Tyson Fury vs Sefer Seferi result: Gypsy King is BOOED by home crowd after securing stoppage victory as opponent pulls out in farcical fight

It went the way most people thought it would go as Fury blitzed his Macedonian opponent

TYSON FURY'S comedy comeback turned sour after his opponent quit on his stall and his new found 'fans' booed him out.

Fury made a mockery of his boxing ban for drugs use - and his supposed personal plight with cocaine - with a version of Afro Man novelty hit ‘Because I Got High’ incorporated into his entrance music.

And when he finally emerged it appeared he had failed to splash out on new kit for his comeback and squeezed into a pair of his old shorts, his 20st frame barely contained by the tight black trunks.

But the crowd fell for his shtick and were cheering him along until Sefer Seferi quit after four rounds and the decision to pick a push-over backfired.

Seferi looked interested in making it a contest early on, tucking in his chin and charging at the former champion and swinging the odd punch.

But his corner pulled him out and the crowd booed the embarrassing end and a fan hurled a pint of beer toward the ring, hitting some press members who were already sick of the circus.

Fury, as promised, looked to entertain and performed an Ali Shuffle at the midway point of the opener, after a kiss kicked off the fight.

The Traveller fired off a big right hang as the bell rung to bring the opening segment to a close and the pair touched gloves.

Sixty seconds later the pair touched gloves again and restarted the dance with the 6ft 9in giant playing the matador and even turning his back after another fruitless Seferi charge.

The Macedonia-born cruiserweight was game and but offered little threat, Fury even lost interest in his own fight and gazed into the crowd when a scuffle broke out at ringside.

The small red stall Fury sat on between rounds looked under more pressure than he was in the ring but the sweat on his brow at least meant he was working out.

And it looked like he had dropped the 39-year-old visitor with a body shot but the referee judged it to be a slip.

Seferi absorbed plenty of punishment, clearly growing up in the shadow and cross hairs of big brother Nuri, the only man ahead of him in the Albanian cruiserweight rankings, toughened him.

An uppercut from Fury sounded like it did a lot of damage but at the end of the round the Switzerland-based battler scuttled off to his corner feeling no effects.

But his corner pulled him out and the crowd booed the disgraceful end and fans hurled pints of beer toward the ring, pelting the press seats who were already sick of the circus.

After 924 days out and threats against heavyweight champions Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder, fans were expecting something special but it was more of a comedy act.

The Gypsy King will be back out on the Carl Frampton undercard on August 18 where it is unlikely he faces a serious test while still carrying such excess timber.

Promoter Frank Warren insisted at the start of his comeback trail that three or four fights would be need before his star attraction was fit for a title challenge but he is now one down and looks miles away.

Fury’s final words were: “I learnt that two-and-a-half years is a long time to be out and now I am back I want to enjoy every moment.

“I am straight back in the gym on Monday and look forward to the Frampton show in Belfast.”

Then Sefer Seferi pulled himself out at the end of the fourth round in what was a mismatch from the start.
