Former heavyweight titlist Tyson Fury has been cleared to resume his professional boxing career in the U.K. after successfully interviewing with the British Boxing Board of Control, says ESPN. At the end of the interview the control board decided to lift his indefinite suspension provided that he clears medical requirements.
The 29-year-old Fury has been out of action since a late 2015 win over Wladimir Klitschko as he dealt with a number of personal issues, including drug abuse and mental health instability.
Frank Warren petitioned the BBBoC last week to have Fury’s license reinstated following Fury settling up with UK Anti-Doping, and now Fury is being targeted for an April return to the ring.
That said, Fury still has his work cut out for him as he tries to whip himself back into some semblence of fighting shape. It won’t all happen at once, so I fully expect him to get a tomato can or two as he gets back into the swing of things.
We’ll keep you posted...
