Tyson Fury's boxing licence will be reinstated if the former world heavyweight champion passes his medical.

The decision by the British Boxing Board of control will enable Fury to resume his career, edging him closer towards a domestic showdown with Anthony Joshua.

"Following (an) interview with Tyson Fury at the BBBC offices earlier today, the suspension of his boxer's licence will be lifted subject to receipt and clearance of all medical requirements," a statement read.
