Tyson Fury-Gonzalo Omar Basile on February 15th

It has been announced that heavyweight contender Tyson Fury (21-0, 15KOs) will return to the ring against current IBF Latino & WBC Latino champion Gonzalo Omar Basile (61-8, 28KOs) on February 15th at The Copper Box Arena in London. Basile is big but very susceptible to power punchers, as he was knocked out in four rounds by Artur Szpilka in 2012.

Fury has been inactive since knocking out Steve Cunningham last April in New York City. Two scheduled dates to face former champion David Haye fell through when the Hayemaker withdrew with injuries.
