Fury, aged 30, smashed his way in to the history books in 2015 when he won the unified WBA (Super), IBF, WBO, IBO, Ringmagazine and lineal heavyweight titles, after defeating long-reigning world champion Wladimir Klitschko.
The victory earned him Fighter of the Year and Upset of the Year awards by The Ring.

In 2016, Fury vacated the WBA, WBO, IBO, and lineal titles following a personal issues, and two cancellations of the Klitschko rematch.
Now he is back and after two warm-up fights he is feeling ready to challenge the best once again.

“I just want to keep my fans and all the people that are interested updated.
“I feel more motivated for this fight than ever and I really can’t wait to put on a show for my fans.
“I feel like I owe you this win. I’m doing it for you guys."
