The former heavyweight champion of the world Tyson Fury cruised his way to a fourth-round victory after a rather odd and farcical matchup in Manchester.
It was a strange affair in the Manchester Arena last night but after 32 months spent on the sidelines, Tyson Fury clinched his comeback win after an admittedly easy four-round showdown.
He was never going to be thrown to the sharks straight off the bat but for the bout’s duration, Tyson didn’t appear overly fussed with making things too competitive. After about two rounds of playfighting, he did begin throwing with more intent and before long the coaching team of his opponent Sefer Seferi had seen enough, calling a halt to the fight – giving the Manchester-native his first victory in 924 days.
A scuffle in the crowd and an animated post-fight speech were the highlights but according to Frank Warren, this exhibition of sorts will act as a gateway to tougher matchups.
“His third or fourth fight could be for a title.” ?
“We’d go for @TonyBellew before the end of the year.” ?

August 18 in Belfast will be the next time we see the Gypsy King step into the ring and with the road back into title contention now in front of him, who knows if he can reach the heights that saw him upset the legendary Wladimir Klitschko back in 2015.
