Chisora-Fury II - EBU Championship Added To The Fight
Share Click Here To Email Printable version Search BoxingScene Database 

The heavyweight fight of the year between Dereck Chisora and Tyson Fury just got bigger.

It was announced yesterday that Chisora and Fury will clash in a Final Eliminator For The WBO World Heavyweight title on Saturday 26th July at the Phones 4 U Arena in Manchester.

The winner will get the number one spot for the right to fight WBO World Champion Wladimir Klitschko and the Vacant British Championship will also be contested.

And now Chisora's European title has been added to the mix after Bulgarian Kubrat Pulev pulled out of purse bids freeing the way for Finchley star Chisora to put it on the line against Fury.

Manchester puncher Fury was the next in line to fight Chisora for the EBU title and with the big-fight already made between Fury and Chisora it made perfect sense.

Promoter Frank Warren said, "Chisora and Fury is the biggest all-British heavyweight fight in recent years. There's so much on the line for both men, the winner will get the number one spot to Klitschko, the vacant British title is up for grabs and now Chisora's European title has been added. Both men have got everything to fight for and I believe that you'll see the very best from both of them. They are proud fighting men and neither man will back down. For that reason you're going to see something special on the night."

Tickets are available now, priced from 50, through Eventim on 0844 249 1000 or

Fury v Chisora will be live and exclusive on BoxNation (Sky Ch. 437/HD 490 and Virgin Ch. 546).

So Warren is gonna try and sell this fight off as an eliminator to a Klitschko fight that won't take place until 13 months from now ! Talk about piggy backing the Klitschko's success to sell a fight between two half wits.the biggest battle these guys have been in to date is the same one Odlanier ...

Say what you like about Alphabet belts, but these two belts are proper championships with great tradition behind them and actually signify that you are a champion of a certain region. Better than Copper and Inter-Galatic belts with no meaning attached besides a quick ranking.

"Biggest all-British heavyweight clash in years", really? Chisora-Haye was way bigger, 30,000 at Upton Park. We've seen these two fight before, it was a pretty poor spectacle as I remember, and Fury looked like garbage last time out. Glad it's a while away, Chisora looks like he's been on the pie...

[QUOTE=johnnycontrolet]It was always clear and you hopefully marked my words Pulev and Sauerland would never dare to fight Chisora[/QUOTE] [QUOTE=Dirk Diggler UK]As expected, Pulev wanted none of Chisora.[/QUOTE] Don't be imbeciles.why would Pulev schedule a fight with Chisora when he has a...
