Boxing at Manchester Arena

In the world of boxing, the name everyone seems to be talking about is Tyson Fury.

The "Gypsy King", as he calls himself, has certainly had quite a journey in the sport.

From rising to the top, to getting injured, and then having his boxing licence taken away, Fury is looking for a road to redemption.

Now, he has his chance.

The ban on Fury's boxing licence has been lifted, and in his scheduled return to the ring, there is a favourite to face him.

Though he has made it clear he wants Anthony Joshua, the odds of that happening, according to Paddy Power, are slim to none.

The online betting website says that the best odds for Fury's return fight is Shannon Briggs, with the odds of that happening standing at 2/1, as of this article.

Joshua, on the other hand, is at the other end of the spectrum. The odds of that being Fury's return is are currently 33/1. Safe to say an outside bet.

Briggs was slightly ahead of David Price and Dominic Breazeale in odds, as they were 5/1 and 8/1 respectively.

Those wanting to see Fury vs Joshua shouldn't give up hope yet, however.

There is a 10/1 chance that Joshua and Fury could clash by the end of the year, and even more, the odds are 2/1 that if it's not this year, it will definitely be next year. 

No doubt about it, the boxing world is anxious to see Fury back in the ring, but they'll be holding their breath as well.

He has a long way to go to get back to the pedestal he once stood on. If he can stay focused and channel his energy in good places, he will be on top and then some.

Whatever happens, with Tyson Fury, you just know it will be entertaining.
