The furious one Tyson ‘The Gypsy King’ Fury has taken to social media to announce he will be returning to the ring to take back what is rightfully his. He has stated he will be looking to return on the 13th May but no opponent has been announced.
It’s no secret the problems the undefeated former unified world heavyweight champion has faced outside the ring have been pretty dark. Subject to extreme media interrogation and constant abuse from the people who never understood him, Fury admitted battling with depression and turned to drugs and alcohol in a very sad state of affairs.
Tyson Fury last laced up his boots in November of 2015 when he done the unthinkable. He faced heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko over in Germany with all the odds stacked against him. Klitschko had been undefeated for over 10 years and Fury was expected to turn up and be blown over.
The 6ft9 undefeated Brit scored one of the biggest upsets for a British fighter and walked away with the WBA, WBO, IBF, The Ring & Lineal belts. Becoming the unified heavyweight champion of the world is arguably the most prestigious status in all of sport, however for Fury it was not to be.

Fury admitted he could not understand why everybody was so against him after becoming what every man could only dream of achieving. He had just become the face of boxing and the media would not allow him to reap the rewards of his hard work.
He was constantly in the limelight for the wrong reasons. Questionable choices of things he had said and done ultimately led to the downfall of Tyson’s physical and mental state. Fury pulled out of his rematch with Wladimir Klitschko due to an ankle injury he sustained whilst partying at the Euro football games in a club with fans.
He then ballooned up in weight and admitted he struggles with drugs and alcohol as a way of coping with his depression. He did various interviews stating he wasn’t bothered about living anymore and if it wasn’t for his family and kids he wouldn’t be around.
Tyson Fury is the most controversial, yet talented fighter in the heavyweight division at the moment. If you don’t like what Tyson Fury stands for, and what Tyson Fury does for boxing, then you don’t understand the sport as well as you think you do.
You can be a walking advertising board, a robotic man who is programmed by the media into super-stardom with hundreds of thousands of people wanting you to win. Or you can be yourself, with the world against you and the mainstream media networks trying to shut you down and you can still be the best man on the planet.
Tyson Fury is what the sport needs, and without him the heavyweight division goes back to a tiresome and boring division. Once Anthony Joshua v Wladimir Klitschko is over, who really is likely to pick up where Fury left off? Wilder has no intention of fighting anyone with a top 5 world ranking.
