After two-and-a-half years since he won the unified heavyweight championship, Tyson Fury is ready to make a return to the ring.

It was confirmed at a press conference this afternoon that Fury, 29, has inked a deal which will see him fight under Frank Warren's promotional banner on both BT Sport and BoxNation.

"The Mac is back and he's ready to take the world back", he said. Tyson Fury hasn't boxed since his victory over Wladimir Klitschko back in November 2015. That UKAD case ended in December when the fighter accepted a backdated two-year doping ban for elevated levels of nandrolone in urine samples.

Tickets for Fury's long-awaited comeback fight will be available to purchase via the Manchester Arena on www.mancheser-arena.com and tel: 0844 847 8000 from 2.00pm today. Fury, who was born of Irish Traveller heritage and refers to himself as the "Gypsy King", was asked by media members whether his wild days are behind him. My timing and my reflexes are better than they've ever been.

"I had a lot of sewing of my royal oats to do", Fury said.

By January, Fury had reportedly lost close to four stone in weight, and plenty more has fallen off since as evidenced by a picture uploaded to Instagram by "The Hitman" earlier this week.

"In terms of history, I think that this fight has to happen because it wouldn't be great for this era of boxing if it doesn't happen".

"I'm the fittest that I've ever been". If he wants to fight ten fights down the line, he can do that as well, ' the IBF, WBA and WBO champion said.

However, Fury will have to wait for his shot at Joshua, who is targeting a blockbuster unification bout with fellow unbeaten world champion Deontay Wilder, who holds the WBC heavyweight belt.

"All of the current Heavyweight Champions out there are very vulnerable and very beatable".
