Tyson Fury: Dereck Chisora is Scared To Death of Me!

Tyson Fury believes heavyweight rival Dereck Chisora is already beaten psychologically ahead of their potentially explosive showdown at Wembley Arena on Saturday night.

British and Commonwealth champion Chisora brings his belts into the ring against a man boasting an identical 14-0 professional record.

The duo have been on a collision course for some time, but with many of boxing's famous battles adjudged to have been won or lost before the first bell, Fury is confident he holds the advantage.

"This fight is already won and lost," he said. "He's already lost it mentally.

"He's mentally scared of me, physically scared of me and it will show on the night - just like Michael Spinks was of Mike Tyson. He's already lost his battle."

Tyson took a mere 89 seconds to dismantle Spinks in their June 1988 world title clash and Fury, who was born in the same month and named after the heavyweight phenomenon by his pugilist father, is refusing to rule out a similarly swift night's work in London.

He said: "I see Chisora taking a lot of punishment, a lot of jabs in the face, a lot of uppercuts, a lot of hooks. And when he gets in close I'm going to beat him on the inside.

"I don't predict knockouts as in what round, but it could be the first because as soon as I hit him he's gone.

"He's just scared to death of me. He won't come to any press conferences."

Chisora has failed to appear for any of the pre-fight pleasantries after Fury threatened to "kill" his opponent in a fiery conference call last week.

The Manchester fighter apologised immediately for the outburst and insisted no literal meaning should be attached to his "slang" term.

"I don't use it as in 'I'm going to murder you' literally. It's like a slang word for 'you're going to get it if you don't behave'," he explained.

WBO, IBF and WBA heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko is expected to be an interested observer, having twice pulled out of proposed bouts with Chisora before hinting at a fight with the winner of the British clash.

Despite the Ukrainian's dominance of David Haye earlier this month, Fury sees nothing to fear in Klitschko having shared a gym with the champion and his trainer Emmanuel Steward last year.

"It was great," he said of his time alongside the duo. "It opened my eyes to what Klitschko really is.

"Obviously he's a great champion and I've got a lot of admiration for him because he's done a lot in the sport, but he's very beatable and I know how to beat him."

On the undercard, Ashley Theophane will make the first defence of his British light-welterweight title against Welsh veteran Jason Cook.

I believe Fury will take this. Derek has got skills but I think Furys size and power will be to much for him! I wouldnt put money on it though
