Tyson Fury's uncle and trainer, Peter Fury, thinks boxing has suffered while the former world champion has been away from the sport.
Tyson, 28, has not fought since he claimed three world titles with a points win over Wladimir Klitschko in 2015, and is unable to plan a comeback fight as he awaits the outcome of a UKAD hearing.
He's fabulous for the sport and he will be back.
The former unified world heavyweight champion is still waiting for a final ruling on a suspended drugs ban, and uncle Peter is hopeful that the situation will be resolved soon.
Speaking to Sky Sports News HQ, Peter Fury said: "We are hoping that he [Tyson] will be back soon, our legal teams are dealing with it and we are just waiting on them to give us a green light.
"He is in a good place at the moment, back in the gym and shedding weight.
"I think people only realise how much he did bring to the game, both inside and out of the ring, now that he's not there anymore. He's fabulous for the sport and he will be back."
