The 29-year-old is adamant his evident success in shaping up for a ring return will increase his popularity levels and, more importantly, serve as an inspiration for others who may be going through similar health issues.
"I could have knocked him out in the first round, but what good would that have done me?"
"It meant miracles (to be back in the ring)".
"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".
In the build-up to his comeback fight this weekend, Tyson Fury has been keen to emphasise his happiness, fitness and focus, as you might expect.
"Looking at both fighters' records, the gulf in class between the two is obviously apparent and the fact that Seferi's only ever defeat came when he stepped out of cruiserweight and up to heavyweight late past year at a much lower level leaves the impression he could have a long night on his hands on Saturday".

Former Unified Heavyweight World Champion Tyson Fury took one more step toward ending his 31-month exile from the sport as he met face-to-face with Sefer Seferi at the final press conference Wednesday at the Midland Hotel in Manchester.
The contest at times resembled a pantomine with Fury gurning and throwing his arms into the air through much of the opening round.
With boos ringing down from the upper tiers, it was hardly the victorious homecoming Fury had in mind - but much more relevant contests are sure to follow.
After four rounds in which Fury grinned and gloated - at one point earning a stern telling-off from referee Phil Edwards for his showboating - Seferi, who had barely thrown a punch in anger, declared he had had enough.
Manuel Charr, the German who holds the secondary WBA belt, is being mentioned as a future opponent but it would be surprising if he is in the corner for Fury's next fight at Windsor Park in Belfast, Northern Ireland, on August 18.
Frampton headlines a historic night in Belfast on August 18 and Fury has been added to the undercard.
"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".

The planets are a close match to Earth in size, but they're positioned much, much closer to their star than Earth is to the Sun. In a discovery by NASA, it was said that the NASA's Kepler satellite has discovered three Earth-like planets has been found.
Adrina Price commented: 'Sad to see George playing with a gun when the whole country has a gun/knife crime situation. The trio had a lovely time, with photographs showing them running around and smiling throughout the sunny event.
North Korea has nothing like a free press, so it is unclear in exactly what function the North Korean "reporters" were serving. Still, they said, the initial Trump-Kim summit could at least yield an agreement to keep negotiating.
As you might guess from the title, we can probably expect a standalone spin-off of similar size to Wolfenstein: The Old Blood. During their E3 presentation , Bethesda made the surprise announcement that another Wolfenstein experience is on the way.
