Tyson Fury returned to the boxing ring on Saturday night with a fourth-round victory but isn’t ready to challenge for a title just yet, with promoter Frank Warren admitting he will wait until next summer.
The ‘Gypsy King’ scored an easy TKO victory against Albanian fighter Sefer Seferi in Manchester in a very one-sided encounter.
Fury has posted several videos on social media recently, claiming that he has “nightmares” and “can’t sleep at night” knowing that Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder are the current champions of the division.
He has returned to the sport with a clear intention to retrieve the belts that were stripped from him. Fury has battled several problems in recent years, especially depression and drug abuse.
But, he is determined to become the world champion once again, with Warren revealing that he could be having a title fight next summer.
As quoted on the Boxing Scene, Warren said:
Taking off all those stones in less than three months is physically draining and he also had to start shaking off the ring rust after such a long lay-off.
The clamour for Fury to set about regaining the several belts he gave over to Anthony Joshua will be resisted until next summer. Tyson needs more time and more fights.
Warren is now looking for a tough opponent to face Fury in August whilst Joshua and Wilder continue to negotiate a potential fight which will crown one of them as the undisputed and unified heavyweight champion of the world.
