Conned and cheated are the two words that immediately spring to mind.

With Tyson Fury set to return to the ring on 9 June, in Manchester, we’ve been eagerly awaiting for the announcement as to who the ‘Gypsy King’ will be fighting.

Now, having been out of action since that monumental night, in Dusseldorf, when his boxing skills saw Wladimir Klitschko lose his belts, we didn’t expect Tyson to be matched with a top-10 contender.

However, with Tyson installed as the headline act, surely we’re entitled to a competitive fight, especially when you consider the ticket prices.

Instead, it was announced, well more slipped out without an accompanying fanfare of trumpets, Fury’s comeback opponent will be the Albanian fighter, Sefer Seferi.

Okay, some might point out that Seferi has a record that reads 23-1, on paper a decent record, but he normally operates as a cruiserweight and will have bulked up to take on Fury.

If, as we suspect, Fury is serious about regaining his past glories, the former IBF, WBA and WBO world title holder should blow Seferi away and get an early, convincing win.

Unfortunately, if that does happen and we learn nothing new about Tyson Fury MKII then the words conned and cheated could be an accurate description.
