Tyson Fury’s return to the ring amounted to a pretty much as-expected glorified exhibition today in Manchester, as he went four rounds before Sefer Seferi quit the fight, keeping the former heavyweight champion unbeaten as he embarks on a new stage in his career.

Fury (26-0, 19 KO) didn’t do much and didn’t have to against the overmatched Seferi (23-2, 21 KO), a cruiserweight who was hand-picked as a comeback opponent with no danger attached.

Fury showed a glimpse of his old self here and there, with his fast hands on display in spots, but spent the first couple of rounds playing to the crowd, almost mocking the occasion, as the undersized Seferi couldn’t do anything to get close enough to have a shot to land a solid punch.

Tyson Fury returns to the ring this weekend when he faces largely unknown cruiserweight-turned-heavyweight Sefer Seferi in Manchester. Crawford really does seem the real deal however - expect that he gets his welterweight career off to a good start with victory over Horn, stopping him late on.

As far as Seferi goes, it has to be said that he quit without Fury doing a lick of real damage. It was a mediocre sparring session, basically, and Seferi quit after four without Fury doing much of anything other than making it clear that Seferi couldn’t do anything to him. On the other hand, and to play devil’s advocate, what did Seferi have to gain by staying in there?

So we really learned nothing today, as the fight was mostly just about getting Fury back into a a fight, getting him in the ring for the first time since November 2015. He did that, and now hopefully we see him at least take on someone with a pulse who will genuinely try next time out, maybe even an actual heavyweight.
