Tyson Fury: Haye, Chisora are Losers, My Time To Shine!

By Nick Parkinson, courtesy of The Daily Star

TYSON FURY has branded David Haye and Dereck Chisora “losers” and insists he is now Britain’s best heavyweight hope.

The 6ft 9in giant took his unbeaten record to 19 wins with his fourth straight stoppage after battering New Yorker Vinny Maddalone in five rounds in Clevedon, Somerset, on Saturday.

Fury, 23, wants a crack at WBA-IBF-WBO world champ Wladimir Klitschko next year and insists he is Britain’s best chance of ending the Ukrainian brothers’ domination of the heavyweight scene.

Haye, 31, lost his WBA belt to Wladimir a year ago and Chisora, 28, was outpointed by WBC king Vitali in February.

Haye and Chisora collide in a controversial clash at Upton Park this Saturday – but Fury has no intention of meeting the winner.

The Mancunian said: “They’ve had their chance.

“Haye blew it, then complained about his toe against Wladimir, while Chisora was a competitive loser against Vitali.

“They are losers and it’s my time to shine. It’s my era and I will reign once I get my shot.

“I’m the leading heavyweight in Britain by a mile.

“I’ve fought the best opponents compared to the other British heavyweights.

“I’m not interested in fighting either of them. I’ve fought Chisora and beat him a year ago anyway.

“If Haye wins, he will try to get a Klitschko fight, but it will be me who fights one of them next.”

Fury, who expects to return in October with Pole Tomasz Adamek a possibility, admits he has still some improving to do before he is ready for Wladimir, 36.

The world No.1 is running out of people to beat up after halting American Tony Thompson for the second time in four years with a sixth-round stoppage on Saturday.

But gypsy Fury – ranked sixth by the WBC – insists he will not be rushed into a world title shot.

He added: “I’m not interested in taking a payday against Klitschko and I’ve got a year until that.

“I’ll take the fight when it’s right. I’m on my time, not his.

“I won’t be rushed and I’ve got a long time left.

“I’ve got a lot of learning to do, and I want big fights, but they take time to happen so it’s going to take a while to set up.

“Wladimir badly needs some new challengers, but it will be when it’s my time and not before.

“He can carry on having easy fights until then.”

Fury should have kept his mouth shut and faced David Price. Either that, or carry on fighting bums on channel 5.

Has everyone forgotten that Fury already stopped Chisora last year?

[QUOTE=komodo;12317497]Fury's no better, if he fought Price like he was supposed to instead of vacating like a b1tch he'd have a loss on his record too.[/QUOTE] Or two if you count the first McDermott gift.
