Tyson Fury is Reportedly Closing a Deal With Frank Warren

According to Press Association, Tyson Fury has agreed a promotional deal with Frank Warren.

The former world heavyweight champion has been preparing to return since January, when the suspension on his boxing licence was lifted.

He last fought in November 2015 when he traveled to Germany to outpoint Wladimir Klitschko in a major upset to win the IBF, IBO, WBA and WBO titles, and is expected to return in the summer after a near three-year absence.

Fury was seen on Friday at the BT Sport building in London, where he is understood to have finalised an agreement to fight under Warren on both BT Sport and BoxNation.

The 29-year-old had been scheduled to fight Klitschko in a rematch on BoxNation in 2016, before his struggles with drugs and depression and a charge from UK Anti-Doping led to his withdrawal and his inactivity since.

The drug testing agency claimed the boxer tested positive for a banned substance in early 2015, but Fury accepted a backdated two-year ban from UKAD in December and since January has been training to reduce his weight in anticipation of his return.

He first announced his intention to make a ring return in the fall of last year.

By working with Warren and new trainer Ben Davison, he will also have formed a new team having won his world titles with Mick Hennessy, who still promotes Fury’s cousin Hughie, and uncle and then-trainer Peter.

Suggestions persist that Fury’s first fight back could be on the undercard of Carl Frampton’s fight against Nonito Donaire in Belfast on April 21, or on that of long-term friend Billy Joe Saunders’ WBO middleweight title defence against Martin Murray in London on June 23.

Press Association Sport reports that Fury is instead likely to top a bill in Manchester, where he was born. The outlet made attempts to contact both Warren and Fury, but neither were available for comment.

Yeah I'm interested in who they match him with. They'll need to be on the phone to Haye's matchmaker who found those two shockers Haye fought in his comeback who had unfathomably good records. He needs a big lump he…
