Tyson Fury beats Sefer Seferi in comeback fight

Tyson Fury

But first, Fury (26-0) confirmed he would be in action again in August.

The former IBF, WBA and WBO champion was absent from the ring due to a lengthy wrangle over an alleged doping offence, which Fury denied committing.

However, Fury began to knuckle down in rounds three and four, landing right hands seemingly at will, although Seferi appeared to be taking the blows well.

After much talk about how good he is going to be, including comparing himself to Muhammad Ali and Floyd Mayweather, Fury did not encounter much difficulty in forcing the outsized Seferi to quit before the fifth round at Manchester Arena. I got four rounds instead of ten seconds.

"I did a bit of dancing, threw a couple of punches and it was just about getting back to being under the lights again - it's been a long time", he added.

Fans will now be expecting Team Fury to take on some tougher challenges in next fights, with the The Gypsy King due to be back out on the Carl Frampton undercard on August 18 in Belfast.

Paul raccoon safely trapped on tower roof
Initial speculation was that the raccoon climbed to a lower part of the building, frequented by pigeons, in search of bird eggs. By Tuesday afternoon, the raccoon had its own Twitter account , with its first tweet saying, "I made a big mistake".

"I hoped for a bigger opponent but we couldn't really get anyone, there was no one available". We'll keep moving onwards and forwards.

Tyson Fury made his comeback last night after nearly three years out but the majority of the action came outside of the ring thanks to a massive brawl in the crowd at the Manchester Arena.

Seferi, who was almost five stones lighter and seven inches smaller, did show some ambition early on but Fury's height and movement ensured there was never going to be an upset at Manchester Arena.

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.

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 then piled on the pounds - he claimed to have lost eight stones in preparation for Seferi - and served a backdated drugs ban for testing positive for a banned steroid in February 2015.
