Fury: If My Hand Was Well, I Would Have Won By KO

Tyson Fury claimed the British and Commonwealth heavyweight titles from Dereck Chisora after 12 brutal rounds at Wembley Arena on Saturday. Fury was awarded a unanimous verdict by margins of 118-111 and 117-112 (twice) on the judges' scorecards over an opponent who had raised eyebrows at Friday's weigh-in when he tipped the scales at a career-high of 261-pounds.

Chisora therefore headed into the fight almost half a stone heavier than Fury, to whom he also gave up eight inches in height. The extra weight certainly appeared a factor as the champion seemed to run out of steam in the middle of the contest after shaking his opponent in the second. Chisora then staged a thrilling but desperate - and ultimately futile - rally in the championship rounds.

"I might well have finished him and I'm not one to make excuses, but my hand is hurt and I don't tell any lies about that. I hit him with some good punches. I hit him with body shots, I hit him with head shots and wobbled him a few times. I think I could have finished him if my hand wasn't hurt, but then again it's about twelve round boxing," Fury said.

It seems that now everyone likes to give excuses "I don't like to make excuses, but ... (I had a broken toe/ my hand was hurt/ he hit me in the balls/ etc...)

What's with all these British heavyweights always making excuses for a crap performance?
