Following his victory, the British boxer described the return to the ring as "fantastic".

"I'll have more rounds and fight a better opponent", said Fury of his next fight. I was fit and ready, and very happy with the performance.

"He didn't come to fight, he came to run around the ring", Fury told a press conference. Seferi sat on his stool after four completed rounds and did not answer the bell for round five. I will go back home and have pizza and then get back on it tomorrow.

It was all too easy for the former world heavyweight champion against little-known Sefer Seferi at Manchester Arena.

"He took a couple of hard punches and didn't want to know". I won't take anything for granted and I'll enjoy every moment.

Back in action for the first time since defeating Wladimir Klitschko in November 2015, Fury showed occasional glimpses of his talent in an otherwise forgettable fight.

The eagerly-awaited comeback happened almost three years after the British boxer secured a triumph over Ukrainian Wladimir Klitschko in November 2015.

Fury was given a backdated two-year doping ban, and he declared his boxing career finished as he piled on the pounds.

A potential opponent in 2018 is Tony Bellew, with Frank Warren - Fury's promoter - stating in the ring after the fight that they would welcome a bout with the Bomber before the end of the year.

But Fury's reign was brief with rematches twice cancelled against Klitschko before he admitted to problems with depression, drink and drugs. Fury is likely to face a tougher opponent in his next fight set for September in a division now ruled by world title holders Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder.

"We picked him because he had gone the distance with Manuel Charr, who is the WBA regular champion, that is the reason we picked him".

Another viewer wrote: "I've been watching boxing for about forty years and I'm struggling to think of a bigger mismatch in a supposed main event".

"I think Anthony Joshua is fighting Alexander Povetkin in September so he will not fight until next year now and I think Wilder has got a mandatory".
