Tyson Fury has indicated he will return to the ring in February as the British heavyweight targets a bumper 2014 fight calendar.

Fury has not fought since his American debut win against Steve Cunningham in April. He was scheduled to face David Haye in an all-British superfight, but the bout was twice postponed due to Haye suffering injury.

However, the Manchester fighter confirmed via social networking site Twitter that he would return to the ring early next year and stated his training camp will begin in January.

The undefeated Brit is targeting fights with newly-crowned European champion Dereck Chisora - who he has already previously beaten on points - as well as Deontay Wilder and veteran Roy Jones Jr.
