predicted what will happen if he beats them both in the coming years.

Fury believes he will achieve "everlasting glory" by toppling the pair and become the undisputed "dominant heavyweight of my era".

He exclusively told Sky Sports on Friday: "There are only a couple of men that stand between me and everlasting glory.

"If I beat AJ and Wilder that means I'm the dominant heavyweight of my era.

"I don't want to come across big headed, I want to come across accurate and straight to the point. I can't wait. I'm really excited and motivated. I am back. 2018 - Tyson takeover."

Big talk from Fury - but it's hard to disagree with him. Fury has already beaten one heavyweight champion in Wladmir Klitschko recently, so if he conquers AJ and Wilder, who else is there?
