Tyson Fury vows to return in trio of 'big fights' in 2018

The 29-year-old has ballooned up in weight during his two-year spell away from the sport

The 29-year-old has ballooned up in weight during his two-year spell away from the sport

As you can probably imagine, people are already speculating as to who Fury could be stepping into the ring with next year - especially for the second of his three proposed fights.

Fury became IBF, WBO and WBA world champion when he shocked Wladimir Klitschko in Dusseldorf, Germany, in November 2015, but he has not boxed since, with his weight fluctuating wildly during his time away from the sport.

Earlier in October, Fury announced that he would reapply for his boxing license after he had it suspended by the British Boxing Board of Control (BBBofC) past year following the investigations surrounding anti-doping.

With the heavyweight division in rude health after the emergence of a brilliant Anthony Joshua, Fury finally appears ready to get his career back on track after a two-year absence.

But on Thursday, he wrote on social media he would "be ready to fight in April 2018 in a great fight". One he claims is planned for April, one in the summer and the other coming at the back end of the calendar year. (Then) again in (the) back end of (the) year.

Tyson Fury has revealed via Twitter that he's planning to have three fights in 2018.

Time will tell whether we will actually be seeing Fury back between the ropes but it seems a lot depends on whether he can make a successful application for a boxing licence with his United Kingdom anti-doping hearing has yet to be given a set date.
