Tyson Fury has returned to boxing amid ridiculous scenes, both in the ring and in the stands.

The 29-year-old Englishman has never been far from attention while away from the ring due to the trials and tribulations that left him experiencing "the lowest of the lows to the point of not wanting to live".

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.

"I'm not here to dwell on the past, I'm here to move forward", Fury insisted.

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.

This always was going to be an exercise to reintroduce Fury safely back into boxing after the trials and tribulations he has gone through in his two-year, seven-month exile.

Former heavyweight champion Fury had not fought since dethroning Ukrainian Wladimir Klitschko in 2015 and suffered various drug, alcohol and mental health issues since then.

The former WBA-IBF-WBO world heavyweight champion enjoyed his moment but did not get into his stride until the fourth round, and that was enough for Seferi to surrender on his stool.

Seferi is 39, has not boxed at an elite level, was 7 inches smaller and almost 70 pounds lighter than Fury. I will be better next time.

"I did a bit of dancing, threw a couple of punches and it was just about getting back to being under the lights again - it's been a long time", he added.

Fury was given a backdated two-year doping ban, and he declared his boxing career finished as he piled on the pounds.

Promoter Frank Warren plans on Fury fighting again at Windsor Park in Belfast on August 18, on the undercard of WBO interim featherweight champion Carl Frampton's next fight.

But Fury was adamant he was focused on the task of beating Seferi, whose 23 professional career wins have all come at cruiserweight, with his lone loss to heavyweight contender Manuel Charr in September 2016.
