Tyson Fury's Comeback Opponent For Saturday Isn't Striking Fear Into People

Two and a half years ago Tyson Fury produced one of the most shocking and brilliant moments in modern boxing when he beat Wladimir Klitschko to become heavyweight champion. Finally on Saturday he makes his comeback but his opponent is hardly looking frightening.

When Tyson Fury travelled to Germany in November 2015 no one really expected him to beat Wladimir Klitschko and become the unified heavyweight champion, despite his 24-0 record, but that's exactly what he did.

The fight might not have been one of the most exciting to watch but it was a tactical masterclass by the Englishman as he out thought his opponent.

Unfortunately in the two years that have followed the 29 year old has had to deal with a failed drugs test and fighting depression and he's not been back in the ring since, with Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder filling the space as heavyweight champions.

Finally after a stupidly long hiatus Fury returns to the ring on Saturday night in his hometown at the Manchester Arena to make his comeback.

In the opposite corner will be Albanian Sefer Seferi and one video of him training won't exactly leave Fury quaking in his boots:

One could argue that it's harsh to judge him on such a short video in an open workout but it's not exactly a good sign ahead of Saturday.

Seferi's record isn't bad as he's actually won 23 fights and lost just one. The problem is that the 'Real Deal' is 39 and a cruiserweight with his only heavyweight fight being his only professional loss.

We hope the video is misleading or this might be as exciting as David Haye's comeback fights.
