Tyson Fury: Former world heavyweight champion to make comeback on 9 June

Tyson Fury, who is undefeated in 25 professional fights, will fight at Manchester ArenaFormer world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury will return to boxing on 9 June in Manchester for his first fight since 2015 against a yet unnamed opponent.Fury, 29, has not fought since claiming the IBF, WBA and WBO world titles from Wladimir Klitschko in November 2015.He was suspended in 2016 amid "anti-doping and medical issues" and accepted a backdated two-year ban in December.
However, he had his licence reinstated earlier this year and has now signed with promoter Frank Warren.
Joshua and Fury share more than a rivalry
Fury first fought as a professional in December 2008 and has won all 25 of his pro bouts, but has been out of action for more than two years.Since he last fought, fellow Briton Anthony Joshua has taken the IBF, IBO, WBA and WBO world heavyweight titles, while unbeaten American Deontay Wilder holds the WBC belt.After beating Joseph Parker to win the WBO title on 31 March, Joshua said: "I want Wilder. Or Fury. Get him [Wilder] in the ring and I'll knock him spark out."The WBA has since ordered Joshua to begin negotiations with Russia's mandatory challenger Povetkin.But the Londoner says he would prefer to fight Wilder next.
