Tyson Fury: My Right Hands Will Detonate Basile's Jaw!

Tyson Fury will take on veteran Argentine Gonzalo Omar Basile at London's Copper Box next month.

The unbeaten heavyweight has been confirmed on the undercard of Dereck Chisora's February 15 European title defense.

A date with 39-year-old Basile is Fury's first action since he stopped Steve Cunningham at Madison Square Garden in April last year.

"It's been a while," he told frankwarren.com, "but I'm looking forward to getting in the ring again and showing the world that Tyson Fury is back in action and on course for the world title.

"I wouldn't say that rust has set in because I haven't fought, I'm always training and in the gym sparring, but I'm now desperate to get in the ring at the Copper Box Arena in front of a big electric crowd and do what I was born and bred to do, fight and win."

Basile - three inches shorter than Fury at 6ft 6in - has been beaten eight times in 69 fights and has twice suffered crushing defeats in three trips to Europe.

Alexander Dimitrenko and Artur Szpilka both dealt with him in short measure, Dimitrenko winning inside a round in Germany in 2006 and Szpilka claiming a fourth-round knockout win six years later.

But a circumspect Fury said: "Basile looks good. He's experienced with 70 fights and has fought in plenty of title fights.

"He's seen a lot in his career against the likes of Dimitrenko and Szpilka, but he's never seen a man like Tyson Fury before."

"He's just a few inches shorter than me which is great because I've been fighting shorter men. He'll be near my height and once I work out the range and timing, those big right hands will be detonating on his jaw."

"Basile has fought in plenty of title fights." Funny line, Fury! Funny Line! The big pikey must be confusing Basile with Carmen Basilio who would be a tougher test even though he's dead.

Mr Stupid talks about his "tough" fight against an old journeyman

It's probably the same hand that he used to detonate his brain right after he punched himself in the face.
