Tyson Fury Hopes To Get a Much Better Opponent on Aug. 18

Former unified heavyweight world champion Tyson Fury (26-0, 20 KOs) is hoping to get a much stiffer challenge when he return on August 18th at Windsor Park in Belfast - as part of the undercard to Carl Frampton's clash with Luke Jackson.

Fury stepped back in the ring two weeks ago in Manchester, when he stopped Sefer Seferi in a complete mismatch. The fight was waved off when Seferi refused to come out for the fifth round.

It was Fury's first bout in the ring since November of 2015, when he traveled to Germany and pulled of a huge upset with a twelve round unanimous decision over Wladimir Klitshcko to capture the WBA, WBO, IBO, IBF belts.

Fury, 29, has won each of his three previous fights in Belfast. The most recent came against Kevin Johnson in December 2012, and he said: “Last time I boxed here was six years ago, and it’s always been very welcoming. It’s going to be even more welcoming as a returning world champion.

“I hope this time I’m going to get someone who’s going to have a fight with me, punch me in the face a couple of times, give me a busted nose and a busted mouth.”

He was unconvincing when he returned against the little-known Sefer Seferi in Manchester earlier this month, and Warren added: “He’s still got weight to come off. He was training to come back, now he’s going to train to fight. That’s the difference.

“If Carl comes through, one way or the other, that fight (against Warrington) – if they’re both winning fighters – will happen next year. If he wins, he’ll fight Warrington next. I’m meeting Josh tomorrow.”

Also on the undercard, Ireland’s Paddy Barnes will challenge for a world title for the first time. In only his sixth professional fight, he faces WBC flyweight champion Cristofer Rosales, from Nicaragua.

Could it get worse?? May as well prop him up against whomever. Let him get some wins over some club fighters then cash out in a few fights against a name opponent before he loses to a nobody. Because he…
