Tyson Fury made his comeback to the ring on June 9 in his hometown of Manchester after a two-and-a-half year hiatus from the sport.
The contest was viewed by many as ‘circus-like and farcical’ as the two men barely traded blows for the opening two rounds.
When Fury eventually began to put some combinations together and land some shots, the 39-year-old Sefer Seferi decided to concede after being clipped by an uppercut in the dying moments of the fourth round.
Fury will return to the ring on August 18 on the Carl Frampton vs Luke Jackson undercard in Belfast against an opponent who is yet to be named.
New Zealand heavyweight and former WBO champion Joseph Parker will face Dillian Whyte on July 28 at the O2 Arena in London, but he may have his eyes already on the Gypsy King.
The South Auckland born heavy hitter recently spoke to Boxingscene.com regarding Tyson Fury’s comeback to the ring, and he shares the same opinion as most boxing fans.
“I feel like it is great for the division because he brings this excitement with the character that he has. He mocks you and mocks you. I am glad he is back,” Parker said.
Fury has attacked many of his fellow heavyweights recently via social media, calling them ‘overrated’ and a group of ‘bums’.
“I think he just says whatever he wants to say or whatever comes to his mind. I don’t think he really thinks about it. You can’t blame him though, he still thinks he is the best and that he can beat the champ.
"If I had the opportunity to fight him I would love to fight him."
The bout against Dillian Whyte will be Parker’s third fight in a row contested in the United Kingdom, and he wouldn’t mind making it four in a row, if a fight against Fury can be made in the near future.
“It could be a great option. He is one of the best in our era and hopefully he can get back to what he was before,” concluded Parker.
The heavyweight division is currently in the best shape it has been in for decades, with the likes of Anthony Joshua, Deontay Wilder, Tyson Fury, Joseph Parker, Dillian Whyte and Kubrat Pulev all vying to become the lineal heavyweight champion of the world.
Parker has had plenty of time to reflect on his effort against AJ and remains proud of his work despite the result.
He believes the experience of being involved in a mega-fight in front of 78,000 people will only help him when he touches gloves with Dillian Whyte come July 28.
