Tyson Fury got back to his winning ways on Saturday night against Sefer Seferi in Manchester after the Albanian quit on his stool before the fifth round.
Promoter Frank Warren confirmed Fury’s next date and ‘The Gypsy King’ will officially continue his road back to the top on August 18.
“He’s going to be fighting on the 18th of August on the Carl Frampton undercard in Belfast,” told Warren to Boxing Social.
But at the post-fight press conference, Warren did urge Fury to lose more weight before his next challenge in Belfast. The promoter also told that Fury’s future opponent will be more skilled than the 39-year-old Seferi.
“Tyson needs to lose even more weight before he fights on Carl Frampton’s card at Windsor Park on August 18. He is also aware there will be a higher calibre opponent,” said Warren according to the Daily Mail.
Warren also outlined the long-run plan for Fury which includes a clear target – winning back world title honours.
“I’ve been realistic from the beginning that we’re not going to put him in with big names early on. He needs to get the ring rust off. We picked Seferi because he had gone ten rounds with Manuel Charr.
“The objective is to get him ready to fight for the world title as soon as possible,” he said.
As for the potential clashes against Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder, it’s looking likely that the heavyweight trio will collide next year.
“I think Anthony Joshua is fighting Alexander Povetkin in September so he will not fight until next year now and I think Wilder has got a mandatory. In the meantime we have to get Tyson more competitive fights.”
