Tyson Fury vows to have SIX fights this year to shake ring rust off – and will even appear at local leisure centre shows

The Gypsy King will make his ring return after two-and-a-half years out on June 9 at the Manchester Arena after signing with legendary promoter Frank Warren.

And while Warren has said he wants to "ease him back in", Fury is adamant he will be the "busiest heavyweight there has ever been".

Fury said: "I’ve never kept busy in my career, I’ve always wanted to keep busy.

"Even when I was a world champion, I wanted to be a busy world champion, but I didn’t get a fight sorted until a year later. I don’t call that being busy.

“So Frank has promised me umpteen times, he is going to keep me busy. So I hope and pray he is going to keep me busy.


"And I know he will.

“I want to be the busiest heavyweight there has ever been. I am going to have four or five fights this year, maybe six, who knows.

"I’ll fight June, then July, August, September October aswell. I just can’t get enough of it, I just love boxing.

"If anyone can do it, the magic man can do it. All this fighting bums twice a year, I hate that. I want to fight every week if I can.

"At least once a month, who wants one bomb a month?"

With the likes of Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder touted as future opponents, Fury's stock in the sport still appears to be as high as it was when he dethroned heavyweight king Wladimir Klitschko back in November 2015.

But the man himself is under no illusions he has a long way to go to reclaim such glory – and is prepared to start at the bottom.

He added: "I’m not interested where I am on the bill. I will fight far out on an undercard somewhere.

"I’m not high and mighty, Mr Special, I’m just random old Tyson Fury, and I will pop up in your local park, or in your leisure centre, because that’s the type of person I am.


"All my career I’ve wanted to keep busy. But I’ve had four fights in five years. That’s terrible. I've never been active apart from my first year.

"At the tail end of my career, rather than the beginning, I want to be very busy and active. An active fighter is a dangerous fighter."

Fury was speaking at a press day at the BT Tower in London, announcing that Warren has signed a new, long-term deal with BT Sport.

And it's a new-era agreement that 29-year-old Fury has already become the face of.

An announcement on who Fury will be fighting in his Manchester homecoming is expected next Wednesday.
