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

Farce and Fury assailed Manchester in equal measure on Saturday night, as the former world heavyweight champion gurned around the ring for 12 minutes of his boxing comeback before his hopelessly inadequate opponent quit on his stool.

His corner made a decision to spare the Albanian from further drawn-out punishment by withdrawing him at the end of the fourth round.

Tyson Fury made his comeback last night after nearly three years out but the majority of the action came outside of the ring thanks to a massive brawl in the crowd at the Manchester Arena.

TYSON FURY slammed Sefer Seferi for not turning up for a fight, but revealed he was very happy with his own performance.

"The opponent was quite short and he was light which meant he was quick", Fury said afterwards.

"He didn't come to fight, he came to run around the ring", Fury told a press conference.

"I wouldn't change a thing, and we move on to the next one".

"We took Seferi, who had a good record and a tough chin and he took me a few rounds". I got four rounds instead of ten seconds.

He hasn't fought since a shock defeat of Wladimir Klitschko in November 2015 saw Fury win the world title.

"I've had massive support throughout all my troubles, everybody's really been helping me and spurring me on", Fury said on Friday. I won't take anything for granted and I'll enjoy every moment.

Britain´s Tyson Fury (R) connects with a left against Albania´s Sefer Seferi during their heavyweight contest at the Manchester Arena in Manchester, northern England on June 9, 2018.

Promoter Frank Warren plans on Fury fighting again at Windsor Park in Belfast on August 18, on the undercard of WBO interim featherweight champion Carl Frampton's next fight.

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.

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.
