Former world heavyweight champion Tyson “Gypsy King” Fury (26-0, 16 KOs) returned with a one-sided four round TKO over Sefer “The Real Deal” Seferi (23-2, 21 KOs) on Saturday night at the Manchester Arena in Manchester, United Kingdom.

The 6’9 Fury, who has been sidelined with mental health issues for the past 2½ years, towered over the 39-year-old Seferi who mostly campaigns at cruiserweight. The tone of the fight was set when Fury kissed Seferi on the lips during the pre-fight face-off. The fighters smiled and touched gloves several times. At one point Fury was warned by the ref to stop talking to the crowd. The non-competitive affair ended when Seferi quit after round four.

It was Fury’s first fight since dethroning Wladimir Klitschko in November 2015. He is likely to face a tougher opponent in his next fight set for September.
