Fury's 32 month absence from the sport - in large part due to a doping ban - ended with an easy victory over Albanian opponent Sefer Seferi in the fourth round on Saturday night. We'll keep moving onwards and forwards.

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.

If he looked a little more serious from the second round onwards, it still felt like something of a non-event as the limited Seferi tried in vain to even reach Fury's head with his sluggish right uppercuts.

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

I'll have more rounds and fight a better opponent", said Fury of his next fight.

In his first fight since November 2015, the Brit won a largely forgettable bout against Sefer Seferi, who retired before the fifth round in Manchester.

Rodman has consistently described him as his "friend", and his descriptions of the North Korean leader are generally sympathetic. While the summit was back on days later, the episode led many in Seoul to call into question Trump's commitment.

"I learned that two and a half years out of the ring was a long time".

He vowed: "I'm happy to to be back and I'll take my career very seriously this time".

Seferi, who was almost five stones lighter and seven inches smaller, did show some ambition early on but Fury's height and movement ensured there was never going to be an upset at Manchester Arena. After beating Wladimir Klitschko for the WBA, WBO and IBF world heavyweight titles, Fury's life spun out of control and he had not fought since.

Fury was eventually given a backdated two-year ban and in his exile he piled on the pounds.

Joshua and Wilder are in talks to face each other in early 2019, while Warren plans on keeping Fury active until a world title shot happens, with his next bout scheduled to be at BelfastĀ“s Windsor Park, Northern Ireland on August 18.

It was not always pretty from Fury, but it allowed the 6ft 9in Englishman to shed some of the ring rust before moving on to harder tests. "And the objective is to get him into contention to fight for a world title as soon as possible". "In the meantime we have to get Tyson more competitive fights".
