And Gazza will be able to say 'I was there' as Fury plots his way back to world titles.

The 51-year-old entered backstage, and was promptly mobbed for photos.

One boxer who was keen to get that precious selfie was Fury's close friend and current WBO middleweight champ Billy Joe Saunders.

And of course Gazza, well known for his cheery attitude, kindly obliged as Saunders showed off his pearly whites for the snap.

Fury, as expected, is the huge favourite to win later tonight, as short as 1-500 with some bookies.

And the man himself is predicting a fifth-round stoppage of the relative unknown Seferi.

Then the controversial heavyweight boxer is targeting a world title once again wrapped around his waist by the end of 2018.

Speaking to Fighting Pride, the 'Gypsy King' said: “I don’t know what to expect from Seferi, he’s got me on edge really.

"I don’t know how good he is, I don’t know if he’s terrible - I don’t know if he’s excellent.

“He could be the second coming of Evander Holyfield who knows, but I know what I can do and I’m not really too bothered what he can do.

“As long as I do what I do I’ll get him out of there round five."

Fury has claimed he could have as many as FIVE fights this year, with the eventual mouthwatering prospect of a British blockbuster banger against Anthony Joshua down the line.

He added: “I’d like to be a world heavyweight champion again by the end of 2018. Active and busy and still undefeated."
