Such was the quality of the fight, a scuffle between a section of fans in the stands provided arguably more entertainment than that seen inside the ring.
Tyson Fury has returned to boxing amid ridiculous scenes, both in the ring and in the stands.
Tyson Fury made his comeback last night after nearly three years out but the majority of the action came outside of the ring thanks to a massive brawl in the crowd at the Manchester Arena.
Seferi's unsatisfactory withdrawal sent the boos - and the occasional drinks bottle - cascading down from the upper tiers, but for Fury at least, it is simply a case of reigniting a career that still promises much.

"I wouldn't change a thing, and we move on to the next one".
Promoter Frank Warren plans on Fury fighting again at Windsor Park in Belfast on August 18, on the undercard of WBO interim featherweight champion Carl Frampton's next fight.
"I'll be better next time".
With a height advantage of 10 inches and weighing almost five stone heavier than the Albanian, Fury's camp are hopeful that they will find a taller and heavier opponent for his Belfast bout.

"At the end of the day, he needs rounds and he got four under his belt".
"I did a bit of dancing, threw a couple of punches and it was just about getting back to being under the lights again - it's been a long time", he added.
