He is not wrong. Tyson Fury is something we have never seen before in the boxing ring. At 6’9” he is fleet footed, switches stance and dances around the ring with his hand by his sides while faced with fighters that could end a contest with a single punch. Tyson Fury is an enigma, the most polarising character in the game right now.
His long awaited return has been greeted by daily messages to the fellow Heavyweights he sees himself extinguishing as he reclaims the belts he once held when dethroning the great Wladimir Klitschko.
But the Albanian ‘Real Deal’, Sefer Seferi 23-1(21KO’s) is unlikely to tell us a lot about the prospects of Fury once again ruling the boxing world.
The former Cruiserweight was beaten on points by fringe Heavyweight Manuel Charr in 2016 and has not mixed with world championship contenders in neither the Cruiser nor Heavyweight divisions.
But all focus will be on the performance that Fury 25-0(18KO’s) puts on and whether or not he looks ready to back his loud boasts.
It will be electric come main event time in the Manchester Arena, and the ‘Gypsy King’ can provide a fitting end to a long night as he toys with and then crushes Seferi with a sharp, textbook combination in round 5.
