Tyson Fury vs Sefer Seferi
After 30 months of inactivity, former WBA, IBF, WBO heavyweight world champion, Tyson Fury, makes his ring return, in his home city of Manchester, taking on Madedonian, Sefer Seferi.
Fury weighs in at 276, very light comapred to what he had scaled during the layoff, but still the heaviest he's ever fought at. Seferi weighs in at 210. The size difference is very clear, Seferi, also, 10 years older than Fury, and although he has a good record (23-1) his opposition has been poor, many people question whether Fury should be fighting a more difficult opponent.
The fight is not entertaining, Fury seems to want to showboat, Seferi looks like he simply doesn't know what to do, as well as looking half the size of Fury. Fury lands the jab in round 1, just a couple of times, probably takes a nothing round. Fury continues to move in round 2, ups his work rate slightly, but is still very negative, Fury looks lethargic, but seems to be able to get the better of Seferi. Rounds 3 and 4 are slightly better from Fury, he defends well, lands some power shots, but it is still a poor fight, Fury seems to be holding back, not trying his best. After 4 underwhelming rounds, Seferi quits on his stool.
Fury does not impress, does not make a statement in his ring return, but he starts fighting again, gets back to winning ways.
