BT Sport is to broadcast exclusive coverage of Tyson Fury's return to the boxing ring next month..

The former unified Heavyweight World Champion will make his long-awaited comeback on Saturday June 9th at the Manchester Arena.

BT Sport has also confirmed it has extended its partnership with Frank Warren and Queensberry Promotions, which means it will continue showing action from Warren's stable of fighters.

For instance, the schedule includes Billy Joe Saunders’ WBO middleweight title defence against domestic rival Martin Murray at the O2 on Saturday June 23rd.

The partnership also means BT Sport will cover fights featuring the likes of Carl Frampton, Liam Smith and Terry Flanagan, as well as emerging talent such as Daniel Dubois and Anthony Yarde.

Other upcoming highlights of BT Sport's boxing schedule include the IBF Featherweight World Title showdown between Lee Selby and Josh Warrington on Saturday May 19th and Ireland's Michael Conlon in a much-anticipated fight in Belfast.

Andy Haworth, Managing Director of Strategy and Content at BT Consumer, commented: "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 added that he is "delighted" to extend his partnership with BT Sport, as the first year of their collaboration saw them deliver a number of "outstanding fights".

He said he is now looking forward to "some even bigger nights" this year and beyond, while continuing to focus on developing the next crop of star boxers.
