Fury called the date of his return to the ring

Tyson Fury will make his long-awaited comeback on June 9 against an unnamed opponent at the Manchester Arena.

Since the 29-year-old last fought, his fellow Briton Joshua has become the biggest star of the sport and holds Fury's old WBA, IBF and WBO titles. Fury has been preparing to return since January after his suspension on his boxing licence was lifted by British Boxing Board of Control.

"He is a belt carrier for me", Fury said.

Kevin Barry drew an applause for Fury after he paid tribute to the heavyweight fighter.

Joshua is aiming to go one better by claiming Deontay Wilder's WBC title, and told Sky Sports this week: "We offered them a lucrative deal and we are just waiting to hear if he's serious or not".

Warren said Fury would need "three or four fights" before being ready to take on the best in the business.

Warren also said: "Until anyone beats Fury they can not rightfully call themselves the world heavyweight champion because he didn't lose his titles in the ring". I'm not hungry for fame, or money, or belts, because I've got all that, I've had it all in the past, and it didn't really make me very happy. I don't rate him at all against me.

New research finds link between concussion and dementia
Dementia remained relatively rare: only 4.7 percent of study participants developed dementia at all, a total of 126,734 people. Research involving three million people shows traumatic brain injury increases the risk of dementia by 24% over 36 years.

Though the fitness side of Fury's comeback is very much still a working progress, significant improvement has seen him prove doubters wrong and get into a position to re-ignite what has been so far, a ideal professional career.

"Within a couple of fights I will have won the world title back, 100 per cent".

"We are all looking forward to seeing Tyson conquer the world again as he begins his climb back to the top of boxing's marquee division".

He said at a press conference in London: "I've got to congratulate the fella, he's done very well".

Since Fury last fought, Joshua has become boxing's biggest star and now holds Fury's old WBA, IBF and WBO titles.

But Fury was soon stripped of the IBF belt, and relinquished the WBA and WBO versions amid mental health issues.
