Fury outweighs Seferi by more than four stone, a point he jokingly emphasised at Friday's weigh-in by picking up his opponent and cradling him in his arms.

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

Joshua and Wilder are in talks to face each other in early 2019, while Warren plans on keeping Fury active until a world title shot happens, with his next bout scheduled to be at Belfast´s Windsor Park, Northern Ireland on August 18.

"I wanted to get some rounds in", said Fury.

Germany's Manuel Charr, who holds the secondary WBA title, is one potential opponent for Fury in the next six months.

So easy that Fury could afford to joke about it early on and glance out at a scuffle taking place in the crowd.

The 6-foot-9 Englishman claimed to have lost 112 pounds for his comeback, and although he still has more to lose after weighing in at 276 pounds, he showed his boxing skills have not been eroded by the layoff.

Fury has been linked with a clash against former WBC cruiserweight champion Tony Bellew, who is roughly the same size as Seferi.

"If I'm brutally honest I could have knocked him out in ten seconds".

With a height advantage of 10 inches and weighing almost five stone heavier than the Albanian, Fury's camp are hopeful that they will find a taller and heavier opponent for his Belfast bout.

The difference in weight between the fury and the Sefer was nearly 30 kg, whereas the difference in height - 26 cm in such hands equal match could not be, but as it turned out, the Manchester Boxing was not at all.

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

"I'll have a world title by the end of the year, that's a promise", the 29-year-old said.

After twice pulling out of rematches with Klitschko, Fury then admitted problems with mental health, drinking too much and cocaine use before it was revealed he failed a drugs test for the banned steroid nandrolone in February 2015.
