TYSON FURY reckons beating Dereck Chisora will be the easy part of landing a world title shot.

The unbeaten Manchester-born heavyweight expects a tougher battle to get champion Wladimir Klitschko into the ring to face him.

Fury, 25, is set for a WBO-title eliminator against Chisora, 30, in a mouth-watering rematch between the pair this summer if they both come through their next two fights unbeaten.

Both are in action tonight at London’s Copper Box Arena in the first of two fights before they square off against each other in June or July.

Fury takes on big-punching Joey Abell.

But Fury, who beat Chisora in 2011, does not believe WBO, IBF and WBA champ Klitschko will face him even if he does win the eliminator for the Ukrainian’s WBO belt.

The unbeaten heavyweight admits he may have to wait for Klitschko to retire before he can get a title shot as the Ukrainian does not want to risk taking him on.

He said: “Beating Dereck is the easy part. Getting the shot off Klitschko is the hard part.

“I don’t think Wladimir wants to fight me. You can’t force someone to fight you - as we know with David Haye. Look what happened there.

“I don’t think he is afraid - because fighters aren’t really afraid of anyone - but it’s not about fighting anymore is it? It’s a business.

“You’re not going to take a hard fight and jeopardize yourself. You can earn more in the long run or earn less for a harder one.

“I will probably have to wait until he retires.

“My time will come. Whether it’s this year, next year or in five years.

Wlad would test Fury's chin which I think is average, but my biggest curiosity is how Wlad deals with another big man that lets his hands go in combination. This fight is a seller for me and I would buy it on PPV. Fury will throw leather and it has the makings of an early night for somebody. (m...

[QUOTE=LacedUp]I think Wlad would have interest in fighting Fury. I think he's at the stage where challenges are welcome - he's beaten everyone, and the smaller fights are harder to get up for. Would enjoy Fury getting his shot. The build up would be hilarious.[/QUOTE] At least Fury will come ...
