Photos: Fury, Ustinov Go Face To Face and Promise War

Tyson Fury is adamant that he will score a knockout on Saturday night at the Phones 4 U Arena in Manchester. He was scheduled to face Dereck Chisora, pulled out of the rematch, which was billed as a final eliminator for the WBO title, on Monday.

While promoter Frank Warren insists Fury is contractually locked in to a rearranged date in October, the 6ft 9in Manchester fighter insists he wants to face WBC champion Bermane Stiverne if he gets past Chisora's stand-in opponent Alexander Ustinov.

"After I've done with this lummox in front of me (Ustinov) I want Bermane Stiverne for the WBC title. I want to fight real fighters who want to fight. I started in a career in boxing to be involved in good fights, for people to say 'yes (he) fought good fighters and didn't pick and choose'."

Ustinov is a much different proposition to Chisora, standing seven inches taller, at 6ft 8in, and some four stones heavier. More importantly, he has lost only once in his 29 fights to date, and that came against Kubrat Pulev in September 2012 in an IBF eliminator bout.

Never thought much of Ustinov as a prospect or contender or anything but taking this kind of fight on this kind of notice? Major respect for that. He wants to get some. Come get it.

[QUOTE=IIG;14792624]Fury gained my respect for the remainder of his career by accepting this challenge on short notice. I wish more fighters were like him.[/QUOTE] This! The fact that he seeks out the best is what makes me a fan. Guys…
