Fury marks boxing comeback with facile victory

Share

Mid fight, former heavyweight champ Tyson Fury and his opponent even appeared to look at the punch drunk punters as they landed punches on one another.

Promoter Frank Warren plans on Fury fighting again at Windsor Park in Belfast on August 18, on the undercard of WBO interim featherweight champion Carl Frampton's next fight.

However, the Brit lost more than seven stone in his return to professional boxing and walked to the ring at the Manchester Arena in front of around 15,000 as the main event last night. It's been a long time out of the ring and I needed to get some rounds in.

"We picked Sefer Seferi because he fought Manuel Charr and gone 10 rounds with him", Warren said.

"I'm sure Frank's going to keep me busy and the calibre of opponents will keep rising".

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.

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. "It is my job not to let him do that".

While Fury showboated his way through the contest against an opponent whom he out-weighed by four and a half stone and towered over by a foot, the only real aggression was shown by fans engaging in a mid-bout brawl outside the ring.

The ultimate goal for Fury is a lucrative all-British showdown with fellow unbeaten heavyweight Anthony Joshua but the 29-year-old remains patient as he aims to return to the pinnacle of world boxing.

After the fight, Fury was just glad to be back in the ring.

After twice pulling out of rematches with Klitschko, Fury then admitted problems with mental health, drinking too much and cocaine use before it was revealed he failed a drugs test for the banned steroid nandrolone in February 2015. He received his boxing licence in January after accepting a backdated two-year doping ban.
