Former heavyweight champion of the world Tyson Fury today had the news confirmed that his comeback will take place on June 9th at the Manchester Arena and will be promoted by Hall of Fame promoter Frank Warren.
The long awaited news finally came today with an announcement on the opponent expected in the coming weeks ahead.
Here is what some of the boxing world has been saying following the news today:
Tyson Fury to return at Manchester Arena on June 9. By my reckoning this will be the seventh fight he has had scheduled there – the first six did not happen (Haye x 2, Chisora, Ustinov, Klitschko x 2) #boxing

Tyson fury is back!!! Will be 3 or 4 fights until he’s back to his best, if he gets there at all. I think he will, I think he gets all his belts back, but even if he doesn’t the HW division is now a better place!!!#tysonfury #tysonfuryreturn #boxnation

I like him me but I think AJ has him all day! He needs fight dillon whyte, David Haye, people like that before he fights proper. If he looses tho to anyone he can kiss a title shot goodbye he will tread carefully incase that happens
