Tyson Fury eyeing title fight before end of 2018

Tyson Fury wins comeback after opponent is retired

Tyson Fury wins comeback after opponent is retired

Tyson Fury made a winning return to boxing on Saturday night, forcing Sefer Seferi to retire after four rounds of their heavyweight clash in Manchester.

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. But he took me a few rounds, which I was more than happy with. The caliber of opponents will keep on rising. I will be better next time.

"The opponent was small and light".

Seferi was seven inches shorter and almost five stones lighter than Fury, who used his reach and height to ensure there was never any danger of an upset.

Greater challenges lie ahead for Fury as he bids to reclaim the heavyweight world titles he famously won against Wladimir Klitschko in November 2015. He needs to get the ring rust off.

Promoter Frank Warren plans on Fury fighting again in Belfast, probably at Windsor Park, on August 18.

Fury played to the crowd in the first round and looked a bit embarrassed when Seferi tried to rough up the former champion.

"We picked Sefer Seferi because he fought Manuel Charr and gone 10 rounds with him", Warren said.

Fury, who is 28 pounds heavier than when he fought Klitschko, will be encouraged by his performance, but victory should be kept in perspective.

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.

But just boxing again seemed unlikely at times for Fury during a troublesome period away from boxing.

The Manchester boxer suffered depression and admitted to drinking too much and taking cocaine, before it was revealed he tested positive for a banned steroid.

After ending Klitshcko's near-decade-long reign of the heavyweight division, Fury received his boxing licence in January after accepting a backdated two-year doping ban.
