Both Fury and promoter Frank Warren admitted that they were disappointed in Seferi's inability to answer the bell for the fifth round but neither are under any illusions about the plan to ease the former world heavyweight champion back into the fight game.

Speaking in the ring straight after the fight, Fury promised the boxing world that better is to come in 2018.

"I've had a long time out the ring and I needed some rounds, so I was taking my time".

As he targets a return to the big-time he briefly left after dethroning Wladimir Klitschko so memorably in November 2015, Fury will surely have no more nights quite so farcical as his triumph over Seferi. "You can see that he's still got a bit of weight to lose and you can see that he needs the rounds and we'll just have to step up his opponents each time".

Fans will now be expecting Team Fury to take on some tougher challenges in next fights, with the The Gypsy King due to be back out on the Carl Frampton undercard on August 18 in Belfast.

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

Albania's Switzerland-based Seferi was hopelessly outgunned in the fourth round, and it convinced him to quit.

"The opponent was small and light".

Seferi did a good job of surviving, and Fury struggled to lay a glove on him in the second round. Fury is likely to face a tougher opponent in his next fight set for September in a division now ruled by world title holders Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder.

Fury, who is 28 pounds heavier than when he fought Klitschko, will be encouraged by his performance, but victory should be kept in perspective.

Fury is most likely poking fun at his doping and cocaine issues in the last two years, which saw the former unified champion admit to drug use and accept a back-dated suspension.
