Tyson Fury has scheduled his first fight in over two-and-a-half years for June 9 at the Manchester Arena, against an unconfirmed opponent.

Fury has signed a promotional deal with Frank Warren which will bring him under the BT Sport boxing umbrella. "The "Mac" is back".

Here's everything you need to know about the next Tyson Fury fight.

Who do you think Tyson Fury will fight next?

"He's a big old dosser, belt carrier for me", said Fury.

But a sceptical Joshua added: 'It'll be a situation that, when the opportunity does come, he'll be saying he's the man who beat the man, he deserves this, he deserves that, and then he won't fight me.

House Speaker Paul Ryan Will Not Run for Re-Election in November
House Speaker Paul Ryan says he will not seek re-election , according to reports from CNN and Axios citing unnamed sources. Two people with knowledge of Ryan's thinking said he has decided against seeking another term, but they did not say why.

By January, Fury had reportedly lost close to four stone in weight, and plenty more has fallen off since as evidenced by a picture uploaded to Instagram by "The Hitman" earlier this week.

It's been a tough journey ever since having been accused of doping and battling with depression, but following months of training he's fit and ready to make his comeback.

While Fury's name and ability to sell a fight is expected to provide an additional shot in the arm to a division now undergoing a renaissance, questions still linger as to whether he can return physically to his prime form. "The reflexes are as good as they've ever been".

Compatriot Anthony Joshua, the 2012 Olympic champion, now holds those belts as well as the IBO one and is hoping to become undisputed champion if a fight against WBC champion Deontay Wilder can be arranged. He was charged with testing positive for a "prohibited substance" in June 2016 but said that was as a result of eating wild boar.

Speaking at a press conference, Fury sent a warning to the two current heavyweight champions.
