"This took a very long time to make happen". The news was confirmed at 1pm today, with a press conference scheduled to be held at 1pm, however, that start time is now running late at the time of publication.
Former world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury is returning to the ring after a doping ban. The pair will once again work together following a brief yet successful relationship in 2014, which saw Fury secure his mandatory position to challenge Wladimir Klitschko by defeating Dereck Chisora in November of 2014.
The Brit, who has not boxed since shocking Wladimir Klitschko in 2015, had been battling drug abuse as well as personal issues.
American TV giants Showtime, who broadcast Joshua and Wilder's fights stateside, have lent their backing to a potential undisputed title fight.
While Fury's name and ability to sell a fight is expected to provide an additional shot in the arm to a division now undergoing a renaissance, questions still linger as to whether he can return physically to his prime form.
Fury mentioned that he has about one more stone to lose in weight before he gets back to his optimal weight for his comeback fight.Читайте также: The Next Level! Uber Now Offers Car Rentals
"There are a few people out there that are claiming to be the world's best and I know for a fact that they're not".
Fury ballooned as high as 378 pounds during his two-year layoff and is hoping to get down as low as 259 pounds for his return.
According to the 29-year-old, Wilder is now No.1 in heavyweight boxing because he can land big punches from all kinds of angles, whereas Joshua doesn't have the agility.
Fury also reiterated that fellow Brit Joshua must step in the ring and beat him if he's to be considered the best heavyweight fighter of the current era.
"Until (other title holders) fight him", Warren said, "they can not consider themselves to be the (true) champion".
