Tyson Fury is Back, Stops Seferi in Pure Mismatch

10 June 2018

Seferi, who had campaigned nearly all his career as a cruiserweight, was never going to trouble the 6ft 9ins Fury by whom he was out-weighed by more than four-and-a-half stone, and the favourite was clearly capable of ending the fight at will.

Speaking in the ring straight after the fight, Fury promised the boxing world that better is to come in 2018.

"I learned that two-and-a-half years out of the ring was a long time". "You can see that he's still got a bit of weight to lose and you can see that he needs the rounds and we'll just have to step up his opponents each time".

Speaking afterward, Fury's promoter Frank Warren did reveal that Fury would be on the card for Carl Frampton's Windsor Park bout later this year.

Another man who has been tipped as a potential opponent for Fury is David Price.

Fury (26-0, 19 KOs) playfully bounced around for the first few rounds, and was even warned for a lack of activity in the second round against a severely undermanned Seferi (23-2, 21 KOs).

Fury has been linked with a clash against former WBC cruiserweight champion Tony Bellew, who is roughly the same size as Seferi. Fury is likely to face a tougher opponent in his next fight set for September in a division now ruled by world title holders Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder. Seferi is 39, has not boxed at an elite level, was 7 inches smaller and almost 70 pounds lighter than Fury.

"I could have knocked him out in the first round but what good would that have done me?" Fury then piled on the pounds - he claimed to have lost eight stones in preparation for Seferi - and served a backdated drugs ban for testing positive for a banned steroid in February 2015.

Fury, who is 28 pounds heavier than when he fought Klitschko, will be encouraged by his performance, but victory should be kept in perspective.

The former IBF, WBA and WBO champion was absent from the ring due to a lengthy wrangle over an alleged doping offence, which Fury denied committing.
