Tyson Fury KISSES Sefer Seferi in ring as he launches comeback boxing career

Former heavyweight king Fury made his long-awaited comeback against Sefer Seferi in June and decided to play up to the audience – even landing a kiss on the former cruiserweight before the first bell.

The showboating did not end there, with the 29-year-old continuing his antics before the Albanian was stopped in the fourth round.

But Fury has been told to cut it out and take a more serious approach for his next showdown by trainer Ben Davison – and that advice seems to have been taken on board.

Fury said: “We saw the joker in the last camp, we saw the showman, the entertainer.

“Ben wants a serious approach this time and that is what he’ll get. All business in Belfast.

“Everything is great, but if he wants me to be serious about this fight then I will be serious."

He added: “I’m not serious about anything in my whole life, everything is like fun and games – even Klitschko. I wasn’t serious – I was doing all dance moves, everything.

“But listen, if Ben wants serious, Ben will get serious. I’ll go in there and do my job and that’s it. I won’t even smile once.”

Pianeta goes into next month's fight with a record of 35 wins, one draw and four defeats, with 21 victories by KO.
