Fans Left Outraged At 'Farcical' Tyson Fury Comeback Fight

Tyson Fury takes the acclaim of the crowd after defeating Sefer Seferi at Manchester Arena

Tyson Fury eased to victory in his comeback fight as Sefer Seferi retired after four rounds at the Manchester Arena on Saturday night. Fury played to the crowd: at one point, he turned 360 degrees to face his reluctant opponent, put his hands in the air and stuck his tongue out. "Joshua is conservative, holds back, everything comes off the jab, whereas Dillian Whyte wears his heart on his sleeve and that'll make for a more entertaining fight". "Tyson Fury to win by decision or technical decision is our recommended bet and is available at 5/1".

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

The next opponent needs to be better after this.

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.

The Manchester Arena was not quite full, but it was pretty close to its 20,000 capacity and they liked what they saw [even if there was not much of it].

In the build-up to his comeback fight this weekend, Tyson Fury has been keen to emphasise his happiness, fitness and focus, as you might expect.

People find Fury a compelling and amusing figure. And a lot are interested in following his next journey.

"He claims to be in the best shape of his life, he says himself that he's fitter and sharper than ever before, so it'll be interesting to see how he performs".

"It was what it was", said Fury.

"I'm going to have a world title by the end of the year". Joshua in many ways is the antithesis of Fury: a marketing dream who has universal appeal.

Fight No26 will surely bring win No26 for Fury.

Seferi, who was almost five stones lighter and seven inches smaller, did show some ambition early on but Fury's height and movement ensured there was never going to be an upset at Manchester Arena.

Afterwards Fury, whom his promoter Frank Warren said will fight again in Belfast on August 18, was his usual whirl of contradictions insisting Warren serve up a 7ft 2in opponent for his next bout - or alternatively, a man with one leg - and pouring scorn on the rest of his heavyweight rivals.

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.
