Fury fails to impress as farcical return says little about his condition

Tyson Fury wins comeback after opponent is retired

Tyson Fury beats Sefer Seferi in comeback fight

Britain's Tyson Fury, left, punches Sefer Seferi.

The Gypsy King defeated Sefer Seferi on his long-awaited return to the ring at Manchester Arena on Saturday night.

Fury outweighs Seferi by more than four stone, a point he jokingly emphasised at Friday's weigh-in by picking up his opponent and cradling him in his arms.

"I opted for a bigger opponent but we couldn't really get anybody, there was nobody available".

The 29-year-old's last fight saw him defeat Wladimir Klitschko to become the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world, but excruciatingly public struggles with addiction and mental health issues prevented any defences of the most prestigious of crowns.

Fury coasted to victory over Seferi who was pulled out of the contest at the end of the fourth round.

"He took me a few rounds so I'm happy with it".

Warren plans to keep Fury busy but has no idea yet who he will face in his next fight at Windsor Park in Belfast, Northern Ireland, on August 18.

Canadian politicians welcome opportunity to host World Cup games
There's no guarantee Canada will have a team at the 2026 World Cup , the first time it will be hosted by more than one country. Their position was weakened by the expectation that four U.S. territories at the centre of a voting row will not take part.

Seferi was seven inches shorter and almost five stones lighter than Fury, who used his reach and height to ensure there was never any danger of an upset. I will be better next time.

Seferi (23-2), a career cruiserweight, tried in vain to reach Fury's head with sluggish right uppercuts.

Fury in particular was clearly distracted by the fight between a group of thugs and the events have of course taken social media by storm.

Germany's Manuel Charr, who holds the secondary WBA title, is one potential opponent for Fury in the next six months.

Confirmed: Harry and Meghan coming to NZ
The second exchange involved Harry telling Meghan that "Then there's the flypast and then we all look up to the sky". But one person who has been aiding Markle's transition into royal life is her husband, Prince Harry .

But Fury's time away away from boxing has been far from a laughing matter.

Joshua and Deontay Wilder, the American who holds the World Boxing Council (WBC) belt, remain distant targets for Fury as they are in talks to face each other.

After twice pulling out of rematches with Klitschko, Fury admitted problems with depression, excessive drinking and cocaine use before it was revealed he failed drugs test in February 2015.

After ending Klitshcko's near-decade-long reign of the heavyweight division, Fury received his boxing licence in January after accepting a backdated two-year doping ban.
