KXIP vs KKR Live Score

"The opponent was quite short and he was light which meant he was quick", Fury said afterwards.

By the fourth it became apparent Fury, who sporadically unloaded right hands, could end the fight when ever he wished - but the decision was taken out of his hands by Seferi's corner when they withdrew their man at the end of the round.

Fury, meanwhile, insisted that he plans to win back at least one of the titles he unified in Dusseldorf two-and-a-half-years ago by the end of 2018.

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

The former IBF, WBA and WBO champion planted a kiss on his much-smaller rival prior to the opening bell, though the pair barely laid a glove on each other once the first of 10 scheduled rounds got underway. It's been a long time out of the ring and I needed to get some rounds in.

Fury's next fight will reportedly be on the undercard of Carl Frampton's headline show at Windsor Park on 18 August.

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

But Fury was disappointed by the attitude of 39-year-old Seferi, who was giving away more than 50lb and almost a foot of height difference on the night.

Former heavyweight champion Fury had not fought since dethroning Ukrainian Wladimir Klitschko in 2015 and suffered various drug, alcohol and mental health issues since then.

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.

"I will take my career very seriously this time, and not take anything for granted, and enjoy every moment". He needs to get the ring rust off.

Fury was eventually given a backdated two-year ban and in his exile he piled on the pounds. We picked Seferi because he had gone ten rounds with Manuel Charr. "In the meantime we have to get Tyson more competitive fights".
