    So there you have it – August 18 at Windsor Park is the next time we’ll see Tyson Fury.

    That’s on the Carl Frampton bill and should be some night.

    Fury still has more than a stone to lose and by the looks of tonight, plenty of ring rust to shift.

    It’s been a great evening from Manchester, but time to sign off. If you fancy a late one with SunSport, stick around and tune into our coverage of UFC 225 from Chicago. That kicks off at 1am for you night owls.

    Thanks for joining us here and we’ll see you again for fight night soon. Head over to our boxing page for reaction to all of tonight’s bouts.

    Fury is speaking in the ring: “It felt fantastic. I want to say thank-you to the fans for coming out.

    “This opponent is a tough guy. He got on the back foot and moved around a bit, which was a bit awkward because he’s so small.

    It’s not my fault they pulled him out. He’s a good guy, God bless him.

    “It was like I was having my debut again. I’ve been a long time out, I needed to get my rounds in.

    “When I started to get going, they pulled him out. The calibre of opponents will start rising. I’m going to have a world title by the end of the year – that’s a promise.”

    Bold as ever. Frank Warren says August 18 will be his next fight.

    Well that was one huge anticlimax for the crowd, who are already filtering out.

    Fury applauds but there are a few boos. Seferi wasn’t game for any more, despite barely being caught in the four rounds.

    We haven’t seen much boxing there, with two rounds full of showboating and distractions of a scrap in the stalls.

    SEFERI HAS BEEN RETIRED!!

    Boos from the crowd. From nowhere, Fury is declared the winner before the fifth can resume.

    A Fury dominated round in the fourth and Fury has an almost maniacal grin as he marches forward, hands down.

    Those little feints, sharp hands, reflexes, they’re are all there. It feels like he’s sticking around for the rounds and toying with Seferi.
