Tyson Fury has rejected the idea of rescheduling the rematch with Dereck Chisora, who withdrew a few days ago with a fractured left hand. This coming Saturday in Manchester, Fury (22-0, 16KOs) will face the giant-sized Alexander Ustinov (29-1, 21KOs) instead.
There was talk of the rematch being rescheduled for September and now it appears it may be off for good. Instead, Fury has promised to score a knockout over the huge late-replacement and then he wants a crack at the WBC heavyweight championship, currently held by Bermane Stiverne of Canada.
Likely Fury's refusal in rescheduling the rematch is due to his past troubles with David Haye, who withdrew from two scheduled fights with Fury.
"As far as I'm concerned, Dereck Chisora is finished, he's history," said Fury to Daily Mirror. "I'm not interested in Dereck Chisora. He ain't got enough credibility to lace my boots up, never mind step in the same ring. He's a s***house. He dropped his b*****s in training and now this big lummox has had to step in and take his place.
"Dereck Chisora is another David Haye wannabe, a wannabe Tyson Fury opponent and then he realises the daunting task which lies ahead and then decides he'd rather live to fight another day than get annihilated. I'm sure Mr Warren can get him another fight along the line against some easy people. I want to fight real fighters who want to fight. I didn't start out in this game to get a 200-0 record against dinosaurs. I started this career to be involved in good fights. I'm knocking this big lummox clean out. Men like me fight anyone at any notice. I don't need a training camp to fight him."
