Fury fails to impress as farcical return says little about his condition

0:33                                            Fury is taking nothing for granted against Seferi

0:33 Fury is taking nothing for granted against Seferi

"I'm sure Frank Warren is going to keep me busy and the calibre of opponents will keep rising", Fury said.

By the fourth it became apparent Fury, who sporadically unloaded right hands, could end the fight when ever he wished - but the decision was taken out of his hands by Seferi's corner when they withdrew their man at the end of the round.

Farce and Fury assailed Manchester in equal measure on Saturday night, as the former world heavyweight champion gurned around the ring for 12 minutes of his boxing comeback before his hopelessly inadequate opponent quit on his stool.

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.

"We took Seferi, who had a good record and a tough chin and he took me a few rounds". I got four rounds in and TV exposure.

Britain´s Tyson Fury (R) connects with a left against Albania´s Sefer Seferi during their heavyweight contest at the Manchester Arena in Manchester, northern England on June 9, 2018.

"I learned that two and a half years out of the ring was a long time. I´ll take my career very seriously this time and enjoy every moment".

"I'm out in Belfast in August so I can't wait for that", he said.

With a height advantage of 10 inches and weighing almost five stone heavier than the Albanian, Fury's camp are hopeful that they will find a taller and heavier opponent for his Belfast bout.

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. Fury then piled on the pounds - he claimed to have lost eight stones in preparation for Seferi - and served a backdated drugs ban for testing positive for a banned steroid in February 2015.

"The objective is to get him ready to fight for the world title as soon as possible". "I look at him the same way I look at [Anthony] Joshua, Wladimir [Klitshcko], [Deontay] Wilder, anybody. In the meantime we have to get Tyson more competitive fights".
