Tyson Fury claims he is not fit enough to make his boxing comeback.
Of course, there is not a realistic chance of Fury’s promoters organising a bout with only a few days’ notice.
But the self-proclaimed Gypsy King believes he has now shed enough weight and is fit enough to step back into the ring for a professional fight.
The Wythenshawe-born boxer is hoping to regain the belts which he lost when he was banned from the sport for testing positive for a banned steroid.
Wilder currently holds the WBC title which Fury desires and he claims to be setting his sights on the American first.
The 29-year-old then wants to battle the winner of Anthony Joshua and Joseph Parker, who fight on March 31.
And he has warned his potential opponents that he is ready to “eat them all up.”

“[Trainer] Brendan Ingle once said, it’s easy to beat Tyson Fury, very, very easy,” Fury told Sky Sports.
“Nail him to the canvas, because if you can’t do that I’m going to eat you up, eat you all up.
“Deontay Wilder, Anthony Joshua, whoever else, I’m coming for you.”
Fury also claimed that he would be ready to fight in a couple of days if something came up.
However, the heavyweight is first planning a warm-up fight and says that he is expected to make an announcement in the coming days.

“I could probably fight this weekend,” Fury added.
“It’s been a long time coming. I’ve been out a long time, two-and-a-half years.
“My ambition is to get in the ring again and get under those lights.
“I told them recently I want to get some baby oil on, shining, glistening, looking the part.”
