Fury: Tyson is doing well

Tyson Fury's trainer remains convinced the former heavyweight champion will return to the ring.

Fury had his boxing licence revoked in October – pending the outcome of an investigation into anti-doping and medical issues – shortly after vacating his WBA, WBO and IBF titles to seek treatment for depression.

Uncle and trainer Peter Fury revealed Tyson is coping well but says a comeback for his nephew will be down to the Wilmslow man himself.

"Tyson is doing well. He's okay and right now he is just enjoying some private time," Peter told Sky Sports.

"I've spent time with him recently and we never even spoke about the prospect of him coming back. We just relaxed and enjoyed a bit of family time.

"It's something where Tyson has to make that decision himself, and he has to really want it. But I'm sure he'll be back – I don't think he knows anything else. He's still only 28 and I think he still has a lot more to offer the sport."

Fury shocked the world by dethroning Wladimir Klitschko and snatching away the Ukrainian's WBA, WBO and IBF belts by unanimous decision in Dusseldorf in November 2015.

"Tyson did what nobody else has done," Peter added.

"He went over to Germany and defeated the main heavyweight, who had not been beaten in 11 years.

"He was totally the underdog going into that fight. It was an amazing story and I don't think it will be repeated any time soon. It was a truly fabulous achievement and an achievement we're all very proud of.

"I still think he will resume his career in the future, but when, I don't know."
