The Englishman ended a two-year seven-month exile with an untroubled win over Albania's Switzerland-based Seferi in a non-title bout at the Manchester Arena.

The start was, however, no less comic, as Fury gave his opponent a tender smooch before the opening bell to Gypsy King's first fight after a lengthy spell of inactivity.

"On 18 August at Windsor Park in Belfast", Warren responded when asked when we could expect to see Fury back in the ring.

An nearly comical fight saw Fury with a six-inch height advantage over the Albanian - and his laughing, play-acting and tongue-pulling suggested he was not having to exert himself too much in his first fight for two and a half years.

"I hoped for a bigger opponent but we couldn't really get anyone, there was no one available".

"I'll be better next time".

Following his victory, the British boxer described the return to the ring as "fantastic".

But he said sanctions would remain in place for now and argued "we haven't given up anything". There is a " huge difference between the two ", the anonymous official said.

Seferi was seven inches shorter and almost five stones lighter than Fury, who used his reach and height to ensure there was never any danger of an upset.

After a dominant but at times farcical performance from Fury, who played to the crowd and even incurred the wrath of the referee with his incessant showboating, Seferi retired on his stool after four rounds of the fight, awarding his opponent a 26th career win.

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.

Seferi did a good job of surviving and Fury struggled to lay a glove on him in the second. Fury was into stride and Seferi was pulled out of the fight before the fifth.

Fury believes he will soon be ready to take on the likes of heavyweight champions Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder.

After the fight, Fury was just glad to be back in the ring. After beating Wladimir Klitschko for the WBA, WBO and IBF world heavyweight titles, Fury's life spun out of control and he had not fought since. Fury then piled on the pounds - he claimed to have lost eight stones in preparation for Seferi - and served a backdated drugs ban for testing positive for a banned steroid in February 2015.
