PERHAPS the only thing in boxing trickier than creating a game plan to beat Vasyl Lomachenko is this: creating a career plan for Tyson Fury.

As unpredictable as he is talented, Fury, 25-0 (18), has retired and unretired more than most (and in boxing that’s saying something), lost every one of his world heavyweight titles without actually losing a fight, and has, for a whole host of the reasons, not set foot inside a boxing ring since November 2015.

On June 9 in Manchester, however, he’s back. Properly back this time. His opponent will be unheralded Albanian Sefer Seferi, 23-1 (21), and the man charged with the unenviable task of keeping the Tyson Fury ship going straight, towards its intended destination and away from icebergs, is Hall-of-Fame promoter Frank Warren.
