TYSON FURY’S opponent for his highly anticipated comeback fight on June 9 has been announced: Sefer Seferi will be the man he faces.

The Albanian has a record of 23 wins in 24 fights, with a massive 21 coming by way of knockout. The one defeat he has to his name came in a points loss and when I first saw this guy’s record I thought “oh s***, this guy is a beast”.

But then I dug a little deeper into his record and found out some interesting facts, such as all of his fights apart from one have been at cruiserweight.
