Britain´s Tyson Fury (R) connects with a left against Albania´s Sefer Seferi during their heavyweight contest at the Manchester Arena in Manchester, northern England on June 9, 2018.

The former world champion returned to the ring on Saturday following a 32-month absence and defeated Albanian Sefer Seferi after four rounds.

Seferi's unsatisfactory withdrawal sent the boos - and the occasional drinks bottle - cascading down from the upper tiers, but for Fury at least, it is simply a case of reigniting a career that still promises much.

"The calibre of opponents will keep on rising".

"I felt fantastic, it was like having my debut again", Fury said in the ring.

Seferi, who was almost five stones lighter and seven inches smaller, did show some ambition early on but Fury's height and movement ensured there was never going to be an upset at Manchester Arena.

"We took Seferi, who had a good record and a tough chin and he took me a few rounds".

Trump's attacks arrive as the United States and Canada renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement alongside Mexico. Still, Canada accounts for less than 3 percent of global trade, according to Agri-Food Economic Systems.

Fighting for the first time since claiming the world heavyweight title from Wladimir Klitschko in November 2015, Fury sporadically unloaded right hands as he showboated through the scheduled 10-round bout and received a warning from referee Phil Edwards.

It was not always pretty from Fury, but it allowed the 6ft 9in Englishman to shed some of the ring rust before moving on to harder tests.

According to the BBC, Frank Warren, promoter to both Fury and Frampton, confirmed that the heavyweight would appear on the Belfast card as he continues his comeback.

Fury in particular was clearly distracted by the fight between a group of thugs and the events have of course taken social media by storm.

Charr holds the WBA "regular" belt, a secondary world title, and beat Seferi on points in September 2016.

Just boxing again was an achievement for Fury, whose life span out of control after ending Klitschko's nine-and-half year reign.

Fury was given a backdated two-year doping ban, and he declared his boxing career finished as he piled on the pounds. He looked in reasonable shape on his comeback, although still has some weight to lose before his next outing.
