BREAKING NEWS!! Fury Comeback Opponent Announced.

'The Gypsy King' Returns on June 9th Against .....

By Aaron Cooper   - @intuboxingfm

The long wait is over. The man who beat the man returns on June 9th at Manchester Arena, this much we already know.....

However, IntuBoxing has learned that Tyson Fury will fight Sefer Seferi in his first fight for two and a half years. This may not come as a shock to most as Seferi's name has been banded around various news outlets, including Intuboxing for a few weeks now. The last time we saw Fury in a boxing ring was on an autumn night in Germany when he did what many people thought was impossible. Fury put on a performance of a lifetime and outpointed Wladimir Klitschko, picking up the WBO, IBF, WBA, IBO and most importantly the lineal heavyweight championship of the world. 

Fury's problems after that fight are well documented and I see no reason to flog a dead horse. What we should ALL be doing is commending Tyson for overcoming the odds, and the adversity that is mental health and returning to the ring. After splitting with his long-time trainer, Peter Fury and beginning a new partnership with Ben Davidson. He has overseen a dramatic transformation that has seen Fury shed over a hundred pounds, put simply Fury looks in the best shape the boxing world has ever seen him.

Now please remember fight fans, this is Tyson Fury's first competitive bout in over two years. It would be foolhardy to think he would be ready to take on one of the worlds best immediately. This fight has a purpose. Firstly to allow Fury to shed undoubted ring rust, but more importantly to serve as a confidence booster. In short, Seferi is there to make Fury look good, not that he needs to much help with that. Seferi is a 39-year old Macedonian that now lives in Switzerland and for all intents and purposes in a blown up cruiserweight. At the 200- pound limit he is heavy handed. Stopping 21 of his 24 opponents. At six-feet-two Fury will hold many physical advantages. Seferi did make on an attempt in boxing's premier division once before, but he was outpointed by the current WBA 'Regular' heavyweight champion, Manuel Charr. 

Say what you will. But the heavyweight division, and boxing in general needs Tyson Fury. And I for one am glad he is back.
