Tyson Fury Kisses His Opponent On Return To The Ring

Tyson Fury Is Back in the Ring

Tyson Fury Is Back in the Ring

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.

"We took Seferi, who had a good record and a tough chin and he took me a few rounds". That's why I want to fight him.

At 29, he is yet to take on a high-profile opponent and he would surely jump at the chance to meet Fury in the ring, even if it meant travelling to the United Kingdom for the first time his career.

"The calibre of opponents will keep on rising".

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. That's where he'll be.

"I've been realistic from the beginning that we're not going to put him in with big names early on", Warren said at a news conference.

'I was going to get in the ring, but then I got high, ' the song begins.

'As you can see he's still got a bit of weight to lose, you can see he needs the rounds and we just have to step up the opponents each time.

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

An nearly comical fight saw Fury with a six-inch height advantage over the Albanian - and his laughing, play-acting and tongue-pulling suggested he was not having to exert himself too much in his first fight for two and a half years. The objective is to get him ready to fight for the world title as soon as possible.

Fury could now face former WBC world cruiserweight champion Tony Bellew as he gears up towards a heavyweight clash.

The much heavier and taller Fury showed he could end the fight whenever he wished but the decision was taken out of his hands by Seferi's corner.

If he looked a little more serious from the second round onwards, it still felt like something of a non-event as the limited Seferi tried in vain to even reach Fury's head with his sluggish right uppercuts.
