Fury Triumphant In His In-Ring Return

Tyson Fury’s first boxing match since 2015 was certainly an event.

It starts with Fury kissing opponent Sefer Seferi before the fight even began and Fury showboating throughout half of the fight. The bout was short, as Seferi’s corner did not want the fight to go on further after the fourth round ended.

Seferi was unable to land any significant punches on Fury, but Fury moved and threw punches as if he was at a sparring session. Fury barely threw any punches in the first two rounds, but started to get semi-serious in the third and fourth round by throwing a few solid combinations. Fury did Ali Shuffles, turned his back to Seferi on one instance and looked more interested in the crowd than in the fight, but at no point was he in any danger. Fury’s huge size advantage prevented Seferi from making the fight a competitive one.

This was Fury’s first fight since upsetting Wladimir Klitschko in 2015 to win the unified WBA, WBO and IBF heavyweight titles. Fury has not fought due to a lengthy drug suspension and multiple announcements that he would retire from the sport. His suspension ended late last year and got his boxing licence back earlier this year, allowing Fury to start his quest back to the top of the boxing world.

With Fury not taking any real damage in the bout, Fury will only take a quick rest before fighting again. Promoter Frank Warren announced Fury’s next fight will take place on August 18 in Belfast, Northern Ireland, fighting on the undercard of interim WBO featherweight champion Carl Frampton’s next fight.

Tyson Fury vs. Sefer Seferi: Heavyweight Bout

Round 1: Fury starts off by showboating. Fury then throws a couple of jabs, but Seferi starts to fight back and lands a couple of right hooks, but Fury’s height advantage is almost comical.

Round 2: Fury continues to lightly throw punches and throw in a taunt or two in between. As Seferi moves around the ring, Fury momentarily turns his back to Seferi and the referee is telling Fury to stop with the shenanigans.

Round 3: A brawl in the crowd that started in the second round continues in the third round as Fury finally starts to get serious. So far, this has not been a fight, barely qualifying as a sparring session. Fury lands a solid right uppercut at the end of the round.

Round 4: Fury starts to throw a couple of combinations that start to hurt Seferi and Seferi tries to fight back, but is unsuccessful. Fury is starting to get serious. After the round, Seferi’s corner decides to give up.
