Frank Warren reveals what annoyed him the most about Tyson Fury vs Sefer Seferi

Tyson Fury v Sefer Seferi - Heavyweight Fight

Tyson Fury marked his long-awaited return to the ring with a comfortable four-round victory over 39-year-old Sefer Seferi.

Saturday night’s fight was farcical at times with Fury dancing and taunting his opponent in the opening rounds before a huge brawl in the crowd stole the attention of the fans, cameras, and even the fighters, with Fury in particular seeming very distracted.

Fury’s promoter Frank Warren was not impressed by his Albanian opponent in his defeat to the 29-year-old Englishman, saying he wasn’t keen on the fact that he opted not to return from his corner after the fourth round.

Warren stated that he’d picked Seferi as Fury’s comeback fight as he’d “gone the distance” with WBA world heavyweight champion Manuel Charr, as such, his performance on Saturday night fell far short of expectations.

Warren was nonetheless pleased that Fury had his first fight back “under his belt”.

Fury had been sidelined for almost 1,000 days since 2015 - his last fight being the triple title-winning defeat of Wladimir Klitschko.

In the meantime, he has battled depression and substance abuse problems, and faced a period of UK Anti-Doping-imposed ineligibility.

Fury lost “eight stone in four months” in preparation for his return to heavyweight boxing, but his promoter Warren says there’s still more work to be done and suggested he may need to lose another “stone and a half” to get back into peak fighting condition.

Warren ruled out veteran Manuel Charr as a potential next opponent for Fury, but suggested that a fight against American veteran Shannon Briggs could be on the cards if he “can get a [UK] license.

The promoter expressed doubt as to whether this would be the case given that the two-time former world heavyweight champion is now 46 years old.
