Heavyweight troll Tyson Fury reckons he’s making a comeback in May

After getting on the gear and being banned from boxing, forcing him to drop his hard-fought, well-won belts, Tyson Fury, the fighting pride of wherever the hell he pleases, has announced that he’ll be making a comeback.

Last year, Fury’s uncle Peter announced that Tyson would return this Spring and would aim for a fight against WBC champion Deontay Wilder in February. That never happened, but Tyson tweeted he was back in training on Christmas Eve saying he had had a “nightmare 2016” and had “done a lot of stuff I’m not proud of” but promised his return.

Fury is undoubtedly a class fighter, with the kind of power, jittery head movement and off-beat timing that could easily upset some more of the division's big boys, especially with a David Haye-shaped hole suddenly vacated. Could this be the time the Gypsy King makes good on his word?

Or maybe he just likes chips too much.
