The British Boxing Board have today released an official statement following the news from UKAD that Tyson and Hughie Fury are free to box.

Highie Fury boxed very recently against Joseph Parker for the WBO world title action in Manchester so will have no issues anyway with his boxing license.

But the big news yesterday was that former heavyweight world champion Tyson Fury who has not fought in over two years, will now be once again allowed to apply for his license and return to work in the professional boxing ring.

Boxing News and Views was advised of the following a short time ago from the British Boxing Board of Control:

Good news all round for the sport of boxing and the heavyweight division – which seems to be really thriving again with competition all over the world.

Fury is thought to be considering a comeback fight against the likes of David Price or Shannon Briggs for his first fight back by what then will be nearly two and a half years.

However he has also gone on record saying he is more than ready to take on Tony Bellew at some point later in 2018, which Bellew has also indicated his interest in.
