TYSON FURY’S comeback next month looks to be off as the WBC champion announced: ‘Gypsy King is returning in 2021’.
Fury was in line to make his homecoming on December 5 having walked away from his trilogy bout with Deontay Wilder.
But it appears his return to the ring will be pushed back into the new year.
Fury, 32, tweeted: “The Gypsy King is returning in 2021.
“Only those that have supported me 100% since my comeback will be with me for the glory.”
Fury cancelled a third fight with Wilder after their immediate rematch clause expired last month.
But in a desperate attempt to salvage his crack at redemption, Wilder initiated a mediation with a retired judge set to review his case.
Promoter Frank Warren said the outcome of the dispute should be resolved by next week which looks to have caused a delay in Fury’s next fight.
Fury, 32, convincingly dethroned Wilder, 35, of the WBC title in February, having firstly drawn with each other in 2018.
They were contracted to a rematch straight after as part of the deal they initially signed.
But as the coronavirus pandemic kept fans away, it did the same for Wilder’s shot at revenge.
As a result, once the stipulation expired, Fury moved on from the trilogy to instead focus on facing Anthony Joshua, 31, twice next year.
He was in line to fight on December 5, with Agit Kabayel, 28, his chosen opponent as a tune up bout.
But the matchup remains up in the air following Fury’s latest announcement on Twitter.
