Eddie Hearn has reminded Tyson Fury he is just a phone call away after the British Boxing Board of Control confirmed they will lift his suspension.
Fury is set to have his boxing licence re-instated, and once the paper is issued, the Brit will be free to return to fighting.
British boxing fans are desperate to see Anthony Joshua take on Fury in a heavyweight unification showdown and the chances of that fight actually happening have just been given a big boost.

Fury has repeatedly said his goal is to end the hysteria surrounding Joshua and Hearn confirmed he and his fighter were ready to start talks.
‘If Tyson Fury wants a fight with Anthony Joshua, it is only a phone call away,’ Hearn told >Sky Sports in Sheffield on Friday.
‘He likes to tweet about it rather than talk about it, say over a table.
‘He’s an excellent fighter, he’s a great character for the sport of boxing and Joshua against Fury is a huge fight, but we have to deal with what’s available right now, what’s the reality and the reality is we want all the belts.
‘If there is a defence against Tyson Fury, yes please. If he gets his licence, yes please, for British boxing. But rather than tweet about it, we should sit down and try and make the fight.’
Joshua has a fight in diary already and is preparing for the second unification fight of his short 20-fight career.
Joseph Parker will face off against Joshua on March 31 in Cardiff, but there will be plenty of months left in the year for a second massive bout.
Fury is rumoured to be targeting a tune-up fight in April and Hearn admitted there is a possibility Joshua vs Fury could happen in the summer.
He said: ‘It could happen in the summer. If he wants to go straight into that fight, no problem for Anthony Joshua.’
