Boxing maverick and lineal heavyweight champion Tyson Fury has signed a management deal with MTK Global marking his serious return to boxing.
“I couldn’t be happier to sign an advisory deal with MTK Global,” Fury said. “It is unbelievable how fast they have grown and what they have achieved in the past few years. I spoke to my mate (and middleweight world titleholder) Billy Joe Saunders and he only had good things to say about MTK so it was an easy decision to go with them.”
MTK Global manages some of the best well know fighter’s around the world such as Billy-Joe Saunders and Irishman Michael Conlan.
Fury hasn’t been in the ring since defeating long time champion Vladimir Klitscho in November 2015. Since he was stripped of all of his belts apart from the lineal title, as he did not lose it in the ring.
The heavyweight division is buzzing at the moment with world superstar Anthony Joshua holding both the IBF & WBA Super belts. Joseph Parker of New Zealand holding the WBO title and firebrand Deontay Wilder holding the coveted WBC title.
There are many avenues Fury could go down for his comeback however he seems to have just chucked himself straight in the deep end by calling all World Champions out, including former WBC Cruiserweight Champion Tony Bellew.
Tony Bellew responded by calling him out, after he has “dealt” with former heavyweight champion David Haye for the second time.
We could see Fury in a warm-up fight early next year and then fighting Bellew late 2018.
