Fury marks boxing comeback with facile victory

Tyson Fury: Seferi Didn't Come To Fight, He Came To Run Around

Tyson Fury made his comeback last night after nearly three years out but the majority of the action came outside of the ring thanks to a massive brawl in the crowd at the Manchester Arena.

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

The contest at times resembled a pantomine with Fury gurning and throwing his arms into the air through much of the opening round. The events certainly took a shine off the main event of the night which was meant to signal the return of one of the best fighters in the world. I will go back home and have pizza and then get back on it tomorrow.

"I wanted to see Tyson get some more rounds".

"I've had a long time out the ring and I needed some rounds, so I was taking my time".

"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".

The deceased have been identified as Assistant Commandant Jitender Singh, SI Rajneesh, ASI Ramniwas and Constable Hansraj. Pakistan has not and what Pakistan does is its business. "How we respond to the betrayal is our job", 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.

Fury's titles are now in the hands of English rival Anthony Joshua, but promoter Frank Warren said fights against Joshua and Deontay Wilder, the World Boxing Council (WBC) champion from American, are a way off yet.

He vowed: "I'm happy to to be back and I'll take my career very seriously this time". He received his boxing licence in January after accepting a backdated two-year doping ban.

"About two weeks ago I passed Carl and I saw that he'd picked Selby to win so I said "Listen, Selby's having it and after that we'll have a chat and I wouldn't mind coming to Windsor Park and fighting you".

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. "In the meantime we have to get Tyson more competitive fights".
