Bellew says he is prepared to let Fury off this ‘gimme’ of a fight, but doesn’t want him to continue fighting boxers ‘nobody knows’. Tyson Fury weighed in at a career high of 276 pounds on Friday for his scheduled 10 round comeback fight against the much smaller.
Tyson Fury and Sefer Seferi talk about their upcoming fight on Saturday June 9th 2018. Tyson Fury’s comeback fight starts early for interested fans in the United States and doesn’t interfere with the rest of Saturday’s busy combat sports schedule.
The Furious One has lost the weight and found a mental fortitude that had been missing since the Wladimir Klitschko win in 2015.
As well as Fury’s return, Frank Warren has put on an intriguing undercard, topped with Terry Flanagan’s bid to become a two-weight world champion.
Turbo is looking to take out Maurice Hooker and become the WBO super lighterweight champion.
Here are the fights to look out for in the build-up to Fury’s big comeback. Tyson Fury is back and he’ll see his first in-ring action in 2.5 years on Saturday at the Manchester Arena when he takes on Sefer Seferi.
Showtime YouTube and Facebook have struck again by securing the rights to stream the fight. Over the past few months, the cable network has locked down fights like Amir Khan vs. Phil Lo Greco, Lee Selby vs. Josh Warrington and Carl Frampton vs. Nonito Donaire.
None of those fights would have been viewable in the United States otherwise. This bout is considered by most to be a tuneup fight for Fury before he throws his hat into the ring for fights against the likes of Deontay Wilder, Anthony Joshua and all of the biggest names in the heavyweight division.
That said, Seferi is no slouch. His 23-1 record makes him appear to be a fair challenge for Fury. Before Fury and Seferi climb into the ring, Terry Flanagan and Maurice Hooker will battle for the vacant WBO junior welterweight title.
