Chisora: I Punch Harder, My Skills are Better Than Fury

By Kevin Francis, courtesy of The Daily Star

DERECK Chisora aims to get back on the world title trail when he clashes with fellow  Tyson Fury next Saturday.

Dereck Chisora, 27, saw TWO shots against world heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko fall through earlier this year.

But now unbeaten Chisora puts his British and Commonwealth belt on the line against Fury, 23, and is determined to muscle his way back to the world stage.

The fight at Wembley Arena is live from 10pm on Channel 5.

Chisora said: “Everything is on the line against Fury. We are both unbeaten and the winner goes on to better things.

“But the one thing I have that he doesn’t is skills – and that’s going to be the big difference on the night, believe me.

“I punch harder and my all-round skills are better.

“I am the No.1 in Britain and I want to be at the top for another five years and nobody is going to push me off this throne.

“I can’t wait to get in there with Tyson. It will be a good fight.

“Once I get through with him, then I want to meet the likes of David Price and John McDermott before I go on for the world title.”

Mancunian Fury, who threatened to kill his London rival in a conference call on Thursday, said: “I can’t wait because he is not going to be able to stand up to me.

“He hasn’t got the bottle for a real fight. I have been calling him out for a long time and the only reason he is fighting me now is because I am the mandatory challenger.

“He doesn’t have the power he says he has and I’m going to show that next week.”I HAVE five pairs of tickets to give away for the big Channel 5 fight night at Wembley Arena next Saturday.

Dereck Chisora and Tyson Fury lock horns in a heavyweight Battle of Britain that promises to be explosive viewing.

For your chance to win a pair of tickets, just answer this simple question: In what weight division do Chisora and Fury fight?

Chisora is alot like David Tua to me and a decent fighter with a good chin can beat David Tua. Fury has more skills than Chisora but will his Chin stand tall as well? I think so, and the size…
