Bob Arum expects Tyson Fury to make a comeback

Top Rank CEO Bob Arum expects Tyson Fury to return to boxing.

The undefeated champion announced his retirement following his one-sided victory over Dillian Whyte in April - but Arum is convinced that he'll return to the ring.

The legendary promoter - who has worked with Fury in recent years - told Queensberry Promotions: "He's going to fight, he's a fighting man, and I expect Tyson Fury back in the ring before the end of the year.

"I think if Joe Joyce wins his fight in early July, Tyson Fury and Joyce at Wembley in early at the beginning of October will do as well if not better - I don't know how you can do better - but as well as the Dillian Whyte fight with Tyson Fury."

Arum, 90, also talked up the possibility of Fury facing the winner of Anthony Joshua 's rematch with Oleksandr Usyk.

The duo are poised to fight for the second time in Saudi Arabia in August - but Arum wants Fury to make his comeback in the UK.

He said: "That will lead to a Fury fight against the winner of Joshua and Usyk. I'll do the best I can to make sure that fight takes place in the UK because I don't think it's good for boxing to have a fight like that and putting it in Saudi Arabia."

Meanwhile, Fury recently claimed he wants £500 million to make a return to the ring.

Responding to recent speculation, Fury explained: "Even that £200 million report today, that didn’t even tempt me.

"That would be like half of what I would want to come out of retirement.

"I’d probably want half a billi to come out of retirement. I’m telling you the truth, if you want me out of retirement it’s gonna cost half a billi."
