It would do him good to have few nights as facile at this one, with the majority of the aggression in the arena supplied instead by a small pocket of fans who sparked a brief brawl midway through the bout.

Britain's Tyson Fury returns to the ring on Saturday (Jun 8) hoping his boxing comeback can inspire other people who have been suffering from mental health problems.

Fury clowned his way to a win over Albanian cruiserweight Sefer Seferi at the start of his road back towards championship contention.

Boxing fans had waited 32 months to see the "Gypsy King" back in the ring but it ended in farcical fashion after opponent Sefer Seferi pulled out after just four rounds.

Fury outweighs Seferi by more than four stone, a point he jokingly emphasised at Friday's weigh-in by picking up his opponent and cradling him in his arms.

"He didn't come to fight, he came to run around the ring", Fury told a press conference. But I wouldn't change a thing.

"I wanted to see Tyson get some more rounds".

"I learnt two and a half years is a long time, a thousand days, and I'm just very happy to be back".

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.

According to the BBC, Frank Warren, promoter to both Fury and Frampton, confirmed that the heavyweight would appear on the Belfast card as he continues his comeback.

"I'll have more rounds and fight a better opponent", said Fury. "I am determined to enjoy my career this time around and not take anything for granted".

He hasn't fought since a shock defeat of Wladimir Klitschko in November 2015 saw Fury win the world title.

The difference in weight between the fury and the Sefer was nearly 30 kg, whereas the difference in height - 26 cm in such hands equal match could not be, but as it turned out, the Manchester Boxing was not at all.

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