Tyson Fury emerged victorious in his showcase return to the ring after 31 months out and Frank Warren has revealed plans for his next fight already.
The promoter gleefully divulged Fury’s immediate options after a four-round victory over Sefer Seferi.
The Albanian retired after four rounds with Fury able to coast to victory and toy with his overmatched opponent.
Fury said the right things after the fight, insisting he wants to remain active and Warren was happy to confirm a fight date and insists Tony Bellew is a real option.
"[He will next fight] on the 18th August at Windsor Park," Warren told BT Sport after Fury’s victory.
"He needs the rounds, we’ll have to step up with opponents each time. He needs to get the rust out of his system.
"He needs the rounds. The objective is to get him into contention for a world title as soon as possible.
"I think Anthony Joshua is fighting Povetkin, that’s no secret, so he won’t be available until next year. Deontay Wilder has a manadatory coming up, so he won’t be available until next year.
"Tony Bellew, we’d go for that before the end of the year, no problem."
