Fury wins in 'farcical' comeback

Share

Tyson Fury will now move on to bigger and better things with a fight at Windsor Park in August on the Carl Frampton under card his next stop but organisers will be hoping they don't get a repeat of these appalling scenes.

Warren could not reveal if he had found an opponent for Fury for the August date, but his fighter did request someone taller than Seferi.

Fury made short work of Seferi as the pair of them exchanged a kiss, amusing looks but very few punches before the Albanian quit on his stool at the end of the 4th round.

Former world heavyweight champion Fury was fighting for the first time since he upset Wladimir Klitschko in November 2015.

On the way forward, Pompeo said, "I don't know exactly what the timing will be for our next conversation with the North Koreans". Should Trump agree to ease sanctions, Beijing is likely to be very willing to help North Korea rebuild its economy.

The contest at times resembled a pantomine with Fury gurning and throwing his arms into the air through much of the opening round.

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.

Seferi is 39, has not boxed at an elite level, was 7 inches smaller and almost 70 pounds lighter than Fury.

Fury's titles are now in the hands of English rival Anthony Joshua, but promoter Frank Warren said fights against Joshua and Deontay Wilder, the World Boxing Council (WBC) champion from American, are a way off yet.

Comcast launches $65bn bid to steal Murdoch's Fox away from Disney
Fox shareholders will vote July 10 on the Disney transaction but the company could postpone the meeting, Fox said in a statement. Regulators there also have cleared Comcast's $30.7-billion U.S. offer for the 61 per cent of Sky that Murdoch doesn't own.

If he looked a little more serious from the second round onwards, it still felt like something of a non-event as the limited Seferi tried in vain to even reach Fury's head with his sluggish right uppercuts. He needs to get the ring rust off.

The Albanian Seferi was immediately put off and was pulled out of the fight before the start of the fifth round.

Germany's Manuel Charr, who holds the secondary WBA title, is one potential opponent for Fury in the next six months.

After the fight, Fury was just glad to be back in the ring.

North Korea says Trump agreed on step-by-step denuclearization process
On Monday, Mattis told Pentagon reporters that there had been no discussions on future withdrawals of USA troops from Korea. As for whether clients are approaching him on doing deals in North Korea, "the answer is no", Paulsen said.

Fury was given a backdated two-year doping ban, and he declared his boxing career finished as he piled on the pounds. He looked in reasonable shape on his comeback, although still has some weight to lose before his next outing.
