Tyson Fury wins his comeback fight against Sefer Seferi


"I did a bit of dancing, threw a couple of punches and it was just about getting back to being under the lights again - it's been a long time", he added.

"I'm very disappointed that Seferi retired in his corner".

The live stream of Fury vs. Seferi will precede that evening's SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING® doubleheader that features WBA Featherweight World Champion Leo Santa Cruz in a highly anticipated rematch against former world champion Abner Mares live on SHOWTIME (10 p.m. ET/PT, delayed on the West Coast) from Staples Center. But Seferi is no Marvin Hagler or Joe Frazier and Fury knows the hard graft will come over the following 18 months.

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.

"He took me a few rounds so I'm happy with it".

"We keep moving onward and keep moving forwards and the objective is to get him into contention to fight for the world title as soon as possible".

'I'll have a world title by the end of the year' - Tyson Fury wins his comeback fight against Sefer Seferi

The 29-year-old is adamant his evident success in shaping up for a ring return will increase his popularity levels and, more importantly, serve as an inspiration for others who may be going through similar health issues. See PA story BOXING Manchester. He received his boxing licence in January after accepting a backdated two-year doping ban.

Seferi was a game opponent while it lasted but this has left the fans wanting more with a spot on the Carl Frampton under-card at Windsor Park on August 18th the date for the next step on the comeback trail.

Tyson Fury will fight again in August and expects to be kept busy by his promoter Frank Warren as he looks to claim a world title before the end of 2018.

"I've been realistic from the beginning that we're not going to put him in with big names early on", Warren said at a news conference.

Fury is clearly intent on reclaiming the world title belts he felt were wrongly stripped from him in the wake of his win over Klitschko, and in particular securing a major showdown with reigning champion Anthony Joshua.

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. The thing is, with Tyson, he's got a massive heart.
