Fury comebacks ends in facile fourth round victory

Fury comebacks ends in facile fourth round victory

After a two-and-a-half spell out of the ring, Fury looked relatively sharp against an outclassed opponent, who chose to pull out of the contest at the end of the fourth round.

Tyson Fury was not concerned about a lack of action during his four-round comeback win.

"I'm going to have a world title by the end of the year". "I learned two-and-a-half years is a long time to be out".

The pair spent more time talking to each other in the ring than exchanging punches, with Seferi's corner throwing in the towel as soon as Fury showed any sort of power.

"It meant miracles (to be back in the ring)".

'I wanted to fight, stand and have a fight with him.

"Thank you to everyone who supported me".

Angela Merkel's photo of Donald Trump at G7 drew a big response
The president also denied the G7 meetings were contentious but maintained his confrontational stance. Many social media users began to share Merkel's, suggesting there's noticeable tension in the photo.

"I was saving it for round five, because I said I would knock him out in round five".

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. Photo credit should read: Nick Potts/PA Wire.

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.

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.

With boos ringing down from the upper tiers, it was hardly the victorious homecoming Fury had in mind - but much more relevant contests are sure to follow.

Fury, 29, remains undefeated in 26 bouts but an untidy display in Manchester will not inspire confidence that he can regain his place at the top of the division.

Promoter Warren said: 'On the 18th of August at Windsor Park in Belfast. The name of the game is to get the fights in, then by the end of the year be in a position for a big, big fight'. I got four rounds in and TV exposure.
