Former heavyweight champion Fury wins on boxing comeback

  • Fury marks boxing comeback with facile victory

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. The caliber of opponents will keep on rising.

"We took Seferi, who had a good record and a tough chin and he took me a few rounds".

Fury (26-0, 19 KOs) is next scheduled to fight on August 18 in Belfast against an opponent yet to be named.

"Listen, I want someone big", Fury said.

It was always comfortable for Fury in his first fight since winning the World Boxing Association (WBA), International Boxing Federation (IBF) and World Boxing Organisation (WBO) titles from Ukraine's Wladimir Klitschko on points in November 2015.

Fury has plans to regain his three world titles, now in the possession of English rival Anthony Joshua, and his one potential future opponent could be Germany's Manuel Charr who was ringside. But Seferi was a nuisance for Fury early, and the former champion was warned for joking around.

The 6-foot-9 Englishman claimed to have lost 112 pounds for his comeback, and although he still has more to lose after weighing in at 276 pounds, he showed his boxing skills have not been eroded by the layoff.

Seferi (23-2), a career cruiserweight, tried in vain to reach Fury's head with sluggish right uppercuts.

His corner chose to spare the Albanian from further drawn-out punishment by withdrawing him at the end of the fourth round.

"If I'm brutally honest I could have knocked him out in ten seconds".

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.

But Fury's time away away from boxing has been far from a laughing matter.

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.

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.
