Tyson Fury is Unsure if His Ring Return Will Ever Happen

BOXING fans have suggested Tyson Fury’s long-awaited comeback could be over before it has begun after making a worrying confession during his latest TV interview.

The self-styled Gypsy King has not been seen in action since dethroning former undisputed unified heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko in November 2015, ballooning to more than 26 stone in weight while living a carefree lifestyle.

After beating Klitschko, Fury (25-0, 18 KOs) was forced to vacate the WBA (Super), WBO and IBO belts following a period of inactivity and a series of well-documented personal issues.

But the 28-year-old announced his return to the sport earlier this year, sending fans into a frenzy by posting frequent videos of himself working out in the gym.

Claiming to be motivated by the prospect of reclaiming his crown from the likes of Anthony Joshua and Joseph Parker, Fury appeared to be set on losing the weight and getting back in the ring.

But in a recent interview with Box Nation, the Manchester man seemed a little less sure of his future.

“My time was two years ago,” he said.

“If I come back there will be an announcement but if I don’t then goodbye.

“For this game, you’ve gotta really love it and want it – you’ve gotta be very, very hungry.

“I’m undefeated – second in history of heavyweight champions to retire unbeaten behind Rocky Marciano.

“I’ve unified the full division, beat the man who couldn’t be beaten – do I need to do any more?”

Earlier this year, he revealed that promoter Eddie Hearn had reserved a date at Wembley Stadium in anticipation of a lucrative showdown between himself and Anthony Joshua.
