Fury fails to impress as farcical return says little about his condition

Fury fails to impress as farcical return says little about his condition

The victory extends Fury's unbeaten record to 26-0, though he will have to undergo far sterner tests than Seferi before he considers taking on any of the leading names in the division.

Both Fury and promoter Frank Warren admitted that they were disappointed in Seferi's inability to answer the bell for the fifth round but neither are under any illusions about the plan to ease the former world heavyweight champion back into the fight game. It's been a long time out of the ring and I needed to get some rounds in.

Sporadic thick right hands from Fury had Seferi on the back-foot in the fourth, and his corner evidently chose to spare him further drawn-out punishment when they summoned Edwards and withdrew their man at the end of the round. I got four rounds instead of ten seconds.

"I'll have more rounds and fight a better opponent", said Fury of his next fight.

Moon earlier in the day said he expected the DPRK-U.S. summit will become a "historic milestone on the path towards peace". But he has since lowered expectations, backing away from an original demand for North Korea's swift denuclearisation.

Fighting for the first time since he wrested the world heavyweight title from Wladimir Klitschko over two-and-a-half years ago, Fury gurned and showboated his way through much of the contest and earned a ticking-off from referee Phil Edwards.

Tyson Fury's next fight will be on the undercard of Carl Frampton's headline show at Windsor Park on 18 August.

"I'm sure Frank's going to keep me busy and the calibre of opponents will keep rising". But I wouldn't change a thing.

But Fury was disappointed by the attitude of 39-year-old Seferi, who was giving away more than 50lb and almost a foot of height difference on the night.

China wasn’t at the table but Trump-Kim talks reinforced its role
I don't understand why people suddenly feel positive toward Kim following his media exposure via the two Koreas' summit. However, no specific plan or timeline was set forth for the denuclearization.

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. He needs to get the ring rust off.

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

Fury was eventually given a backdated two-year ban for testing positive for the banned steroid nandrolone and in exile he piled on the pounds while the WBA, WBO and IBF titles slipped into the hands of others.

Trump says Canadian leader Justin Trudeau 'learned' from trade comments
In contrast, Trump was mostly smiles with North Korea's Kim Jong Un on Monday, and said talks between them were "top-of-the-line". The president said he was annoyed by Trudeau's comments about not letting Canada get pushed around.
