Hughie Fury's camp confirms that he will make his comeback in London next month.

Heavyweight contender Hughie Fury will return to the ring next month, according to his promoter.

Frank Warren has confirmed that Tyson Fury's cousin will make his comeback on July 8 at the Copper Box Arena in London.

Fury has not fought since a back injury forced him to withdraw from his planned showdown with world titleholder Joseph Parker in New Zealand on May 6.

"Hughie is one of the best and most exciting young heavyweight prospects in the world and I'm delighted to add him to our stacked July 8 Copper Box Arena card," ESPN quotes Warren as saying.

"He needs to get this warm-up fight out of the way before he faces Parker later in the year.

"I am confident that the WBO heavyweight belt will once again be in the possession of the Fury family come the end of the year."

Fury, who is still the mandatory challenger for Parker, is yet to announce his opponent for July 8.
