Former heavyweight boxing champion of the world Tyson Fury has suggested he is close to rubberstamping his return to the ring.

The 29-year-old revealed this week that he is close to announcing a ‘massive, massive deal’.

The self-appointed Gypsy King, who is from Morecambe and trained in Lancaster, has been out of the ring since defeating Wladimir Klitschko in Dusseldorf in November 2015.

Fury has since surrendered the WBO, WBA and IBF belts he won that night amid self-confessed problems with drugs and depression.

But he is expected to contest multiple fights in 2018 as he bids to return to the top of the heavyweight division.

Noticeably slimmer, Fury said: “Any time now, I’m about to announce a massive, massive deal so you all better wait for this,.

“I’m really looking forward to getting in there, back under the lights and doing what I do best which is entertaining. The future’s big, the future’s bright, the future’s Fury.”
