Fury face Seferi in comeback bout after a 3-year hiatus

While Warren questioned whether Seferi could have a portion of his purse withheld for his feeble effort, Fury shrugged off the unsatisfactory ending, insisting he had enjoyed every minute of his ring return.

Tyson Fury won his heavyweight comeback after opponent Sefer Seferi was retired by his corner after four rounds.

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.

"I opted for a bigger opponent but we couldn't really get anybody, there was nobody available".

Seferi has fought much of his career at welterweight, but if the 37-year-old's 2016 effort against Manuel Charr is an indicator, Fury may have some mild trouble on his hands come showtime.

"The opponent was quite short and he was light which meant he was quick", Fury said afterwards. But he took me a few rounds, which I was happy with.

"I'll be better next time".

Seferi was seven inches shorter and almost five stones lighter than Fury, who used his reach and height to ensure there was never any danger of an upset. He needs to get the ring rust off.

Fury made short work of Seferi as the pair of them exchanged a kiss, amusing looks but very few punches before the Albanian quit on his stool at the end of the 4th round.

Fury in particular was clearly distracted by the fight between a group of thugs and the events have of course taken social media by storm.

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

Fury believes he will soon be ready to take on the likes of heavyweight champions Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder.

After twice pulling out of rematches with Klitschko, Fury then admitted problems with mental health, drinking too much and cocaine use before it was revealed he failed a drugs test for the banned steroid nandrolone in February 2015.

Fury was given a backdated two-year doping ban, and he declared his boxing career finished as he piled on the pounds.
