Fury: I’m right on track

Tyson Fury says he is “right where I thought I would be” ahead of making his comeback against Sefer Seferi on Saturday.

The former world heavyweight champion said it felt like a “homecoming” as he held a public workout in Manchester, joined by Ricky Hatton, on Tuesday.

Fury (25-0-KO18) has already said the comeback bout “is a world title fight for me”.

The 29-year-old has not fought since taking Wladimir Klitschko’s titles in 2015, a period which saw him lose his boxing license amid a doping investigation, but Fury insists he has a clear path ahead.

“I’m happy, very happy to be back,” said Fury on Sky Sports, dressed in special ‘short shorts’ in aid of raising awareness for testicular cancer.

“I’m here to please, put on a show for the fans. I can’t wait to fight.

“I’m right on course where I thought I’d be. I know who I am, where I’ve come from, where I’ve been, and I know what destination I’m heading towards.”

Tony Bellew has said he is willing to fight Fury before the end of the year, at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff.
