Tyson Fury: Chisora No Threat, He's Getting Knocked Out

TYSON FURY says watching Dereck Chisora almost sent him to sleep and is now confident of sending his British rival into slumberland. Unbeaten Fury was scathing of the man he is set to fight in an WBO world title eliminator as the duo kept on course to meet again with respective wins over Joey Abell and Kevin Johhson at London’s Copper Box Arena on Saturday.

Chisora ground out a unanimous points victory over former Fury victim Johnson, after Fury had earlier stopped Abell in four rounds having floored him four times.

Asked for his view on Chisora’s contest, Fury said: “Listen, I was going to sleep in that chair, to be honest.

“They were trying their best, God bless them, but they’re not world-class fighters.

“It was more like an eight-round fight on some undercard somewhere, with two lemons who could fight inside a phonebox. There was no skill, no boxing, no jabs, it was a brawl with two blumps going at each other.

“They say Chisora’s improved, he looks the same one-paced fighter to me. He’s getting knocked out next time, he’s no threat to me at all.

“It’s a foregone conclusion and it won’t go the distance.”

Fury gained a points decision over Chisora back in 2011 and discussing their potential rematch he added: “I beat Chisora on the inside last time, he’s a mid-range fighter.

“If I go behind the jab and box him he’s got no chance. So I’m going straight to him and have a war with him.

“I’m going to make this an exciting TV fight, that’s a promise. Or, if you want me to, I’ll box southpaw with one hand behind my back and I’m still confident I can beat Dereck Chisora.

“He’s lost some weight by eating less pies and cream cakes, but that’s all he’s improved.

“Anyone can get lucky with a big swing but it’s not going to get me, I can’t wait to fight him again.”

Fury was just happy to be back in the ring himself on Saturday after almost a year out and the bitter frustration of seeing two big fights with David Haye fall through.

The Manchester man said: “I felt good, I had some fun in there. I knocked over a decent big guy four times, played some games, did a bit of showboating and entertaining, it’s good to be back.”

Both Chisora and Fury fight in April before clashing at Upton Park on June 7 or July 19 - with the winner set to challenge world champion Wladimir Klitschko, who defends against Australian Alex Leapai in Germany on April 26.

Despite his fifth straight win Chisora said: “I should be happy because I won but I am very upset, gutted.

“I know I can do better than that. It’d have been different if he’d come to win, Fury will come to fight.

“He’s not in great shape right now but will be when he fights me. We know what kind of mind games he is playing right now.

    “They say Chisora’s improved, he looks the same one-paced fighter to me. He’s getting knocked out next time, he’s no threat to me at all”

“I just hope when Tyson loses against me, he’ll know how to come back because it’s difficult to motivate yourself sometimes after a loss.”

Whatever their outcome, Fury is convinced Klitschko will not fight him, claiming the Ukrainian is “scared” of both Brits. He said: “When I beat Chisora I’ll be mandatory but I bet he avoids me.

“I was at Wladimir’s Austrian training camp a while back when he was due to fight Chisora and he wouldn’t spar me. We were in a sauna with other boxers and he’s known as the sauna king champion.

“I can’t stand saunas at all and this one was the hottest thing I’ve ever been in. But I’m competitive in whatever I do, and, even though I thought I was going to pass out, I was the last one to leave. We both knew it was on.

“All the boys said to me ‘What did you do to him in there? He’s gone off to his room in a huff.” And one of his camp said ‘What did you say to Wlad, to the champ?’

“I told him ‘I didn’t say anything to him, but I beat your man in a competition already. He knows mentally he won’t beat me at anything’.”
