Tyson Fury has announced his first fight in over two-and-a-half years out of the ring, for June 9 against an unconfirmed opponent.

Fury has not stepped into the ring, since his 2015 win against Klitschko, taking the WBA, WBO and IBF belts.

He was stripped of the IBF belts after doping issues and vacated his other belts due to mental health problems.

The Gypsy King served a suspended UKAD doping ban, which ended in December and has applied for a boxing licence with the British Boxing Board of Control.

Fury is eager to come back and win back his belts, which Joshua now holds.

“It’s going to be an easy fight, no contest,” Fury said about facing Joshua. “He is looking for one punch all night. Anybody who can move a little bit, and throw feints, he struggles with. He can’t land.

 

“I’ve got a tip for him – get a handful of rice and throw it at me, if he wants to land anything. I’d outbox him for a few rounds then knock him out. He’s not the hardest man in the world to hit. He’s smaller than I am, and I don’t believe he holds the best shot.

 

“I’m the fittest I’ve ever been. Timing, reflexes, everything is better than it’s ever been. I kid you not.

 

“Everything is still there – 29 years old, coming into the prime of my life, I’m stronger and faster, holding more muscle mass than ever. I’m more confident looking at the competition.”
