Fury comebacks ends in facile fourth round victory

It's been a long time out of the ring and I needed to get some rounds in. I was fit and ready, and very happy with the performance.

As he targets a return to the big-time he briefly left after dethroning Wladimir Klitschko in 2015, Fury will surely have no more nights quite so farcical as his triumph over Seferi and Belfast fans will be hoping for better in August.

With Fury occupying the spotlight centre-stage, his Albanian opponent has been relegated to the shadows, leaving it to the former heavyweight champion to big him up.

Fury back in action on Saturday night after more than two years out of the ring won after his hopelessly inadequate opponent quit on his stool - will now head for Belfast for his next outing.

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. In one clip, men can be seen hurling themselves over chairs as the brawl, which unfolded during the second round of the boxing match, escalated.

"I'll have a world title by the end of the year".

The eagerly-awaited comeback happened almost three years after the British boxer secured a triumph over Ukrainian Wladimir Klitschko in November 2015. He received his boxing licence in January after accepting a backdated two-year doping ban.

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

Now Fury is up and running, promoter Frank Warren will want to keep him busy and focused to close in on world titleholders Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder.

"As we've said from the start, this is a process and it's about him getting the rust out of his system".

Tyson Fury will fight again this summer on the undercard of Carl Frampton's mega-event at Windsor Park.

There is no doubt Seferi can punch - 21 of his 23 wins have come inside the distance - but all his wins have come at cruiserweight, and his only loss was to heavyweight contender Manuel Charr in September 2016. "And the objective is to get him into contention to fight for a world title as soon as possible".

The former IBF, WBA and WBO champion planted a kiss on his much-smaller rival prior to the opening bell, though the pair barely laid a glove on each other once the first of 10 scheduled rounds got underway.
