Tyson Fury: Dereck Chisora is a Bum, Running Scared

By Mark Vester

Heavyweight prospect Tyson Fury has unleashed another verbal attack on British and Commonwealth champion Dereck Chisora. Nothing is stopping the fight from taking place. Fury is the mandatory challenger to Chisora's British title. Chisora was set to face WBO/IBO/IBF champion Wladimir Klitschko on April 30th. Klitschko withdrew with an injury. Fury claims Chisora is avoiding the fight.

"It's ridiculous," Fury said to The Sunday Mirror. "He's running scared. He knows I'm a better fighter and is scared of losing. If I was in his shoes I would have no hesitation in giving up my British and Commonwealth belts. It's a joke. He's having a go at me, but let's face it - I can out-talk, out-think and out-fight him any day of the week."

Fury said it's good for Chisora that Klitschko withdrew from the fight.

"Chisora is a bum. He's no good. He'd get annihilated against Klitschko. I've got more chance of winning the Lottery than he has of winning that one. Who is Dereck Chisora anyway? "No one's heard of him. But everyone's heard of me - especially because of my name. Mind you, it's not my fault he's got an average name like Dereck," Fury said.

[QUOTE=JoeyZagz;10204518]This is actually the best fight that can be made outside the Top 10. Fury's getting buzz from hanging out with Klitschko and Chisora from having fights canceled with Klitschko. THey should sign this NOW while the hype is still…

This would be a much better Brit Heavyweight fight than Haye and that guy who screamed.

Can you imagine if Fury was in Haye's position at the moment, the guy would be unbearable!!!! I would like to see this fight but Del might want a warm up fight after being messed around by Wlad.
