Tyson Fury beat Sefer Seferi in heavyweight boxing return

Britain´s Tyson Fury (R) exchanges blows with Albania´s Sefer Seferi during their heavyweight contest at the Manchester Arena in Manchester, northern England on June 9, 2018.

So easy that Fury could afford to joke about it early on and glance out at a scuffle taking place in the crowd.

Farce and Fury assailed Manchester in equal measure on Saturday night, as the former world heavyweight champion gurned around the ring for 12 minutes of his boxing comeback before his hopelessly inadequate opponent quit on his stool.

Fury's first decent bit of work came at the end of the first round, when he landed a quick combination, but in the second referee Phil Edwards told him off for his conduct.

The Albanian Seferi was immediately put off and was pulled out of the fight before the start of the fifth round.

"The opponent was small and light". I won't take anything for granted and I'll enjoy every moment. We'll keep moving onwards and forwards. I will go back home and have pizza and then get back on it.

"I could have knocked him out in the first round but what good would that have done me?"

He says candidates realized this time around they needed to look outside of the major cities to secure those votes. Shortly after the president's Tuesday tweet, senior conservative GOP members rallied around Sanford.

"I wanted to see Tyson get some more rounds".

"He took a couple of hard punches and didn't want to know".

"I learnt two and a half years is a long time, a thousand days, and I'm just very happy to be back".

The eagerly-awaited comeback happened almost three years after the British boxer secured a triumph over Ukrainian Wladimir Klitschko in November 2015.

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.

Fury was given a backdated two-year doping ban, and he declared his boxing career finished as he piled on the pounds.

Afterwards Fury, whom his promoter Frank Warren said will fight again in Belfast on August 18, was his usual whirl of contradictions insisting Warren serve up a 7ft 2in opponent for his next bout - or alternatively, a man with one leg - and pouring scorn on the rest of his heavyweight rivals.
