Tyson Fury beat Sefer Seferi in heavyweight boxing return

14 June 2018

From the moment Fury lifted Seferi off his feet during the pre-fight weigh-in, it was clear his comeback was unlikely to go down in the heavyweight annals, and Seferi duly obliged.

"I'm sure Frank Warren is going to keep me busy and the calibre of opponents will keep rising", Fury said.

Fans will now be expecting Team Fury to take on some tougher challenges in next fights, with the The Gypsy King due to be back out on the Carl Frampton undercard on August 18 in Belfast.

"I seem to have everyone behind me and I'm coming back and fighting for them".

As he targets a return to the big-time he briefly left after dethroning Wladimir Klitschko so memorably in November 2015, Fury will surely have no more nights quite so farcical as his triumph over Seferi.

Germany's Manuel Charr, who holds the secondary WBA title, is one potential opponent for Fury in the next six months.

Fury made short work of Seferi as the pair of them exchanged a kiss, amusing looks but very few punches before the Albanian quit on his stool at the end of the 4th round.

Instead, they arrived to find half-built tents, feral dogs and inadequate food and water. He tricked at least 15 people into buying the nonexistent tickets.

But Fury rediscovered his passion for boxing and claimed to have lost eight stones (112 pounds) ahead of facing Seferi.

Fury played to the crowd in the first round and looked a bit embarrassed when Seferi tried to rough up the former champion.

Seferi was seven inches shorter and almost five stones lighter than Fury, who used his reach and height to ensure there was never any danger of an upset. Fury was into stride and Seferi was pulled out of the fight before the fifth.

Fury has long felt he was unfairly stripped of the world title belts he won after beating Klitschko and has long spoken of his desire for a bout with reigning champion Anthony Joshua in an all-British encounter.

But just boxing again seemed unlikely at times for Fury during a troublesome period away from boxing.

"I'll have a world title by the end of the year, that's a promise", the 29-year-old said.

The Manchester boxer suffered depression and admitted to drinking too much and taking cocaine, before it was revealed he tested positive for a banned steroid.
