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.

Good to see Fury's return is confirmed, the guy has a lot to prove, I'm not sold on Tyson Fury anymore, I think if he does compete at world level again, he will lose, but at least now, he will at least try to prove me and a lot of other people wrong, and rather than just talking, at least now it all this talk of coming back and taking over, at least that isn't hypothetical anymore, and he has actually taken a step towards trying to get to where he was when he pulled out that brilliant upset win against Klitschko in 2015.

I think his next opponent might be Shannon Briggs, I think the trash talk between those two hotheads, would certainly sell the fight. I think Fury vs Briggs would be a good match up, but for the age and career stage of Briggs. Briggs is 45 I believe, very old, and he has been in some tough fights, endured a long, toll taking career, especially with that 12 round beating against Vitali Klitschko. Briggs is very slow, gasses, probably doesn't take big shots as well he thinks he does, but this isn't the best Tyson Fury, he's coming off 30 months out, so maybe Briggs could make something of that. I think Briggs could challenge Fury for 2 or 3 rounds, if he could test his chin, then that could be interesting, but I would expect Fury, still 29, and in good condition, to stop Briggs in 6.

In my opinion, there is an obvious answer, I have no idea why there haven't been talks of it, and that is Charr vs Fury. If you can win a belt, win a belt, it is that simple, give top fighters like Joshua reason to fight you. Charr has a fight against Fres Oquendo, but after that, I think Frank Warren should pay Charr to come to the UK, and Fury can fight for a title. Charr is no bum, but if Fury wants to talk about ever fighting Joshua, Wilder, then fighting Charr, even straight off the layoff, let alone in his next fight, that shouldn't be too much of a challenge, given that Charr is past his prime, did beat Ustinov, but has a few losses, and is almost certainly the third best of the three heavyweight champions.

If not Briggs, then I think Fury might fight Andriy Rudenko, maybe Artur Szpilka, an opponent of that level, and I think that would be wise, fight either a guy who will give him rounds, like Rudenko, or a guy with skills and awkwardness, like Szpilka.

I think Fury should fight twice this year, if he impresses, more importantly, the second time, then I think next year, he could be back in the mix. I don't doubt that Fury, in the condition he is in now, if he has missed boxing, is in a better place mentally, can be good, is capable of winning a world title against a certain level of opponent, but it is almost guaranteed that he will never be as good as he was, certainly never as good as he could have been, and I do not think he can unify the division, I think he had the potential to do that, I think he had a few performances in him that were better than against Klitschko, but now, that is not the case, and if he fights a Wilder or Joshua, even in tip top shape, he will lose.

Gold's picture

He is going to fight an absolute bum like Raphael Zumbano Love. I would be very surprised if it was someone like Briggs because they would have announced him as the opponent by now to build up hype. Fury looks to be in good shape so far in preparation for this fight, I didn't think he would even get to this point.

Champion97's picture

No he didn't hire a new trainer and lose 120 lbs just to not fight ever again, I knew he would get a fight. That's true now you mention it, still got a few weeks to go though, but I agree that it seems less and less likely as time goes on.

Let's hope fights a better opponent than that! I think Andriy Rudenko is the perfect opponent for Fury's first fight back, "no not interested in that fight, Rudenko got schooled by Hughie who is unproven and Browne who was never that good", well, it is his first fight back after 30 months out, and Rudenko has never been stopped, also, there is setting the bar higher than Zumbano Love, but there is also rushing it, Fury needs to get his activity back before he fights opponents who are more of a threat to him. "Don't like the fight, Rudenko not an exciting fighter and not marketable", it's Tyson Fury's return, tickets will be sold!, doesn't so much matter who he fights, not at this stage.

Gold's picture

Sorry, I should have clarified. I meant going from being suspended, retired, and fat to getting fit again, regaining his license, signing with a promoter, and having a date booked. Rudenko would be fine in my view as well. Rudenko is a lower level journeyman type, Zumbano Love is just a bum. As long as he turns it around quickly and fights someone like Briggs I don't think Zumbano Love is the end of the world though.

Champion97's picture

Oh I see.

Agreed. I don't think Fury vs Briggs would be great to be honest, I think Briggs is far too old, he has taken so much damage, he is very lethargic, probably doesn't take punches anywhere near as well as he thinks he does, and to think he has always been a fighter who gasses, I think for 2 rounds, could be a good fight, but really, surely, for this year, if you are Tyson Fury, fight Charr!, win a belt, give Joshua and Wilder reason to fight you!

Gold's picture

It wouldn't be a great fight, if Fury is even partially what he once was he will beat Briggs easily. I don't think Charr is a good idea but it isn't the worst idea either. The WBA paper championship means nothing in terms of him getting a fight with Wilder and/or Joshua. For Fury, getting big fights is just about rebuilding his public profile, which fighting people who talk trash like Briggs will do. He also needs to show that the old flame can be rekindled versus this lesser opposition, make people believe that he can box Joshua like he did with Wlad. If he does these two things he will certainly get a match with Wilder or Joshua, being able to promote the fights by talking trash is a great asset to him building himself back up.

Champion97's picture

Why not? Version of the title. Matthysse is a world champion, so surely, so it Charr, same bekt at a different weight.

To me it isn't much of a mystery, he can still box, but he will never be as good as he was, definitely never as good as he could have been.

Gold's picture

To an extent championships only mean as much as the person who won them and holds them, but the WBA regular is absolutely worthless. Sanctioning bodies can logically only have one champion per weight class and the regular is just a paper title to collect sanctioning fees. Matthysse is not a world champion and should not be after beating Kiram, Thurman is the rightful WBA champion. Fury winning the WBA regular wouldn't give him any increased leverage or reason for Joshua to fight him over fighting someone else who is at Charr's level but is a better draw. Fury's draw as an opponent for Joshua or Wilder is that he has accomplished more than anyone outside of Joshua at Heavyweight and he can promote a fight. To illustrate how worthless the WBA regular is, Povetkin is the WBA's mandatory while Charr is the regular champion. How does that make any sense?

How do you know that about Fury when we haven't seen him in the ring yet?

Gold's picture

If this comes off as aggressive it is just because I think the WBA is the worst sanctioning body by far, no ill will towards you.

Champion97's picture

I know, no worries.

Champion97's picture

Well for a start, what I do know, is that you can't make too much logical sense of this, because everyone, and I mean everyone, is somewhat confused by the WBA.
Put it this way, Lucas Browne is a former world champion, he will go down as that, Lucas Matthysse was very emotional after winning the WBA title, and why is it that Pacquiao is fighting him?, for the same reason there were talks of Thurman fighting after the Kiram win. Ryota Murata is a world champion, so is Charr, just the way it is. Surely it would because for whatever reason, Fury would have a version of the WBA, Joshua, Wilder, would want to be the one and only world champion, surely, there is something to be gained by beating Charr and in this hypothetical scenario, by extension, Fury, for the same reason Matthysse is a man to beat at 147. I don't know, it is confusing, but just because the officialdom is a mess, doesn't mean aspects are necessarily worthless.

What I'm saying is, it is very predictable, against whoever he fights, he is very, very likely to win and look good, but will he ever be as good as Joshua and Wilded are now? Doubtful, Fury, in the shape he is in now, 29, he should definitely be well capable of winning various titles, and against a certain moderation of opponent, a world title, but after 30 months out, been obese time and time again, substance abuse, no consistency, mental health issues, he will never be as good as he was, I highly doubt, but on the other hand, a heavyweight, under 30, training hard, in good shape, still with experience, serious about gettkng his activity back, nothing stopping him from still being very, very good at any level, I highly doubt. It is predictable!

Gold's picture

Their title system makes sense in that you know who the real champion is, it just doesn't make sense because each sanctioning body should only have one champion. If there is a Super champion, they are the real champion and everyone else is just a paper champion. If there isn't a Super champion, whoever holds the unnamed "WBA Champion" title is the real champion and everyone else is a paper champion. None of those guys are world champions dude, I don't know what to tell you. Anthony Joshua is the real WBA Heavyweight Champion, Thurman is the real WBA Welterweight Champion, Golovkin is the real WBA Middleweight Champion. Pacquiao is fighting Matthysse because it makes money, that's what he fights for at this stage of his career. The winner of Joshua/Wilder, if that happens, would be the one and only WBA champion because each sanctioning body can logically only have one champion per division. Matthysse's title means nothing at Welterweight because Thurman holds the real title, but he does have a name that is likely larger than his actual skill at this point, therefore he is a worthwhile fight for some.

Oh yeah, I agree he will very likely win versus the low-level opposition. I agree it is likely he will still be in good form but he has had a really long break so I am going to withhold my judgment personally.

Champion97's picture

I think Seferi will try to work his way forward, a very short fighter has to close the range before he lets shots go. I think for a couple of rounds, Seferi will move his head, try to cut the distance, but he will take the only clean shots landed in the early rounds, not many though, I think for a couple of rounds, Fury's rhythm will be off, he'll be tense, very defensive. I think when Seferi lands a good shot, his first good shot in the fight, Fury will react, blink, but he won't be in serious trouble, and if Seferi tries to build on it, the bigger, younger, higher calibre fighter will put him back in his place. I think Fury slow down in rounds 7 and 8, but I think he has the skill and authority take rests, control the pace, and land the better shots, more of them. If Seferi tries to take advantage of Fury's fatuige, he will be made to miss with basically everything, and he'll also fade down the stretch. I think Seferi will try to rally late, but the younger fighter will find the extra gas in the tank, and the bigger fighter will have the better of the inside battle, overpower his smaller opponent.

I think Fury wins this by UD, landslide on all the cards, at least 98-92.

Yep, my bad.

SalTnutZ1's picture

You're all good. I just wanted to make sure. Good analysis/prediction. I think it will go in a similar fashion, or a late stoppage by Fury just due to size. I think Seferi is just slightly bigger than his brother, who is also a Cruiser, and he is 5'11. So that weight and height difference will be massive.

Champion97's picture

Tyson Fury has recently said he might persue a medical career after boxing, I think that is brilliant, I didn't know he was that much of an academic high flyer. Fury's days are numbered in the ring I think, I think his comeback, at the top level, ultimately, will not go well for him, but boxing aside, he could have a great career in medicine if that works out for him, and he is very young, has plenty of time left in that field, boxing is a particularly age restricting job.

Champion97's picture

Thanks but I the link didn't work, oh well, I might watch the whole Charr fight.
It would brilliant if Seferi beat Fury!

SalTnutZ1's picture

I certainly hope he presses him, that would be amazing. We know shorter fighters can tough Fury, as we saw with Cunningham, so it is possible!

Champion97's picture

Would be funny, in your face big mouth fat boy, haha! I know he's good, but I hate Fury, nothing to personal, I just don't like bullies, hypocrites and people who discriminate, Fury is all those things.

SalTnutZ1's picture

I totally get that man and I'm right there with ya. Don't care for him personally, but respect the hell out of the talent(when he's right that is). I wonder how long it takes him to line up a big fight, assuming all goes well. I think the Champs will make him go through a Whyte, Miller, or Parker before he gets to them. But, I do know how much of a potential draw that Fury v. Joshua is, so wouldn't be surprised if he gets a shot earlier than I'd expect.

Champion97's picture

I don't know what people were expecting, but I thought that was quite a fun fight, wasn't great, it was worth the watch though.

I thought that under the circumstances, Fury didn't do badly, his jab was very fast, he still was able to use his skill in some aspects, although his timing was inevitably off (not so much that he couldn't keep out boxing his opponent, to be fair), Fury kept in that rhythm, cut off the ring well, let Seferi swing away and miss, and he was able to put 3 punches together. Although I didn't think Fury looked terrible, I did think he seemed to be feeling the pace after 2 rounds, he didn't slow down, he picked it up, but only because he was so distracted from the first round, and Seferi was becoming predictable, and what was happening was that Fury could step back and take rests, breathe, and Seferi couldn't take any control over the pace, and I think in terms of conditioning, stamina, Fury might have lost 120lbs, he might be training hard, but this is professional boxing, and you have to have absolutely brilliant fitness at a certain level to do the rounds, I think Fury was going to tire. A lot of Fury's moves looked laboured in this fight, I don't think he can ever be the athlete he once was, and his chin, not at all tested in this fight, he was caught with one right hand in round 4, which I think he fixated on, and maybe he did feel that shot more than he should have done, but Fury has a lot to prove.

Seferi was technically very limited, in terms of desire, determination, he was very disappointing, he was at a terrible size disadvantage, but not badly conditioned, Fury's opposition could have been worse.

I think we can say for Fury, he has gotten 4 rounds under his belt, boxed OK, got rid of some ring rust, ultimately, fought, became a current fighter again, it is a start. I'm not convinced Fury can ever be as good as he once was, but I think he can still be very good if he keeps at it, builds on this performance, this win. Fury must not go off the wagon again, he has to fight again this year, the Manuel Charr fight would be the ideal fight for him, but whether or not it is Charr he fights, Fury has to fight once more this year, and he has to stay on point in the gym, nutritionally as well, because he cannot afford to be any less than a dedicated, disciplined athlete now.
