Fury wins farcical comeback fight

MANCHESTER, England (AP) Tyson Fury clowned his way through his first fight in more than 2 1/2 years and still outclassed Sefer Seferi who retired after four farcical rounds in Manchester Arena on Saturday.

Fighting for the first time since claiming the world heavyweight title from Wladimir Klitschko in November 2015, Fury sporadically unloaded right hands as he showboated through the scheduled 10-round bout and received a warning from referee Phil Edwards.

The much heavier and taller Fury showed he could end the fight whenever he wished but the decision was taken out of his hands by Seferi's corner.

Seferi (23-2), a career cruiserweight, tried in vain to reach Fury's head with sluggish right uppercuts. His corner decided to spare the Albanian from further drawn-out punishment by withdrawing him at the end of the fourth round.

Fury (26-0, 19 KO) is next scheduled to fight on Aug. 18 in Belfast against an opponent yet to be named.

Promoter Frank Warren said they are still trying to work weight off Fury, and ring rust.

After ending Klitshcko's near-decade-long reign of the heavyweight division, Fury virtually disappeared from boxing by getting caught up in drink, drugs and depression. He received his boxing licence in January after accepting a backdated two-year doping ban.
