Chisora: Fury is Not Popular Anywhere, He is Hated

By Nick Parkinson, courtesy of The Daily Star

DERECK CHISORA is enjoying being the good guy for once ahead of his heavyweight rematch with Tyson Fury.

The Londoner faces Fury at Manchester’s Phones 4u Arena on Saturday after being subjected to an expletive-filled volley of insults from Fury at a press conference last week.

Fury faces punishment from the British Boxing Board of Control for his swearing rant at reformed Chisora, who he faces in a WBO world heavyweight title eliminator.

Chisora, 30, has been one of British boxing’s biggest villains in recent years after biting an opponent in the ring, kissing another at a weigh-in, slapping Vitali Klitschko at their weigh-in and then spitting water into the face of his brother Wladimir, moments before fighting Vitali in 2012.

Chisora was then banned for brawling with British rival David Haye at a press conference after losing to Vitali on points.

Now, however, a chilled Chisora has even apologised for Fury’s profanities and is confident of getting revenge for a 2011 points defeat.

Fury, 25, has home advantage but European champion Chisora insists his rival is disliked for his X-rated rants, which once got him fined by boxing bosses for remarks made on Twitter.

He said: “He’s not popular in Manchester or anywhere, only in his own travelling community.

“I was told not to swear at certain times. I can play the bad guy role very easily but I don’t need to. I love this role. I told my trainer to relax and chill out at the press conference.

“Fury’s hated. People don’t really like his attitude but deep down inside, behind his big head, he is a big family man.

“He has his kids, wife and he’s a very good father to his daughter.

“But fights are not sold by people swearing – fights are sold on things you do in the ring.

“This fight will be the easiest of my career. I can just showcase my skills and I have been at my target weight for three weeks.

“Fury looks in great shape but by the time I finish with him he will five feet five inches, not six foot nine.

“Two or three weeks ago he had lost weight and was in great shape but he’s started putting the weight back on.

[QUOTE=Red Cyclone;14780926]Contrary to what Mr Chisora is saying I don't think many people who know the full back story of him will be so keen on rooting for him... Kissing opponents Slapping opponents Spitting at opponents Hitting a woman Getting…
