Former world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury has hinted that his return to the ring is imminent.

Fury announced on his Twitter account that he is set to return to the ring on May 13th with an opponent still to be announced.

The 28-year-old has not fought since his memorable night in Dusseldorf back in November 2015 where he upset the odds to beat Wladimir Klitschko to become world champion.

Since then, Fury has pulled out of two matches with Klitschko, the first due to injury and the second due to mental health and drug issues.

In October of 2016, he announced his retirement from the sport, but, then reversed his decision.

However, it might be a difficult task for Fury to make his return to the ring as his boxing license is currently suspended by the British Boxing Board of Control.
