Tyson Fury (26-0) has beaten Albanian heavyweight Sefer Seferi (23-2) in a comfortable comeback fight after two years away from the sport. THE GYPSY KING IS OFFICIALLY BACK, FOLKS!
Fury, who hadn’t fought since November 2015 where he dethroned Wladimir Klitschko, looked sharp on his return to the ring.
Following a period of inactivity which included an alleged failed drug test against him, Fury either relinquished or was stripped of his world titles.
But now he will be looking to recover those belts in the coming months after what was an expected victory on Saturday night.
Fury held a public workout at the National Football Museum in Manchester on Tuesday evening ahead of his fight against Seferi and even in those few hours, he looked sharper than his Albanian opponent.
Ben Davison, who was in Fury’s corner for tonight’s fight, is very hopeful of the Gypsy King’s chances in the coming months.
“Tyson Fury can do absolutely everything in the ring. He can box front-foot southpaw, back-foot southpaw, stand there and have a fight and he can do all those things as an orthodox fighter too,” Davison told ESPN. .
“Outside of the ring, the idea people have got about Tyson Fury is 100% unfair. He’s a stand-up man and that’s one of the first things I noticed with him. He says what he believes and he sticks to what he believes. He’s a very good man.”
In an exclusive interview with SPORTbible, Tyson Fury vowed to become heavyweight world champion, again.
A bout between Fury versus either Joshua or Wilder has been heavily muted, and he’s issued a message to the pair of undefeated world champions.
“They just a want a piece of me. I’m the lineal champion of the world. Wilder, if he wants a piece of it, he knows where to find me – Joshua the same.
“Both a pack of bitches, no good, can’t box.”
