The 28-year-old is targeting a return to the sport after an 18-month hiatus after dethroning Wladimir Klitschko in November 2015
TYSON FURY took a break away from his vigorous training schedule by enjoying a night out in Manchester until the early hours of Friday morning.
The 28-year-old is targeting a return to the sport to re-claim his world heavyweight belts after witnessing Anthony Joshua knock out former foe Wladimir Klitschko.
Fury hasn’t fought since he dethroned the Ukrainian legend in Dusseldorf in November 2015 to clinch the WBA, IBF, WBO and the IBO titles.

He was spotted leaving Wetherspoons, before he posed for pictures with fans and supporters in the Manchester City centre outside LIV nightclub.
Only recently was the ‘Gypsy King’ out training in Marbella with pal and WBO middleweight champions Billy Joe Saunders as he gears up for his title defence against Avtandil Khurtsidze at the Copper Box Arena.

The undefeated boxer who also held the prestigious Ring magazine belt, claimed to have ballooned up to 25 stone during his 18-month hiatus.
He planned on fighting on the undercard of Saunders’ fight on July 11, but he is currently without a boxing license, and his promoter Frank Warren has revealed he won’t be back inside a ring until the end of the year most likely.
Personal issues forced Fury to vacate his titles, but Eddie Hearn believes he will get his chance to become an undisputed champion once again in a mega fight against Joshua next year.
Earlier this month Fury revealed he had been driven to suicidal thoughts by the suggestion he fulfilled his life-long dream of becoming heavyweight champion by taking drugs.
Fury said: “To be honest, I didn’t want to live. If I had cheated, fine. But I have not cheated. I beat Klitschko on ability, I don’t need a drug.”
Fury is famous for drinking and eating heavily in between fights.
Last summer, he partied with England fans out in Nice ahead of Euro 2016 and bought a round of 200 jagerbombs for them.
