Fury Preparing For Seferi Like A Title Fight
While Sefer Seferi isn’t Anthony Joshua or Deontay Wilder, Tyson Fury is preparing like his 39 year old opponent is a world heavyweight champion.
After being away from the ring for nearly three years, Fury returns to boxing on June 9th in Manchester against Seferi, who has fought primarily at cruiserweight in his career, with his only loss being to Manuel Charr in 2016.
Fury said: “I’m taking him deadly serious. This is a world title fight for me. Every one of these people who come to fight me are challenging me for my lineal heavyweight status.
“I think he’s good, I think he’s good enough. Any man who’s had 24 fights and only lost one on points and never been knocked out can’t be a pushover.
“But if I’m as good as I think I am, I should beat him comfortably. If I’m useless, I’ll lose and you can’t say fairer than that.”
Fury says Seferi was chosen for his durability, claiming he needs an endurance test following his layoff.
“These Albanian fellas are very, very tough,” Fury said. “I need the rounds because I’ve been out for a long time.”
“I need rounds. I don’t need a knockout after 10 seconds. I need someone who’s tough, can take the punches and who can keep coming forward and put me under pressure.”
