Breaking: Tyson Fury Announces Ring Return
By: Sean Crose
“Breaking news” Tyson Fury tweeted today. “Return of the MAC, may 13th, working on an opponent more news to follow, @frankwarren_tv @btsport @boxnationtv.”
Yes, friends, Tyson Fury is planning on coming back to the sport of boxing after an extended hiatus for personal reasons. After stunning longtime heavyweight honcho Wladimir Klitschko for the heavyweight crown late in 2015, Fury went on a downward spiral where he succumbed to depression and substance abuse. Now Fury has made it clear that he feel he’s ready to come back, only this time he’s entering a fractured, and interesting, heavyweight scene that he himself more or less personally created by besting Klitschko.
“I’m taking on all bums,” Fury also tweeted. “Keep my belts warm guys as they belong to the king who ever got my belts I’m coming for you! Big or small.”
In a controversial time, Fury is almost indicative of the era in which he lives – loud, opinionated, psychologically tactful and frustrating. He’s also a vastly underrated fighter, something Klitschko himself can attest to. The question now, provided Fury is indeed returning, is whether or the man has successfully battled his demons in order to fight effectively.
