'Guess who's back?': Fury's return rouses heavyweight scene

Only a few minutes had passed after the news broke that Tyson Fury was free to box again, following his long-running dispute with Britain's anti-doping agency, when the man himself took to Twitter.

The heavyweight scene has been revived since Fury beat Wladimir Klitschko in November 2015 to win the WBA, IBF, and WBO belts.

Now, the division boasts a new breed of fighters, champions from three different continents in Britain's Anthony Joshua (WBA and IBF), American Deontay Wilder (WBC) and New Zealand's Joseph Parker (WBO).

The loudmouth Briton and his cousin Hughie accepted backdated two-year doping bans on Tuesday after providing elevated levels of nandrolone in urine samples following fights in February 2015.

Fury must get back his license, which was suspended by the British Boxing Board of Control last year over separate incidents of drug use and medical issues, but is now a major player among the heavyweights.
