The former world champion in the heavyweight Briton Tyson fury (26-0, 19 KO's) defeated the Albanian Sefer Sefer. Seferi, 39, quit on his stool after four rounds, with Fury showboating his way through the first two rounds before landing heavy shots in the fourth.
It was an unusual conclusion to an unusual fight but Fury is back on the heavyweight scene and apparently ready for more testing opposition in the coming months. Fury was into stride and Seferi was pulled out of the fight before the fifth. No opponent has been named for Fury or for Frampton. Frampton (25-1, 14 KOs) now holds the interim WBO world featherweight title after outclassing Nonito Donaire at Belfast's SSE Arena in April and will return at one his city's major stadiums.
Frampton knew before the fight that a win could pave the way to a summer outing at Windsor Park, a famed outdoor soccer stadium that opened in 1905.
"I'm going to have a world title by the end of the year - that's a promise".
"I wanted to stand and have a fight with him, but it (the retirement) happened, and it wasn't my fault that they pulled him out".
"I've loads left. My last performance was the second best of my career after the first Leo Santa Cruz fight".
It appears a fight between Tyson Fury and Tony Bellew could be in the works after both boxers opened the door to the all-English clash. I feel like I'm enjoying it more, and while I'm still performing, I'll do it as long as I can.
