Chisora: Tyson Fury is a Poor Man's Wladimir Klitschko!

Dereck Chisora has branded heavyweight rival Tyson Fury a "dreamer" ahead of their British and Commonwealth title clash later this month.

The pair put their unbeaten records on the line at Wembley Arena on July 23, but Chisora says Fury does not stand a chance.

"Fury brings a dream, little else, into the ring," Chisora said.

"He is a poor man's version of (Wladimir) Klitschko - upright and robotic. He's like a tall tree and, like a tree, if you chop away at the trunk the tree will fall."

Chisora, who will concede height and weight advantages for the fight, insists the war of words between the two will mean nothing to him on the night.

"His actions haven't affected me at all," Chisora added.

"He comes across as someone trying hard to convince himself more than others. Empty vessels make the most noise. I will show everyone that I am the top domestic heavyweight and that Fury isn't what he thinks.

"I am the British and Commonwealth heavyweight champion and beating Fury will prove that and remove another pretender."

A fight between Chisora and Klitschko has fallen through in the past, but after his weekend win over David Haye the Ukrainian spoke about the possibility of meeting the winner of Chisora-Fury at a later date.

Chisora certainly hopes that is the case.

"The Klitschko chapter was a disappointment twice and very frustrating, but life goes on and my mental strength will not allow it to affect the outcome of this fight," he said.

"Life is full of disappointments but, you learn to deal with them, and move on.

"Klitschko owes me a fight. I hope he's a man of integrity and honours his commitment to me."

I favor Chisora in this one. Fury is still an awkward, overgrown pup, who's barely progressed past the stage of almost accidentally knocking himself out. Should be interesting though. And yeah, not quite the slam he was hoping it would…
