Tyson Fury made his long-awaited comeback last Saturday in front of a packed Manchester Arena and got a loud response from his hometown crowd as he teased the audience with a couple of songs before entering the ring.

“It was one of the best receptions I’ve seen in British boxing. Return of the mac, big style. It was an excellent reception. I applaud the crowd for it,” said Fury exclusively to Boxing Social ringside after the fight.
But this one did not go down without a bit of controversy. Sefer Seferi proved out to be a lot less tougher than expected as he refused to continue after round four. Fury taunted the 39-year-old opponent numerous times during the fight and clearly did not see him as a threat.
‘The Gypsy King’ explained that he wanted to put on a show for the fans.
“Listen, it was a combat fight. I took my time. I had a bit of fun as you can see. I was having a joke around. It’s entertainment,” he continued.
In terms of action, the fight did not offer much as Fury toyed with his opponent Seferi, who wasn’t overly anxious to engage.
“Obviously he didn’t fancy having a go. But it was what it was. He tried to come forward a few times and I nullified it. Caugh him with a few shots and it was a matter of time before I chinned him,” stated Fury.
“I was happy with it overall,” he concluded.
Fury will return to action on August 18 in Belfast according to promoter Frank Warren.
