Tyson Fury: I Will Continue To Hold Ring Magazine Belt With Pride

Tyson Fury: I Will Continue To Hold Ring Magazine Belt With Pride. The former lineal heavyweight champion of the world speaking today on Twitter as he gears up for a comeback in 2017.

Tyson Fury has been in bullish form in past weeks as he looks set to make a comeback at some stage in 2017 following his vacating of his heavyweight titles in 2016, due to mental health reasons that saw him unfit to box and in need of recovery from his issues that he was having.

His uncle and trainer Peter Fury promised us in this interview in late 2016 that we will see Tyson back in 2017 and in recent days, he has also vowed that fight fans will see both Tyson and his own son (and Tyson’s cousin) Hughie Fury both hold versions of the world heavyweight title in 2017.

A big year been planned by team Fury no doubt, out of a gym in Bolton that has now become well known for churning out heavyweight professional fighters as a speciality in particular, that also included the very talented undefeated Irish heavyweight Con Sheehan.

Tyson’s latest post on his Twitter feed today suggests he is in as confident mood as ever and adds further flames to the notion in my opinion that he will be coming back sooner rather than later:

This belt can only be won & lost in the ring,as I haven’t lost in the ring I will continue to hold her with pride, @ringmagazine heavyweight

Fury was also keen to point out today that he is only the second British boxer to ever actually hold the prestigious Ring Magazine belt:

Only the second Brit to win the ring magazine fighter on the year award, behind @HitmanHatton both Manchester lads.

Fury’s return will add another interesting dynamic in the already jam packed heavyweight division that is set to really come alive in 2017, at long last.
