He announced on Thursday that he was set to return to the ring on June 9 at the Manchester Arena, having signed for Frank Warren. Wilder is risky until the last few seconds of a fight, only needs one punch, but he's a bit weak around the old whiskers and he's not the best boxer in the world. "He's not even a big puncher".

While Fury's name and ability to sell a fight is expected to provide an additional shot in the arm to a division now undergoing a renaissance, questions still linger as to whether he can return physically to his prime form. "Most people can relate to what I've gone through".

The self-proclaimed "Gypsy King", has been back in training and is determined to prove that he is still the best in the heavyweight division by reclaiming all of the belts that "rightfully", he said, belong to him. "I've got another 10 years left in me".

Warren said Fury would need "three or four fights" and will "be busy" before being ready to take on the best in the business.

"I'll outbox him for a few rounds and then knock him out, he's not the hardest man in the world to hit", he boldly states.

The opponent that Fury will face in his comeback fight has yet to be announced, with Warren confirming it would announced in "due course", while confirming Fury's contract is a "multi-fight deal". I've been as low as any man can go, and as high as any man can go.

He added: 'I'm stronger and faster than ever.

Indiana's Big Ten-ACC Challenge game against Duke will be its third against the Blue Devils in four seasons in the event. He also contributes frequently to the Lindy's Sports website with articles on all sports throughout the year.

Fury was sensational in ending Klitschko's nine-and-a-half year reign with a shock points win.

"Wilder is the best of the two champions at the moment but the pair of them put together are not a patch on Mike Tyson and don't punch like he did".

Fury said he believes Wilder is "top of the pile" of the current crop of heavyweights but insisted "they're all very vulnerable and very beatable too".

Though there is a deep-rooted respect for Joshua, he still dismissed him as "a big old dosser, [a] belt carrier for me". I kid you not.

Is a Joshua vs Fury fight on the cards in 2018?

"Within a couple of fights I will have won the world title back, 100 per cent".

"When he gets himself together... boxing fans are awaiting his return".
