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.

Tyson Fury won his heavyweight comeback after opponent Sefer Seferi was retired by his corner after four rounds.

The fight in the stands was perhaps more entertaining than Fury's win.

"I opted for a bigger opponent but we couldn't really get anybody, there was nobody available".

After his first fight since upsetting Wladimir Klitschko on points for three world heavyweight titles in November 2015, Fury said in the ring: "I felt fantastic, it was like having my debut again".

I will go back home and have pizza and then get back on it tomorrow.

"We took Seferi, who had a good record and a tough chin and he took me a few rounds".

His promoter Frank Warren is evidently intent on keeping Fury busy as he begins his long road back towards the top, and he is next scheduled to fight at Windsor Park in Belfast on August 18.

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.

It was not always pretty from Fury, but it allowed the 6ft 9in Englishman to shed some of the ring rust before moving on to harder tests.

Germany's Manuel Charr, who holds the secondary WBA title, is one potential opponent for Fury in the next six months.

Fury played to the crowd in the first round and looked a bit embarrassed when Seferi tried to rough up the former champion.

Fury, who is 28 pounds heavier than when he fought Klitschko, will be encouraged by his performance, but victory should be kept in perspective.

Fury believes he will soon be ready to take on the likes of heavyweight champions Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder.

Fury has remained news while inactive due to a personal crisis that involved problems with mental health, excessive drinking, admitting cocaine use and serving a doping ban.
