Fury Rejects Chisora Rematch: Pulev or Adamek Next

By Nick Parkinson, courtesy of The Daily Star

TYSON FURY’S promoter Mick Hennessy hopes to match him against Kubrat Pulev next – rather than David Haye or Dereck Chisora.

The 6ft 9ins heavyweight giant is training in Belgium while Hennessy tries to do a deal with Bulgarian Pulev for an IBF title eliminator bout to decide who fights world No.1 Wladimir Klitschko.

Since climbing off the canvas to KO Yank Steve Cunningham in seven rounds on a thrilling US debut at Madison Square Garden last month, Fury has been a man in demand.

Morecambe’s unbeaten Fury, 24, had an offer this week to face British rival Chisora in a rematch at Wembley Arena on July 20 – but Hennessy knocked it back.

Former WBA world heavyweight champion Haye, 31, has also been linked with Fury.

The Londoner recently ­postponed next month’s fight with Manuel Charr due to a hand injury so would be available in the autumn.

But Hennessy’s preferred choice is unbeaten European champion Pulev in September – with victory guaranteeing a shot at Ukrainian Klitschko and his three world title belts.

He said: “Ideally we would like to make the Pulev fight next for Tyson as long as it’s commercially viable.

“A fight with Chisora is not happening. It was a decent offer but with the IBF title situation ongoing, we can’t take another fight until that is resolved, one way or another.

“The goal is to become world champion and Pulev is a good route.”

Hennessy is not ruling out the chance of fighting Haye later this year.

But he warned: “There are a lot of hurdles to clear before it can happen.”

Fury’s uncle and trainer, Peter Fury, expects any showdown with Haye will be later in 2013, with either Pulev or America-based Pole Tomasz Adamek next.

He said: “Some people are speculating that Haye isn’t injured and that it has got something to do with us but that’s rubbish.

“Pulev and Adamek could be put on HBO. It’s going to be an exciting 12 months, now Tyson is the man to beat.”

Fury is fighting one of two top 10 HWs while David Haye pulls out of a fight with Manuel Charr. [QUOTE=Alx.;13417527]please pick pulev[/QUOTE] Judging from the quotes his promoter already has picked Pulev.

Obviously Adamek, their excuse for not takinga Haye fight was that he was going to fight the eliminator against Pulev for a title shot. Now they are thinking about an Adamek fight? Quack, Quack......

If it is an Adamek fight, Fury will win purely on the size difference.
