After shedding a whole load of weight, the media has been alive that Tyson Fury is set to announce his comeback.

The self-proclaimed Gypsy King has been teasing the media for a couple of days now dropping hints as to who he?ll be fighting and when, without actually giving too much away.

But, after shedding so much weight and having not fought since that memorable night, in Dusseldorf, when Fury shocked the world and became the world heavyweight champion it remains to be seen just how an effective heavyweight he remains.

Will we see the old Fury, a heavyweight who can box, or will his attributes have been dulled by the dalliance with extra weight, a poor lifestyle and a lack of action?

That remains to be seen.

However, Fury is serious about his comeback and it appears that he?d like three low key fights before trying to gate-crash the big time.

Eddie Hearn, a leading light when it comes to promoters, had spoken to the media about Fury?s plans but admitted he can?t afford to pay Fury the money he wants for those fights, at this stage of his career, remarking,

?I don?t blame him as well. We?ve had talks as well, but to provide that kind of money that he wants, I can?t provide those kinds of fights to people.

?But let him do it. If he comes with us great; if he doesn?t, we?ll see what happens down the line. If he?s with us, it?s a lot easier to make the Joshua fight.?

Will Fury take the bait knowing there could be a huge payday awaiting with a clash with Anthony Joshua or will, as some suspect, Fury end up signing for Frank Warren?

Here at Vital Boxing we?ll keep a close eye on developments and report back as deemed necessary.
