Promoter Frank Warren reveals date and location of next Tyson Fury fight

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

Tyson Fury's return to the boxing ring was marred by freaky crowd trouble, which saw fight fans turn on each other and brawl in the middle of the Manchester Arena.

Seferi's unsatisfactory withdrawal sent the boos - and the occasional drinks bottle - cascading down from the upper tiers, but for Fury at least, it is simply a case of reigniting a career that still promises much.

"I hoped for a bigger opponent but we couldn't really get anyone, there was no one available".

"I've had massive support throughout all my troubles, everybody's really been helping me and spurring me on", Fury said on Friday.

Former heavyweight champion Fury had not fought since dethroning Ukrainian Wladimir Klitschko in 2015 and suffered various drug, alcohol and mental health issues since then.

I will go back home and have pizza and then get back on it tomorrow.

"He took me a few rounds so I'm happy with it".

Seferi is 39, has not boxed at an elite level, was 7 inches smaller and almost 70 pounds lighter than Fury.

It was not always pretty from Fury, but it allowed the 6ft 9in Englishman to shed some of the ring rust before moving on to harder tests.

Fury made short work of Seferi as the pair of them exchanged a kiss, amusing looks but very few punches before the Albanian quit on his stool at the end of the 4th round.

Seferi (23-2), a career cruiserweight, tried in vain to reach Fury's head with sluggish right uppercuts.

Fury, who is 28 pounds heavier than when he fought Klitschko, will be encouraged by his performance, but victory should be kept in perspective.

Tyson Fury's next fight will be on August 18th on the undercard of Carl Frampton's Belfast homecoming.

Joshua and Deontay Wilder, the American who holds the World Boxing Council (WBC) belt, remain distant targets for Fury as they are in talks to face each other. He received his boxing licence in January after accepting a backdated two-year doping ban.
