Tyson Fury: Seferi Didn't Come To Fight, He Came To Run Around

Tyson Fury lifts opponent Sefer Seferi during the weigh-in

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.

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

Albania's Switzerland-based Seferi was hopelessly outgunned in the fourth round, and it convinced him to quit.

Former world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury makes his boxing comeback on Saturday after nearly three years in exile that left him feeling suicidal.

Seferi's unsatisfactory withdrawal sent the boos - and the occasional drinks bottle - cascading down from the upper tiers, but for Fury at least, it is simply a case of reigniting a career that still promises much.

This always was going to be an exercise to reintroduce Fury safely back into boxing after the trials and tribulations he has gone through in his two-year, seven-month exile.

But the highlight of the whole night probably came before the fight even started.

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.

But Fury was disappointed by the attitude of 39-year-old Seferi, who was giving away more than 50lb and almost a foot of height difference on the night.

"At the end of the day, he needs rounds and he got four under his belt".

"I will take my career very seriously this time, and not take anything for granted, and enjoy every moment".

Let's hope Tyson Fury will be given a significant step-up in competition for his next outing.

.

Fury was eventually given a backdated two-year ban for testing positive for the banned steroid nandrolone and in exile he piled on the pounds while the WBA, WBO and IBF titles slipped into the hands of others.

The 29-year-old former world champion was back in the ring for the first time since beating Wladimir Klitschko in November 2015.
