After over two years out of the game, Tyson Fury is on his way back into professional boxing.

His last fight in the four-cornered ring came against Wladimir Klitschko in Dusseldorf, with the Gypsy King winning on points back in 2015.

However, personal issues and accusations of doping saw him stripped of his belts.

During his troubled time, Fury's fitness took a turn for the worst but now, he appears to be on the right road, shifting a hell of a lot his weight and targeting a triumphant return to the ring.

A lot of people have been speculating who he will take on first upon his return, with rumours suggesting that Fury may have to take part in some 'warm-up fights' in order to rebuild his form.

Well, that's what everyone thought, everyone apart from Fury himself.

Turns out, the Gypsy King has a huge, huge plan for his return, one which would make his first fight back in the ring one of the biggest in the history of the sport.

Why? Because he's taken to Twitter to call out none other Anthony Joshua. However, this is not any old call out, because he has specified that he wants the 2012 Olympic champion to be his first fight.

Brave is the word that springs to mind.


Fury has also pinned the tweet to his personal account, suggesting that this is not in the heat of the moment, he really wants to dethrone Joshua as soon as possible.

Whether this means he is willing to abide by Eddie Hearn's rules is another matter, but it would be safe to assume so.

Joshua was all set to take on Joseph Parker in March but Fury's latest call out may throw a spanner in the works.
