The long-awaited return of former World Heavyweight Champion Tyson “Gypsy King” Fury is today against Sefer “The Real Deal” Seferi in the 10-round main event, airing in Canada exclusively on Super Channel (2:00 p.m. ET / 11:00 a.m. PT. start), live from Manchester Arena in Manchester, United Kingdom.
He’s Back: Fury vs. Seferi is a presentation of Frank Warren’s Queensbury Promotions.
Fury (25-0, 15 KOs) has been sidelined with mental health issues for the past 2 ½ years, after he shocked the boxing world November 28, 2015, when he defeated future Hall of Famer Wladimir Klitschko (64-3, 53 KOs) by way of a 10-round unanimous decision (116-111, 115-112, 115-112).
The 6′ 9″ Fury became the undisputed world heavyweight champion, securing the IBF, WBA, WBO, IBO and The Ring championships, only to be stripped and/or relinquish his title belts without a single defense.
Undefeated Brit Terry “Turbo” Flanagan (33-0, 13 KOs) takes on unbeaten American Maurice “Mighty Mo” Hooker (23-0-3, 16 KOs) for the vacant WBO super-lightweight world title in the 12-round co-featured event.
Three other exciting fights on the “He’s Back: Fury vs. Seferi” card, in addition to the previously mentioned main event and co-feature, will air in Canada exclusively on Super Channel:
