Tyson Fury showed off a black eye after an incredible 45kg transformation, as he continues working towards his big boxing comeback.

Fury will return to the ring on June 9 in Manchester after almost three years out of action, The Sun reports.

The Gypsy king hasn't fought since his unanimous decision victory over Wlakimir Klitcschko in 2015 to become the unified heavyweight champion.

Fury's new shiner was a result of sparring sessions with fellow Brit heavyweight David Allen.

An opponent is yet to be announced for his much-anticipated comeback fight.

The 29-year-old vacated his titles back in 2016, because of a mixture of medical and personal reasons - he has previously revealed his battle with depression - as well as a pending doping investigation.

Fury was cleared to fight after accepting a backdated two-year doping ban for elevated levels of nandrolone in urine samples.

His ultimate goal will be looking to set up a showdown with current WBA, IBF and WBO belt holder Anthony Joshua to reclaim the titles he never lost.
