Tyson Fury said he would be returning to the ring for his first fight, June 9 with a yet unconfirmed opponent at the Manchester Arena after a two-and- a half years hiatus.
Tyson who until his suspension remained unbeaten has not boxed since ending Wladimir Klitschko’s reign as world champion in November 2015.
He was stripped of the IBF belt, and relinquished the WBA and WBO versions following his mental health issues.
The former heavyweight champion recently accepted a backdated ban from UK Anti-Doping Agency which ended last December, and has successfully reapplied for his license with the British Boxing Board of Control, paving the way for a comeback.
The three titles once held by Fury now belong to Anthony Joshua, who has won seven fights since his rival last competed, unifying the belts against Joseph Parker last month.
Joshua is aiming to go one better by claiming Deontay Wilder’s WBC title.
