FORMER world heavyweight boxing champion Tyson Fury is set to arrive in Dunfermline this summer as part of a UK tour.

The 'Gypsy King' has been pencilled in for a 'Q&A' appearance in West Fife on July 6 at a venue that has not yet been announced.

Dunfermline Press:

Organisers Gold Star Promotions have confirmed on social media that Dunfermline will be one of three Scottish dates - the others being in Glasgow and Dundee - in which the Englishman will speak about his career in the ring.

In 2015, Fury won the unified WBA (Super) IBF, WBO, IBO, Ring maganzine and lineal heavyweight titles by defeating long-reigning world champion, Wladimir Klitschko.

The following year, he vacated the WBA, WBO, IBO and lineal titles after suffering from mental health issues, but returned to the ring last year to challenge for the WBC heavyweight title against Deontay Wilder.

The bout, which ended in a draw, is considered to be one of the best fights in recent years and it is anticipated that rematch will take place.

Further information, including on the venue, is expected to be released in the coming weeks.

Fury's appearance will follow that of another former boxing champion, Tony Bellew, who will appear at a sportsman's dinner in the Glen Pavilion in June.

The sold-out event has been organised by Dunfermline man Craig Roxburgh, who has previously brought Ricky Hatton and Joe Calzaghe to West Fife.

Liverpool-born Bellew, who held the WBC cruiserweight title from 2016 to 2017, will speak about his career on the night, which is set to benefit Dunfermline Foodbank.
