Tyson Fury To Take it Easy, But Eyes Dimitrenko
Share Click Here To Email Printable version Search BoxingScene Database 

Manchester heavyweight Tyson Fury is in no rush to challenge for world honors after taking the British and Commonwealth titles from Dereck Chisora at Wembley Arena.

Amid a fiery build-up, WBO, IBF and WBA heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko expressed an interest in fighting the winner of the showdown between the two domestic rivals.

Chisora has twice been slated to meet Klitschko in the past eight months, only for the Ukrainian to pull out through injury on both occasions.

And that was perhaps just as well for the 27-year-old Londoner, who looked some way from being a legitimate world championship contender last night with his customary speed and elusiveness severely compromised by weighing in at a career-high 18st 9lb.

By contrast, the 6ft 9in Fury, who improved to an unblemished career record of 15-0 while inflicting a first professional defeat on Chisora (14-1), gave the clearest evidence yet that he can become the master of his considerable physical attributes.

Even so, contrary to some predictable pre-fight bravado, the 23-year-old is happy to bide his time before trying to become Britain's latest world champion.

"I'm only just starting off at the moment," he said. "People like Carl Froch, David Haye and Amir Khan are all world champions - well not David Haye any more!

"But they've all achieved more than me. Hopefully I can emulate what they've done and get some more titles.

"I just want to do it nice and steady. I'm going to go for the Irish title next followed by a defence of the British.

"Then maybe I can go for (Alexander) Dimitrenko who's got the European title."

Fury is eligible to box for the vacant Irish crown thanks to his Romany family heritage and is eyeing a clash with veteran Belfast brawler Martin Rogan.

Rogan, 40, played an unusual cameo from ringside at Wembley, inexplicably springing from his seat to share some thoughts with the two combatants as they grappled on the ropes in round 10.

"I want to go to Kings Hall, Belfast for 'Big Marty'," Fury added. "I can't wait to get over there."

If that bout does go ahead it can be expected to benefit from primetime terrestrial exposure, as Fury v Chisora did on Channel Five.

Fury's promoter Mick Hennessy believes regular free-to-air outings - a rarity in modern boxing - will lend mass-appeal to his charge.

"We have a situation where we have options, but his next fight is going to be on Five," Hennessy said.

"I've noticed non-boxing people talking about this fight, talking about Tyson Fury. He's been getting recognised in the street by non-boxing people.

"If we have about five or six outings on terrestrial TV he's going to be a household name for sure."

[QUOTE=BIGPOPPAPUMP]regular free-to-air outings - a rarity in modern boxing[/QUOTE] I don't know how it is in your country, but in Germany this is a regular case. Several TV channels broadcast boxing fights live for free: RTL (Klitschkos), ARD (Sauerland Promotions), EuroSport (Arena Box Promo...

[QUOTE=Freedom.]Dimitrenko-Fury would be close to an even matchup. I'd like to see Fury develop a bit more with a couple of easier opponents like Audley Harrison before stepping up and taking a riskier fight with Dimitrenko.[/QUOTE] i was thinking the same thing...harrison would be good but...

[QUOTE=edgarg]Ireland has a kind of "split-personality" system. Ireland are now 2 separate and independent Sovereigh States, yet, because of the history of Nationalism, and the hundreds of years of rebellions and uprisings against the British Crown, some of it still remains. For instance, The Rep...

[QUOTE=frosty-g]How would ROMANY heritage make someone eligible to fight for an IRISH title?!![/QUOTE] Likely beause either his father or mother were born in Ireland, or their parents were born there. I think they have a rather loose sort of citizenship system. If he was born in Manchester, that...
