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

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.

"Bomber" took to Twitter after Fury's comeback fight to promise that he would be able to knock out the undefeated heavyweight.

Sporadic thick right hands from Fury had Seferi on the back-foot in the fourth, and his corner evidently chose to spare him further drawn-out punishment when they summoned Edwards and withdrew their man at the end of the round.

The victory was Fury's first fight since his stunning win over Wladimir Klitschko in November 2015, and marked a successful return to boxing.

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.

It was not always pretty from Fury, but it allowed the 6ft 9in Englishman to shed some of the ring rust before moving on to harder tests.

Let's hope Tyson Fury will be given a significant step-up in competition for his next outing.

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.

Fury was eventually given a backdated two-year ban and in his exile he piled on the pounds.
