Arena security entered after some time to stop the crowd's unrest, and to allow 29-year-old Fury to make his expected victorious march to the final bell.
"I've had a long time out the ring and I needed some rounds, so I was taking my time". It was like I was having my debut again.
"I was saving it for round five, because I said I would knock him out in round five".
"I hoped for a bigger opponent but we couldn't really get anyone, there was no one available".
"I wanted to stand and have a fight with him, but it (the retirement) happened, and it wasn't my fault that they pulled him out".
Fans will now be expecting Team Fury to take on some tougher challenges in next fights, with the The Gypsy King due to be back out on the Carl Frampton undercard on August 18 in Belfast. As he said from the beginning, it's a process. "You can see that he's still got a bit of weight to lose and you can see that he needs the rounds and we'll just have to step up his opponents each time".
Fury spent the first round clowning around
"I think it will be three or four fights before (Fury is competing in 12-round, competitive bouts.) The name of the game now is finding opponents, getting in there and keep getting that rust out of his system".
"Tony Bellew absolutely, we'd go for that before the end of the year - not a problem".
By the fourth it became apparent Fury, who sporadically unloaded right hands, could end the fight when ever he wished - but the decision was taken out of his hands by Seferi's corner when they withdrew their man at the end of the round. "In the meantime we have to get Tyson more competitive fights".
Seferi, who had campaigned nearly all his career as a cruiserweight, was never going to trouble the 6ft 9ins Fury by whom he was out-weighed by more than four-and-a-half stone, and the favourite was clearly capable of ending the fight at will.
Seferi's unsatisfactory withdrawal sent the boos - and the occasional drinks bottle - cascading down from the upper tiers, but for Fury at least, it is simply a case of reigniting a career that still promises much.
