Team Fury: We're Ready For Chisora Rematch Right Now

By Jake Donovan


Their rematch isn't until July 26, but Tyson Fury and his camp insist they are ready to beat Dereck Chisora again if their fight was today. 


The in-country rivals are due to square off this summer at Phones 4U Arena in Manchester, England. The winner will become a mandatory challenger to one of the several belts held by current lineal champion Wladimir Klitschko, who first faces Alex Leapai later this month. 


Fury is chomping at the bit to fast forward to fight night.

 

“I’m so impressed with the way Tyson is looking right now, I’ve never seen him looking so dedicated, focused and determined for a fight," insists Peter Fury, uncle and head trainer to the hulking British heavyweight. "He’s in unbelievable shape, his mind is razor shape and he’s ready to fight. I’d certainly let Tyson in the ring with Chisora right now. It would be like putting a lion and a gazelle in a cage together; it would be a massacre.”


Both fighters did their part to extend their rivalry with wins over American heavyweights on the same show this past February. Fury (22-0, 16KO) enjoyed his first win - and fight - in nearly a year when he stopped journeyman Joey Abell inside of four rounds, while Chisora (20-4, 13KO) took a wide points win over front-running Kevin Johnson. 


The card was designed with the intention of immediately proceeding with a rematch to their July '11 clash, in which Fury scored a unanimous decision over a grossly overweight Chisora when both were still unbeaten prospects. 


Fury has scored knockouts in six of his last seven fights following that bout, while Chisora has seen several peaks and valleys over that time but now appears back on course. The point being, neither fighter seems to take much from the first fight. 


Tyson’s got a totally different focus from the first fight.  The first time around he was younger and inexperienced, but he still did enough to beat Chisora and made him look very ordinary,”

 

“That was three years ago," Peter Fury points out. "Tyson’s improved all-round into a top heavyweight contender since then, gaining experience, maturity and physical strength. Chisora’s done well and we respect his achievements and what he’s done since his loss to Tyson." 

 

With that, Fury and his camp know to expect a better version of Chisora, in fact the very best available version given what's at stake. The warning they issue, is for Chisora to expect the same.


"We’re sure he’s going to be fit and ready, but he’ll be no match for Tyson," the trainer insists. "Not only is Tyson too good for Chisora, he's too good for any heavyweight out there. You’re looking at the new world champion."


"(Tyson)knows what’s on the line against Chisora, pride and history.  His pride will never let him lose to Chisora, and he wants to make history and become the first world champion from the traveling community."

It's make or break time for Tyson Fury. If he gets in shape, stays in shape, and sticks to the game plans his uncle Peter will come up with for each fight - starting with Chisora - he will make…

These guys talk nonsense.Tyson himself comes out with complete garbage and is not nice to listen to , most of the time he seems bitter and confused . Entertaining to watch but like Khan likes to talk you through fights…

I think Hayes has cracked Chisora's chin and it all depends on what type of Fury turns up! If he's out of sharp like his last fight, I could see Chisora giving him problems but think if hes's shape (IF)…
