10×3 Minute Rounds International Heavyweight Contest
Tyson Fury makes his BoxNation debut as Chisora rematch looms
Fury makes his BoxNation debut when he faces American Joey Abell after Gonzalo Omar Basile pulled out a fortnight before the fight with a lung infection.
Fury won’t have it easy against Abell, who has 29 wins – 28 of them inside the distance – and only 7 losses. Abell’s last outing was a TKO defeat to the in-form Kubrat Pulev.
Fury is a likely summer opponent for London’s Dereck Chisora in what would be one of the biggest domestic fights of 2014 between Britain’s two top heavyweights. The pair first met in July 2011 when Fury won a unanimous decision to steal away the British and Commonwealth titles.
The WBO and WBA International Heavyweight Championship
Dereck Chisora begins his 2014 world title campaign at the Copper Box Arena as he aims to end the year as a world champion.
Power-punching Chisora finished off Czech Ondrej Pala inside three rounds at the Copper Box Arena to successfully defend his WBO Intercontinental belt and add the Vacant WBA International title to add to his European crown, and now he’s eyeing up a what would be a fifth consecutive knockout win against former world title challenger Kevin “Kingpin” Johnson.
