Tyson Fury: Seferi Didn't Come To Fight, He Came To Run Around

He's never going to conform and be like Roger Federer or Anthony Joshua, who he wants to fight next year.

With Fury occupying the spotlight centre-stage, his Albanian opponent has been relegated to the shadows, leaving it to the former heavyweight champion to big him up.

Joshua and Wilder are in talks to face each other in early 2019, while Warren plans on keeping Fury active until a world title shot happens, with his next bout scheduled to be at Belfast´s Windsor Park, Northern Ireland on August 18.

"Looking at both fighters' records, the gulf in class between the two is obviously apparent and the fact that Seferi's only ever defeat came when he stepped out of cruiserweight and up to heavyweight late previous year at a much lower level leaves the impression he could have a long night on his hands on Saturday". But Seferi is no Marvin Hagler or Joe Frazier and Fury knows the hard graft will come over the following 18 months.

"We keep moving onward and keep moving forwards and the objective is to get him into contention to fight for the world title as soon as possible". I got four rounds instead of ten seconds.

With a height advantage of 10 inches and weighing almost five stone heavier than the Albanian, Fury's camp are hopeful that they will find a taller and heavier opponent for his Belfast bout.

The victory was Fury's first fight since his stunning win over Wladimir Klitschko in November 2015, and marked a successful return to boxing.

"I'll be better next time".

The former IBF, WBA and WBO champion was absent from the ring due to a lengthy wrangle over an alleged doping offence, which Fury denied committing.

However, through a combination of Fury's antics and Seferi's decision to drop out, plenty were left angered at the spectacle as a whole.

Tyson Fury will fight again in August and expects to be kept busy by his promoter Frank Warren as he looks to claim a world title before the end of 2018. "It has been a long time out of the ring, I was not in a rush, taking time when I started to get going, they pulled him out".

Fury was stripped of his boxing licence as he fought a ban over a failed drugs test, while his much-publicised battle against depression contributed to a weight gain which led to doubts over his boxing future. He needs to get the ring rust off.

Tyson Fury is a larger than life character, and his career has seen many ups and downs.
