The Tyson Fury comeback is now official after today’s ruling from UKAD that the boxer is once again free to box in 2018.
Two years of frustration have come and gone now for former heavyweight world champion Tyson Fury, who has been plagued with outside the ring issues since he last fought in a professional boxing ring.
For a long time, it looked as though he would never be coming back to boxing – from suffering mentally in the last couple of years to piling on weight physically.
The weight is already coming off however in recent weeks and his mind frame appears to be as positive and balanced as ever.
Positive news today from UKAD will only help this, as will the many messages of support from around the world of boxing so far today since the news broke a short time ago.
Here’s a pick of the reactions from around the world of boxing:

So from midnight tonight @Tyson_Fury is no longer suspended by UKAD. He still has to get a Board license but it now appears a formality. The king is back.

Tyson Fury and Hughie Fury accept anti-doping violations and handed two-year ban but backdated from today so cleared to box. Tyson needs to reapply for licence.
