Over in the sunshine of Spain, Tyson Fury and Billy Joe Saunders are in training.

Billy Joe Saunders is in camp getting ready for a long-awaited defence of his crown whilst Tyson Fury is desperately trying to get back on track ready to resume his fighting career.

Fury has had his licence revoked by the British Boxing Board of Control and will have to apply for it back before he can even consider boxing again.

But whilst Fury has been out of action, fighting medical problems, his weight has ballooned.

Some people say that the former world heavyweight champion has put on something in the region of 100 pound above his fighting weight.

Fury may have ambitions of making a spectacular return to boxing, but he faces a huge task to do so.

Shifting that much weight won?t be easy, it could be a draining exercise from which Fury will not recover.

On a social network site, Tyson has announced that he?s taken 18 pound off already, which is a good start, but getting the remainder off is the acid test.

But I?m sure you?ll join me in wishing the character who divides opinion, every success, boxing kind of misses the big fell and his strange ways.
