Tyson Fury: Heavyweight to fight on Carl Frampton undercard in August

Tyson Fury: Heavyweight to fight on Carl Frampton undercard in August

Promoter Frank Warren says a fight against either Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder, who holds all the world heavyweight titles between them, is not likely until later next year. It's about him getting the rust out of the system. "You can see that he's still got a bit of weight to lose and you can see that he needs the rounds and we'll just have to step up his opponents each time".

After four rounds in which Fury grinned and gloated - at one point earning a stern telling-off from referee Phil Edwards for his showboating - Seferi, who had barely thrown a punch in anger, declared he had had enough.

After the layoff, during which he put on eight stones and suffered from depression, Fury showed he is still in business but it was not fluent until he began swatting his considerably smaller and lighter opponent around the ring in the fourth round.

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. Big, slow, ugly fellows.

As he went about outscoring his opponent in each of the four rounds a brawl broke out among the Manchester Arena crowd.

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

I guess when you have a Fendi habit you got to do what you have to do you to support it", Saran said. Officers arrived shortly thereafter and made contact with Abraham , whom the complaint was about.

Frampton headlines a historic night in Belfast on August 18 and Fury has been added to the undercard.

After the fight, Fury told BT Sport 1: "Frank's going to keep me busy and I'm going to have a world title by the end of the year - that's a promise".

Frampton indicated that he would be willing to fight the victor of Warrington and Selby, however, Warrington feels a Belfast fight with Frampton could be premature for him.

"I was going to get in the ring, but then I got high, "I was going to beat up Wlad [Klitschko] again, but then I got high".

"I was saving it for round five, because I said I would knock him out in round five. The Leeds fans love an away day - a Leeds fan invasion into Belfast".
