Tyson Fury outclasses Seferi

Share

Sereri weighed-in at 210 pounds for their 10-round bout, which will stream live in the US exclusively on SHOWTIME Sports social media platforms.

It was always comfortable for Fury in his first fight since winning the World Boxing Association (WBA), International Boxing Federation (IBF) and World Boxing Organisation (WBO) titles from Ukraine's Wladimir Klitschko on points in November 2015. Boxing broadcaster Ray Flores and analyst Chris Mannix will deliver pre and post-fight analysis from STAPLES Center in Los Angeles for the SHOWTIME Sports audience.

It was all too easy for the former world heavyweight champion against little-known Sefer Seferi at Manchester Arena. In the co-feature, Jermell Charlo will face Austin Trout for the WBC Super Welterweight World Championship.

"We took Seferi, who had a good record and a tough chin and he took me a few rounds". I am determined to enjoy my career this time around and not take anything for granted.

Despite the fact the Gypsy King was making his comeback after almost three years out of the sport, boxing fans simply could not get over how ridiculous the bout at the Manchester Arena was.

The contest at times resembled a pantomine with Fury gurning and throwing his arms into the air through much of the opening round.

Sporadic thick right hands from Fury had Seferi on the back-foot in the fourth, and his corner evidently made a decision to spare him further drawn-out punishment when they summoned Edwards and withdrew their man at the end of the round.

With boos ringing down from the upper tiers, it was hardly the victorious homecoming Fury had in mind - but much more relevant contests are sure to follow.

"I believe you should go for the hardest ones first".

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

Fury will soon be back in action as it was confirmed he would fight on the undercard of Carl Frampton's mega-event at Windsor Park on August 18.

The fight in the stands was perhaps more entertaining than Fury's win.

Frampton indicated that he would be willing to fight the victor of Warrington and Selby, however, Warrington feels a Belfast fight with Frampton could be premature for him.

Frampton's opponent has not yet been named.
