Tyson Fury and Dereck Chisora will as expected meet on July 26th at the Manchester Arena in a rematch of their 2011 fight, which Fury on on points.
On that occasion Fury outpointed Chisora to claim the British and Commonwealth heavyweight titles at Wembley Stadium. The rematch will be big and is set to be a final eliminator for the world title.
Frank Warren has announced that the winner will go on to challenge reigning IBF, WBA and WBO champion Wladimir Klitschko. Mancunian Fury will have home advantage against Londoner Chisora but Dell Boy is confident of reversing the decision of the first fight and pulling off the win in Fury’s home City after Fury defeated him in his.
“I’m excited. I’m looking forward to this fight,” Chisora told TalkSPORT today when vowing to avenge his defeat to Fury three years ago.
“Tyson has got one over me and he thinks he’s the greatest fighter in Great Britain, but he’s not.
“He hasn’t fought any proper fighters, he’s only been fighting cab drivers.”
Fury hit back at Chisora’s blast by branding his rival a “journeyman”.
“Chisora could be one of those cab drivers because I’ve already beaten him once,” Fury said.
“We’re the best heavyweights in Britain and it will prove who should take on Klitschko. “Chisora is nothing more than a glorified journeyman. I’m going to show you how much of a bum he is on July 26.”
