Dereck Chisora (20-4, 13KOs) has promised to punish and humble domestic rival Tyson Fury (22-0, 16KOs) on July 26th at the Phones 4u Arena in Manchester. Chisora's EBU heavyweight title will be at stake, and the vacant British crown as well. Chisora wants payback for his twelve round decision loss to Fury in July of 2011. Chisora has won five in a row, including four by knockout, as he enters the fight.
“He needs to remember that I’m the Champion coming into this fight, I hold the European title, he’s the challenger. I was at my worst when we fought and he couldn’t stop me. I’ll be coming in bang on 17st and I’ll have fitness and power. I’ll destroy his body and go hunting for his head. He’d better be fit and ready for what I’ve coming for him,” Chisora said.
“Tyson needs the publicity, he has to do things and say things that get people talking about him to make him feel important, he still feels he has to prove things to people. I don’t feel that need I’ll let my fists do the talking and I’ll destroy Fury in just the same style you see now, cool, calm and collected.
“There’s a lot on the line in the fight, he took my titles and unbeaten record last time, but things are different now three years later. Manchester is going to buzzing on the night, it’s going to be a great great fight and a Dereck Chisora victory.”
