It is particularly encouraging to receive the daily bulletins from Tyson Fury over in Marbella where he is getting back in the swing of things alongside Billy Joe Saunders.

Working alongside a world middleweight champion, who has a big date to prepare for, will do Tyson the power of good and the weight loss he has reported will serve him well for when he really gets back in the thick of it with his trainer and mentor Peter Fury.

Tyson certainly appears to be in good spirits, which is the most positive sign after suffering the anguish of mental health issues that resulted in him having to part ways with his treasured world heavyweight title belts.

The heavyweight world has moved on since then, but Tyson remains the unbeaten lineal champion of the division and he is sure to make a big splash again when he is officially given the green light to return to competing in the sport he excels in.

Time, at just 28 years of age, is thankfully on his side and I firmly believe he will restore himself to the top of the pecking order, which has been gatecrashed in his absence.

He might not have it all his own way on his return because his cousin Hughie will remain on the hunt for the WBO title once he is back in full working order after his back injury.

So there really are fascinating – not to mention lucrative – times ahead for the giants of the game.

Tyson’s name was quickly uttered from the lips of Anthony Joshua after his see-saw battle with Wladimir Klitschko at Wembley last weekend and what a prospect that fight would be when it inevitably gets made at some point in the future.

I take my hat off to Joshua. It was a terrific fight and a stirring performance from the Brit, one that was great for boxing. The sport is now high in the public esteem and it is something we will continue to build on in our own upcoming top quality shows across BoxNation and BT.

But if the wily old Wlad presented Joshua with a spot of bother, wait until Tyson starts setting a few puzzles!

First things first though, Tyson still requires the all-clear from UKAD and the Board of Control before he can really focus in on a ring return and he will finally get his hearing on May 8.

Hopefully, soon after, he will be back in business and the heavyweight picture will be all the brighter for having him back in it.
