Former world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury says he is aiming to return to boxing in just over two months time.

Fury's licence was revoked in October and he has not fought since beating Wladmir Klitschko in November 2015.

He posted on social media to say he is now training to fight on the undercard of a bout on July 8th.

The card will be headlined by a fight between Billy Joe Saunders and Avtandil Khurtsidze.

"I can confirm that I will be accompanying the one and only Billy Joe Saunders when he fights Danny De Vito," said Fury, referencing a Khurtsidze nickname.
