Tyson Fury starts his comeback with farcical win

Tyson Fury starts his comeback with farcical win

After two years and seven months away, Tyson Fury returned to the ring with a four-round win over Sefer Seferi on Saturday.

Fighting for the first time since he wrested the world heavyweight title from Wladimir Klitschko over two-and-a-half years ago, Fury gurned and showboated his way through much of the contest and earned a ticking-off from referee Phil Edwards. I feel like I have been a goldfish in a tank, trapped and now I am getting released back into the river where I belong. It was like I was having my debut again. I think you can come back good but I'm a bit iffy on whether he will be the same Tyson Fury as before. But having spent his entire career bar one fight competing at cruiserweight, and being almost a foot shorter and about five stone lighter than his opponent, he has the odds stacked against him. "I know he was a three-time Swiss national amateur champion and was 21-fights unbeaten before he lost to Manuel Charr on points, who's now the WBA regular champion, but I haven't really seen much of him or his fights".

"I'm sure Frank's going to keep me busy and the calibre of opponents will keep rising".

Tyson Fury will fight again this summer on the undercard of Carl Frampton's mega-event at Windsor Park.

Live coverage for the Frank Warren promoted event will be provided by BT Sport with United Kingdom sportscasters John Rawling providing the blow-by-blow and Richie Woodhall the analysis. That's where he'll be. It won't be possible to tell until he goes into those later rounds how such a quick and dramatic weight loss could affect him, but we won't get to see that yet. The name of the game now is to find an opponent.

Keith Davidson's lawsuit , filed in federal court and obtained by CNN , also targeted Daniels' attorney Michael Avenatti . Giuliani said the $130,000 that Daniels was paid as part of the nondisclosure agreement was "like a nuisance thing".

"I'm not here to dwell on the past, I'm here to move forward", added Fury.

The 29-year-old is adamant his evident success in shaping up for a ring return will increase his popularity levels and, more importantly, serve as an inspiration for others who may be going through similar health issues.

The prospect of an all-British showdown with Bellew was presented to Fury in his post-fight press conference but he dismissed it out of hand, insisting that he would prefer to focus on larger opposition as he continues down his comeback trail.

The former world heavyweight champion was never likely to be troubled by an opponent whom he out-weighed by over four-and-a-half stone and towered over by a foot.
