It’s all go today in the boxing world with news between Tyson Fury and Amir Khan joining forces with Eddie Hearn. Boxing is certainly alive and well.
Earlier this morning Tyson Fury confirmed that today he will be formally applying for his old British Boxing Board of Control boxing license.
However a conflicting report from the UK Independent suggested that Fury had not yet shown up to make the application and that the board had not heard from him.
However this simply could be down to a slight mix up in time.
Legendary promoter Frank Warren has officially said on his Twitter account that he will be applying for the licence on behalf of Fury:
“Delighted to have
@Tyson_Fury back! I’ll be applying for the reinstatement of his BBBoC license on his behalf. He is the best Heavyweight in the World and he is coming to recapture the belts he never lost in the Ring, stating in April!”
Fury is thought to be looking at potential opponents along the lines of Shannon Briggs and David Price, although nothing has been confirmed just yet.
Fury has not boxed since November 2015 when he defeated Klitschko in Germany to become the lineal heavyweight champion.
