Former WBA/IBF and WBO heavyweight Champion Tyson Fury took one more step toward ending his 31-month exile Wednesday when he met face-to-face with Sefer Seferi at the final press conference at the Midland Hotel in Manchester,England.


Fury returns for the first time since shocking the world and ripping the heavyweight titles away from long time champion Wladimir Klitschko three years ago, when he faces Seferi in a 10 round bout at the Manchester Arena.


Fury is an odds on favourite to defeat the 39 year-old former cruiswerweight but Fury is not leaving anything to chance.


Speaking at the press conference, Fury said:"If he has knocked out 21 men before, if he gets it on my chin he will knock me out too.


"I look at Sefer like I look at Wladimir Klitschko, Deontay Wilder, Anthony Joshua, anybody. He’s a dangerous puncher.


"I could have picked someone a lot easier than Sefer; someone to knock out in a round. But I need rounds.”


On his Heavyweight rivals, Fury added: "They know the message – I’m back. I don’t ever remember feeling any better than I do now.


"I feel sharper now, more power. I fell out of love with the game but now the love is thriving, we are back on fire for one another.


"You’re going to see the best Tyson Fury you have ever seen.”


"There are no nerves at all. I feel like I have been a goldfish in a tank, trapped and now I am getting released back into the river where I belong. So just put me there and watch me swim."


“I don’t ever remember feeling any better than I do now. I feel shaper now, faster than I’ve ever been, more power, I just want it more.


“It was a lost relationship, it was like I was married to the game too long and we sort of fell out of love with each other.”


In the opening bout of the live stream, local hero Terry Flanagan (33-0, 13 KO’s) will look to become a two-division world champion when he clashes with unbeaten American Maurice Hooker (23-0-3, 16 KO’s) for the vacant WBO Super Lightweight crown.
