Eddie Hearn reveals plan for Tyson Fury to get shot at Anthony Joshua

  Eddie Hearn reveals plan for Tyson Fury to get shot at Anthony Joshua Matchroom Sport boss Eddie Hearn has revealed the fight path he offered to Tyson Fury, which would have seen the “Gypsy King” face off against Anthony Joshua. Fury instead made his comeback to the ring against Sefer Seferi of Albania, and a thoroughly underwhelming and bizarre contest ended with the challenger quitting on his stool after the fourth round. After a lay-off of just under three years, no one was expecting Fury to come back to professional boxing and start challenging for world titles again. Despite this, some have criticised the former undisputed world champion for picking a significantly weaker opponent. Among those naysayers are Hearn, who claimed he offered Fury a ‘four fight plan’ to get back to the top of the table in the heavyweight division. Speaking to iFL TV, Hearn said: “I said you could fight Kauffman, then you could fight Tony Bellew, Dillian Whyte and Anthony Joshua. That is my four-fight plan. That is probably about £30m there as well.” “You can’t call yourself the lineal heavyweight champion of the world and say ‘I will go back in with Joshua or Wilder in my first fight’ and then fight Sefer Seferi,” Hearn went on to say that Fury will seek further fights at the level of Seferi. “But don’t expect anyone better for the next few. This is the problem. What you said, there is an element of truth to that, he did deserve an easy one. This geezer [Seferi] is not even a boxer really.” “He’s number two Albanian cruiserweight, number one was his brother.

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.
