by @shaun_brown

It may be the cold and wet of January but things appear bright and sunny for Tyson Fury after a frustrating and disappointing 2013.

The unbeaten 21-0 heavyweight has signed a promotional deal with Frank Warren and will make his debut on the next Copperbox event on Feb 15 live on Boxnation.

Warren, who already houses European Heavyweight champion, Dereck Chisora is aiming at a huge domestic rematch between the two after Fury outpointed a lacklustre Chisora in 2011.

"Fury v Chisora 2 is a huge fight and has to take place at a football stadium, the collision course starts 15 Feb," said Warren at today's press conference which also announced the addition of Fury's younger brother and heavyweight prospect, Hughie, on the bill as well.

"We look forward to working with Tyson, Peter Fury, Mick Hennessey, Hughie Fury and the rest of the team," added Warren.

More details of the deal and the involvement of former promoter, Mick Hennessy, will follow.

Note: Tyson's trainer and Uncle, Peter, has just tweeted: "Our promoter is still Mick Hennessy!! We are currently awaiting the contract in a co promotion with Boxnation. Only then the deal is Done!!
