Former heavyweight champion Fury wins on boxing comeback

Former heavyweight champion Fury wins on boxing comeback

Seferi's unsatisfactory withdrawal sent the boos - and the occasional drinks bottle - cascading down from the upper tiers, but for Fury at least, it is simply a case of reigniting a career that still promises much.

"I'll be better next time".

His promoter Frank Warren is evidently intent on keeping Fury busy as he begins his long road back towards the top, and he is next scheduled to fight at Windsor Park in Belfast on August 18.

"I seem to have everyone behind me and I'm coming back and fighting for them".

The 29-year-old's last fight saw him defeat Wladimir Klitschko to become the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world, but excruciatingly public struggles with addiction and mental health issues prevented any defences of the most prestigious of crowns.

So easy that Fury could afford to joke about it early on and glance out at a scuffle taking place in the crowd. 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.

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.

"If I'm brutally honest I could have knocked him out in ten seconds". Fury was into stride and Seferi was pulled out of the fight before the fifth.

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.

Just boxing again was an achievement for Fury, whose life span out of control after ending Klitschko's nine-and-half year reign.

Fury's English rival Anthony Joshua, the WBA-IBF-WBO champion, and American Deontay Wilder, the WBC champion, remain distant targets for Fury, whose priority now will be to build up some momentum against tougher opponents.

"I felt fantastic, it was like having my debut again", Fury said in the ring.
