Tyson Fury Looks To Change, Eliminate Bad Boy Image

By Edward Chaykovsky

Heavyweight Tyson Fury (22-0, 16KOs) is mentally focused on winning a high stakes rematch with Dereck Chisora (20-4, 13KOs) on July 26th at Phones 4U Arena in Manchester. The EBU/British/WBO International titles will be at stake.

Fury decisioned Chisora over twelve rounds back in 2011. Known for his controversial pre-fight banter and wild antics, Fury has kept his cool in the press and plans to stay full focused on training. He wants to leave his verbal tactics in the past.

“I went down to London last week for a question and answer session with Del Boy – and if people expected me to kick off, they were disappointed. I’m not interested in that any more. You’ve got two British heavyweights going up against each other. I’m not going to be the one to get fined to sell the fight. I’m not a promoter – I’m a fighter. All those days of causing scenes are over. I’m sick to death of them. I’m going to show people the nice guy. I’ve been nicknamed the bad boy of British boxing, but what more can I do?," Fury told the Manchester Evening News.

I didn't realise he had a bad boy image.he comes across as an absolute imbecile,thus the reason folk will laugh so hard when he finally steps up his opposition and is knocked out,cold.

Fury isn't dumb at all. I used to think he was a complete spaz but he's actually very switched on. The way he picked apart David Haye in the press conferences and on Ringside was magnificent.

remember he said he had a bad boy image in the UK. So that means by THEIR standards. By OUR standards here in the U.S. he's a joke but in England they even view David Gaye as a "bad boy"…

Noisy boy or clumsy boy maybe, but bad boy? Nah.
