Tyson Fury’s comeback fight will be broadcast exclusively live on BT Sport after an extension of the partnership with Frank Warren and Queensberry Promotions Ltd was announced.
BT Sport will continue as the broadcaster of Frank Warren’s world-class stable of fighters that includes Billie Joe Saunders and Carl Frampton – as well as the recently-signed Fury.
The former unified heavyweight world champion will return to the ring this June for his first fight since beating Wladimir Klitschko in November 2015.
Fury's long-awaited comeback will take place at the Manchester Arena on Saturday, 9 June, a bout that will see him fight in the city for the first time since 2011.

BT Sport has a knockout summer coming your way with a fantastic line up of Fight Nights, including the IBF featherweight world title showdown between bitter rivals Lee Selby and Josh Warrington on Saturday, 19 May, at Elland Road - the home of Leeds United.
Saunders’ WBO middleweight title defence against domestic rival Martin Murray at the O2 on Saturday, 23 June and Irish amateur hero Michael Conlan’s highly-anticipated Belfast homecoming fight on Saturday, 30 June will also be available for BT Sport subscribers at no extra cost.
The partnership will see former two-weight world champion Frampton’s future fights shown live on BT Sport in addition to former WBO super-welterweight world champion Liam Smith and former WBO lightweight world champion Terry Flanagan.
Subscribers will also be able to keep tabs on up-and-coming stars such as heavyweight sensation Daniel Dubois and light-heavyweight knockout artist Anthony Yarde.
BT Sport will also be launching its own Pay-Per-View events on BT Sport Box Office later this year, which will be available on the BT TV, Sky and Virgin platforms.
Andy Haworth, managing director of strategy and content, BT Consumer, said: “It is a golden era for British boxing and never has the Warren stable of fighters looked more exciting, with a great line up of established names and up-and-coming young fighters. BT Sport subscribers can look forward to a fantastic summer of boxing.”
Frank Warren said: “I’m delighted that BT Sport has extended its partnership with myself and Queensberry Promotions. The first year of our partnership has seen us deliver some outstanding fights and we look forward to some even bigger nights in 2018 and beyond, whilst continuing to do what we do best: developing the next crop of star boxers.”
