Tyson Fury recorded victory on his comeback to boxing

Seferi quit on the stool after four rounds of action against the returning Fury on Saturday night in Manchester, leaving those in attendance dissatisfied.

Fury only got going in the fourth round and his brief exhibition of power convinced Sefer Seferi's corner to pull out the Switzerland-based Albanian before the start of the fifth round. "In the meantime we have to get Tyson more competitive fights". "I will be better next time".

"He took a couple of hard punches and didn't want to know".

"Because I got high" begun to blare out over the speakers, but it quickly became clear Fury had changed the lyrics to reflect his own story. I won't take anything for granted and I'll enjoy every moment.

With blood streaming down his face, the former lightweight title holder Flanagan (33-1, 13 KOs), who suffered a deep cut on the forehead after an accidental head butt in the seventh round, couldn't overcome the aggressive Hooker (24-0-3, 16 KOs), who just like training partner Errol Spence Jr., had to travel overseas to win his first world title.

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. Fury then piled on the pounds - he claimed to have lost eight stones in preparation for Seferi - and served a backdated drugs ban for testing positive for a banned steroid in February 2015.

Speaking afterward, Fury's promoter Frank Warren did reveal that Fury would be on the card for Carl Frampton's Windsor Park bout later this year. Fury is likely to face a tougher opponent in his next fight set for September in a division now ruled by world title holders Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder. He needs to get the ring rust off.

"I've been realistic from the beginning that we're not going to put him in with big names early on", Warren said at a news conference. We picked Seferi because he had gone ten rounds with Manuel Charr.

One thing is for sure, his next fight has to be against a decent heavyweight who can match up to him more in size and stature.
