Fury marks boxing comeback with facile victory

Tyson Fury will fight on Carl Frampton undercard on August 18

Such was the quality of the fight, a scuffle between a section of fans in the stands provided arguably more entertainment than that seen inside the ring.

Fury had not fought since his win over Wladimir Klitschko 924 days ago but returned to the ring with a win - albeit it in farcical conditions.

Britain´s Tyson Fury (C) celebrates victory over Albania´s Sefer Seferi following their heavyweight contest at the Manchester Arena in Manchester, northern England on June 9, 2018.

Tyson Fury made a winning return to boxing on Saturday night, forcing Sefer Seferi to retire after four rounds of their heavyweight clash in Manchester.

Whether he'd win or lose, one would imagine that Tony Bellew would nearly certainly put up a better fight against Tyson Fury than Sefer Seferi.

"On 18 August at Windsor Park in Belfast", Warren responded when asked when we could expect to see Fury back in the ring. I must admit, he was saying the right things but I used to think "I hope I could share your enthusiasm".

"I'll be better next time". I got four rounds instead of ten seconds.

With a height advantage of 10 inches and weighing almost five stone heavier than the Albanian, Fury's camp are hopeful that they will find a taller and heavier opponent for his Belfast bout.

"I did a bit of dancing, threw a couple of punches and it was just about getting back to being under the lights again - it's been a long time", he added.

The prospect of an all-British showdown with Bellew was presented to Fury in his post-fight press conference but he dismissed it out of hand, insisting that he would prefer to focus on larger opposition as he continues down his comeback trail.

Both Fury and promoter Frank Warren admitted that they were disappointed in Seferi's inability to answer the bell for the fifth round but neither are under any illusions about the plan to ease the former world heavyweight champion back into the fight game. "I´ll take my career very seriously this time and enjoy every moment". He received his boxing licence in January after accepting a backdated two-year doping ban.
