Fury Back And Ready For His Return
Fury back and ready for his return to the ring after nearly three years out of the ring.
Tyson Fury has been missing in action since November 2015 when he beat Wladimir Klitschko. He now says he is ready to come to the ring on June 9th to face Albanian Sefer Seferi.
” I could probably fight this weekend. It’s been a long time coming: I’ve been out for a long time. My ambition is to get into the ring again, under those lights.” Said an elated Fury, underlining his determination to make a comeback.
In his last fight in 2015, Fury (25-0, 18 knockouts) was crowned the unified WBA (Super), IBF, WBO, IBO, Ring magazine and lineal heavyweight champion.
After failing to honour a mandatory fight against Vyacheslav Glazkov, he was stripped of his IBF title. As if to compound his misfortunes, Fury was had to vacate the WBA, WBO, IBO titles. Having failed a medical investigation and personal ground as well as failure to meet Klitschko for a rematch.
Fury’s ban by the British Boxing Board of Control was lifted in January this year, and he is ready to show that he has been building up to something.
He told Sky Sports;“I told them recently I want to get some baby oil on – shining, glistening, looking the part, I’ve lifted a few weights now – I used to call Joshua a ‘bodybuilder’, but I’m starting to look like a bodybuilder now.”
Eyes On Fury
His stipulated comeback might entail four to three fights as his promoter Frank Warren says. Among the boxers, Fury is eyeing is England’s high rated fighter Antony Joshua and American Deontay Wilder, who is the WBC heavyweight champion.
Fury says that he is ready to stop Wilder at all cost. “Whatever happens in his career,” Said Fury, “ I want to fight him because we’ve got unfinished business. I’ll stop him, all 15 stone of him.”
Fury has lost eight stone, looked trim and focused as he prepares for challenges such as Joshua and Wilder.
“I don’t need to send any more messages – they know the message, and the message is I’m back.”Said Fury said. “It’s not about how you perform against your next opponent because every opponent is different. I’m going to get in there and enjoy myself and just enjoy my comeback.”
By the time Fury became the unified heavyweight champion, Joshua was laying the foundation for his heavyweight career. Joshua’s career has been shooting north while Fury’s stagnated.
He is said to have undergone more than 300 rounds of furious sparring though which he has demonstrated an admirable ability. His comeback, therefore, might be opening up to a new phase in his career.
“I feel better by the day, and I’ve never felt better than I do now – I’m faster, sharper and I’ve got more power. It’s no secret that when I was world champion, I fell out of love with the game but now we’re back in a relationship, and we’re going to spice it up.”
Seferi, 39, will provide Fury with a fertile ground to weigh his skills. Seferi has boxed in 24 fights, showing immense power with 21 wins. Fury said of him: “I picked him because he’s tough and strong, he’s got a lion’s heart, and he will come to win.”
What Fury does with the opportunities ahead remains to be seen.
