Fury Comeback: Where Are You Tyson

Fury Talks The Talk, But When Will We See Him Walk The Walk Again?

By

At the end of 2015, Tyson Fury was on top of the world. He went over to Germany and tore the WBA, WBO, IBF, IBO and the lineal title away from the decade-long champion, Wladimir Klitschko. It wasn't the most exciting heavyweight fight you'll ever see. But that isn't the point. We all know Tyson was forced to relinquish the belts he had worked his whole career to achieve. His mental health and personal problems, as well as his license suspension, are well documented. 

Now, Mr. Fury likes to take to social media to express his views and has taken aim at the man who has since gone onto claim Fury's titles in his absence. As well as the brash heavyweight champion from across the pond. 

I have long said that the heavyweight division NEEDS Tyson Fury. In my personal opinion, he is the most skilled boxer in the division. But when will we see 'The Gypsy King' back in the ring again? With a fight between Joshua and Wilder looking ever likely and will Dillian Whyte and Alexander Povetkin seemingly looking at taking hold of most of the mandatory spots. It could be a painful reality that we may not see Tyson Fury in the title picture for another 12 months at least.

It certainly seems like Anthony Joshua will not sit around and wait for his phone to ring from Fury's team. He told Sky Sports earlier today 

"After the Klitschko fight, that was a guy I called out to challenge me straight away and I still mention it now," Joshua told Sky Sports News.

"There is no denying Tyson knows how to box. He is a good boxer. 

"But until he makes his return to the ring, I cannot sit down and wait patiently at home for Tyson Fury's return. I have a career and goals I want to achieve so I am focusing on what I am doing.

"When he gets himself together…. boxing fans are awaiting his return.

"He has to get himself back in action and worry about what he is doing, rather than sitting at home commentating on my fights.

"He should be getting a bit of motivation and hunger back in the belly to get training and get back in the ring because realistically people don't want to see a commentator. They want to see a fighter fight."

It is fair to say that no one expects Tyson to take on a top ten heavyweight on his return. But one thing is for certain, the division isn't hanging around waiting for him to come back.
