Tyson Fury: Heavyweight to fight on Carl Frampton undercard in August

It was all too easy for the former world heavyweight champion against little-known Sefer Seferi at Manchester Arena.

The 29-year-old former world champion was back in the ring for the first time since beating Wladimir Klitschko in November 2015. "As you could see I wasn't in a rush, I was having a bit of fun. the calibre of opponents will keep rising".

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.

That's because Fury's ring walk was definitely worth the wait.

Fury has plans to regain his three world titles, now in the possession of English rival Anthony Joshua, and his one potential future opponent could be Germany's Manuel Charr who was ringside.

Fury's skills are still intact, although they lacked the zip and zing of his win over Klitschko.

But Fury rediscovered his passion for boxing and claimed to have lost eight stones (112 pounds) ahead of facing Seferi.

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

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

"If I'm brutally honest I could have knocked him out in ten seconds".

"We took Seferi, he had a good record and a tough chin".

Seferi showed some ambition in the third round, but Fury picked him off with his long arms, landing heavy punches in the fourth.

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.

With a height advantage of 10 inches and weighing almost five stone heavier than the Albanian, Fury's camp are hopeful that they will find a taller and heavier opponent for his Belfast bout.

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

An nearly comical fight saw Fury with a six-inch height advantage over the Albanian - and his laughing, play-acting and tongue-pulling suggested he was not having to exert himself too much in his first fight for two and a half years.
