BOXER Tyson Fury showed off his slim­line form in a trade­mark flam­boy­ant shirt as he gets ready for his big re­turn to the box­ing ring. Tyson was the guest of hon­our at a spe­cial event at Manch­ester’s Pic­cadilly Ho­tel with more than 300 fans pack­ing in to meet the Man­cu­nian fighter.

And Tyson was on good form as he posed for pho­tos and signed au­to­graphs for guests at the event.

He then took to the stage to an­swer ques­tions from fans, in­clud­ing who he would like to face in the box­ing ring.

While ev­ery­one is Tyson will even­tu­ally face Anthony Joshua, he told fans an an­nounce­ment on his op­po­nent for his comeback fight on June 9 won’t be made un­til later this month.

Mickey Martin or­gan­ised the event at the week­end and said: “Tyson was an ab­so­lute gen­tle­man, he was very re­spect­ful and was happy to pose for pho­tos with his fans.

“He went on stage and said: ‘how do I look ladies and gentle­men?’ to rap­tur­ous ap­plause.”

Mickey added it had been a lively Q&A on stage, com­pered by for­mer boxer and Sky Sports pun­dit Johnny Nel­son.

Mickey said: “He said how much he’d missed box­ing, he’s tried golf and other sports but he just knows that he’s made for box­ing.

“He said that be­ing away for the past two years helped him to re­ju­ve­nate, that two years is a long time but it’s done him the world of good.”

As for that leop­ard print shirt? Well, Tyson has re­vealed that he gets all of his uniquely pat­terned blouses from shirt-maker Clau­dio Lugli – and that he’s teamed up with the de­signer to raise funds for men­tal health char­ity Mind with up­com­ing sales.
