TOMMY FURY is hoping to make his return on the undercard of brother Tyson’s domestic dust-up with Dillian Whyte.
TNT was forced to pull out of his grudge match with Jake Paul last December due to illness and injury.

But the Love Islander was forced out of the bout due to illness and injury
And TNT is hoping to reschedule the grudge match for later this year
The Love Islander is still hellbent on settling the score with the YouTuber turned boxer, although he wants to have a warm-up fight beforehand.
He told Sky Sports: “I’d look to see the [Paul] fight happen by the back end of the year.
“I’m not really waiting around for it, he knows I’m ready to fight at all times.
“I’ve put that out there countless times, I’m not the issue here.
” If the man wanted to fight we’d have a rescheduled date by now.
“The ball’s in his court, I’m ready to fight whenever. I would like to see it happen at the end of the year, I know Frank [Warren] is still trying to reach out to him and stuff like that.
“I think I’m looking to get a run out on Tyson’s undercard next, that’s the plan moving forward. Then we’ll try to set that fight up back end of the year.”
WBC heavyweight king Tyson is set to throw down with Whyte on April 23 – with SunSport understanding the fight is set to land at Wembley Stadium.
Reality TV star Tommy hasn’t fought since his less-than-impressive victory over MMA fighter Anthony Taylor on the undercard of Paul’s first bout with Tyron Woodley.
Paul, meanwhile, hasn’t fought since his viral KO of the former UFC welterweight champ and is targeting a September return to the ring.
He said on The MMA Hour: “There’s a lot going on in other aspects of my life.
“I’m going to do these press conferences over the next two weeks here to help with the promotion around Katie Taylor and Amanda Serrano and I’m very busy on the business side of things with my venture capital fund.
“So I haven’t even got back into the gym or been training at all.
“I need to have a discussion with my coaches but probably I would say August-September maybe. Maybe later. I’m trying to figure it out.
“Obviously if the stars align in some sort of way or I have a change of heart, then things can obviously move around but right now I don’t feel like that motivated to just go right back into another training camp.”
