Tyson Fury’s recent picture suggests his return to boxing ring is getting closer

Former unified World Boxing Association (WBA), International Boxing Federation (IBF), World Boxing Organisation (WBO), International Boxing Organisation (IBO), Ring magazine, and lineal heavyweight champion Tyson Fury’s new pictures from the gym show that he is getting closer to the boxing ring.

Fury was banned after testing positive for the use of cocaine in 2015, and was banned from fighting with immediate effect.

Fury’s professional boxing license was also suspended back in 2016.

In January earlier this year, Fury announced on his official Twitter account that he is ready to return to professional boxing and that he will be reapplying for the license to British Boxing Board of Control.

Fury later announced in an interview that he has been granted the license once again, but on the condition that he has to provide his timely medical reports.

Amateur boxer Campbell Hatton, who is the son of Ricky, shared the picture of Fury on his official Twitter account on Thursday, where the 29-year-old looked to be inching closer to a return to the boxing ring.

Fury last fought two-time world heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko in 2015, which means he will be rather rusty and short of match practice on his return to professional boxing.

In his absence, Fury’s countryman Anthony Joshua now holds the WBA, IBF, IBO, and WBO world heavyweight titles.

Joshua, recently after beating Joseph Parker, hits back at the criticism from Fury, and urged him to return to action instead of sitting and talking about his performances.

“There is no denying Tyson knows how to box. He is a good boxer,” said Joshua per Sky Sports News.

“But until he makes his return to the ring, I cannot sit down and wait patiently at home for Tyson Fury’s return. I have a career and goals I want to achieve so I am focusing on what I am doing.

“When he gets himself together…. boxing fans are awaiting his return. He has to get himself back in action and worry about what he is doing, rather than sitting at home commentating on my fights.”

He added: “He should be getting a bit of motivation and hunger back in the belly to get training and get back in the ring because realistically people don’t want to see a commentator. They want to see a fighter fight.”
