And it seemed to have worked as it was the Gypsy King who emerged victorious in his first fight since dethroning Wladimir Klitschko in November 2015.

Seferi quit on his stool before the start of the fifth round as Fury gets his first win on his quest to regain his old belts.

But fans were less than impressed with the main event, with many believing the contest descended into a farce.

At one stage, the former unified world champion and his opponent both stopped midway through the second round to watch a fight in the crowd.
