Tyson Fury Steps Up Efforts To Return With MTK Global Deal

By Elliot Foster

Tyson Fury has inked an advisory deal as he looks to step up his efforts to return to the ring.

The former unified world heavyweight champion, 29, has been out of the ring since beating Wladimir Klitschko in Germany back in November 2015.

Fury (25-0, 18 KOs) currently has a UK Anti-Doping hearing hanging over him, with a hearing set for December, and is without a British Boxing Board of Control licence.


But he will be hoping to get that resolved as soon as possible before getting his career back on track under the guidance of MTK Global with whom he has signed.

“I couldn’t be happier to sign an advisory deal with MTK Global,” Fury, the Ring Magazine champion, said when the news was confirmed.

“It is unbelievable how fast they have grown and how much they have achieved over the past few years.”

Fury is back in training and getting his weight down ahead of what he is calling a big 2018.

“I love boxing and I need it back in my life,” he added. “Right now I’m working hard to shift some weight and re-enter the ring in good shape. That won’t take me long and then I’ll be looking for my next opponent in early 2018.”

Anthony Joshua, Deontay Wilder and Joseph Parker are the three reigning supreme in the sport’s premier division at the moment, but Fury is keen to be unleashed on them.

“There are plenty of options for me. Everyone wants to get into the ring for a payday with me. So we’ll sit down and decide who we choose but everyone knows the fights I really want.

“I want to knock Anthony Joshua out and I want to knock out Deontay Wilder and I believe by the time those fights happen they’ll be to unify the division.”

MTK say they are “honoured” that Fury has chosen them to guide the next stage of his career, adding that this will be “the most exciting phase of his illustrious career.”

[QUOTE=Vinnykin;18243867]This man was the guy responsible for beating Klitschko and making HW boxing relevant again. AJ would not have won the IBF, and Parker would not have a WBO world title if Fury hadn't gone to Germany and won. Lineal…
