Today we have some good news coming from the British Boxing Board of Control (BBBofC), as they are looking to lift the boxing suspension for the former heavyweight champion Tyson “the Gipsy King” Fury.
After almost two years out of competition, Tyson is ready to make a comeback. But before he can do that, he needs to submit up-to-date medical records to BBBofC for evaluation. If he gets cleared, he will be able to fight as soon as April this year according to some UK betting sites.
The BBBofC officials had this to say after the Friday’s interview with Tyson. “Following interview with Tyson Fury at the British Boxing Board of Control offices earlier today, the suspension of his British Boxing Board of Control boxer’s licence will be lifted subject to receipt and clearance of all medical requirements.”
However, this news came as somewhat a surprise because in the October of last year Tyson said that he won’t be asking for licence renewal from the BBBofC. Regardless of what/who made him change his mind, we are looking forward to seeing him back in the ring.
What’s the plan?
It’s no secret that the 29-year-old Fury had been battling with depression for a long time. After all, his use of cocaine as a way to cope with it is what got him banned. However, it seems that we will be getting a new and improved Tyson.
He has already started his preparations for the comeback, mainly getting back into shape. He also switched coaches. After the whole suspension and cocain ordeal, Tyson has cut all relations with his uncle and former coach Peter Fury. So, now, Tyson will prepare for his comeback bout with the help of Ben Davison, a well-known industry professional.
Of course, Tyson still needs to get his licence back. However, it seems that he is making all the right moves so far. We can’t wait for his return because this man is fun to watch both in and out of the ring.
