Tyson Fury called out by Tony Bellew with Bomber insisting he is 'quicker, hits harder and faster on feet'

Fury made his big boxing comeback on Saturday night in Manchester – but it proved to be a damp squib as opponent Sefer Seferi pulled himself out after four rounds.

It was a complete mismatch from the start, with more fighting going on in the crowd when a brawl erupted than in the ring.

As the result was announced boos rang out from the Manchester crowd – most for Seferi for chucking in the towel, but boxing purists will have wished they hadn't have bothered by tickets.

Fury insists he will win a world title by the end of 2018, but clearly he needs to be tested much more than by a 39-year-old Macedonian journeyman.

Bellew tweeted that he would "knock the big man out" after watching his comeback, with promoter Frank Warren claiming it is a fight he would like to make.


And this morning speaking on talkSPORT, Bellew once again re-iterated his belief that he would beat the Gypsy King.

He said: “I just don’t believe he could beat me.


FURY-IOUS Fury's big comeback fight branded 'a disgrace to boxing'


“The only thing he has over me is size and reach, and I can combat those things.

“I’m quicker than him, I hit harder than him, I’ve got faster feet than him.

“Let’s not forget, for a heavyweight, Tyson Fury is very fast. He’s got good feet for a heavyweight.

“But I’m not a heavyweight, I’ m a cruiserweight. I’m much faster, I pose a lot more of a threat.

“I hit much harder than Steve Cunningham and he put a prime and in shape Tyson Fury flat on his back.”

Fury is scheduled to be out next on the undercard of Carl Frampton's Belfast homecoming on August 18 at Windsor Park.

This will be too soon for Bellew however, who is taking some time out after sending David Haye into almost-certain retirement with his second victory over him.
