20:56 GMT, 5 December 2012
Tyson Fury will return to the ring on March 17 at Madison Square Garden in New York.
Fury’s uncle and trainer Peter Fury took to Twitter tonight to confirm the date and claimed world-ranked heavyweights Tomasz Adamek, Chris Arreola, Bermane Stiverne and Johnathon Banks were possible opponents, as well as former WBO champion Shannon Briggs.
Peter Fury tweeted: ‘Tyson next out Madison square Garden march 17th. Training camp Canada starts jan 14th. Poss opponents Adamek” Arriola Stiverne Banks. Briggs.’

Fury maintained his unbeaten record with a straightforward points win over Kevin Johnson in a WBC eliminator last Friday and has since resumed hostilities with British and Commonwealth champion David Price.
Price’s manager Frank Maloney offered 650,000 to make the fight, but Fury’s promoter Mick Hennessy described the bid as a ‘joke’.
Fury’s Madison Square Garden date will come exactly a year after his proposed debut at the ionic venue fell through.
