Despite getting smacked down by the BBBofC, Tyson Fury remains positive about his comeback chances, taking to social media to announce that he’s overcome the bout of depression that cost him the heavyweight titles.

He also mentioned that he’s currently 350 pounds, but that dropping weight has “never been a problem.” Considering his tendency to blow up between fights in the past, I can believe it.

As the article states, Fury has teased the notion of fighting man-of-the-hour Tony Bellew later this year. If that fight happens. I sincerely hope he weighs in at 350 because I want to see a high-level boxing match where one man is literally more than 50% heavier than his opponent.

With big fights like Joshua-Klitschko and Parker-H. Fury on the docket, it will be interesting to see what the heavyweight landscape looks like when the big lad finally makes his return. Think he takes a warm-up or just hops back in?
