Would love Dereck Chisora to knockout Tyson Fury and finally shut him up but I don't see this happening due to his lack of punching power and Fury's heart. I do think though that Chisora can out point Fury. Tyson did win their first fight but Chisora was a fat blob and terribly out of shape. Since then he has sorted himself out and improved big time, even getting in the ring with Vitali Klitschko, David Haye and Robert Helenius. As for Fury he has went on to face bums and cruiserweights. Not to mention his inactivity fighting only twice in the last 18 months won't help him.
Was watching the press conference yesterday. Fury was bragging he would put any amount of money on himself winning so Chisora wanted to bet him £10K he would win the fight but Fury referred to that as chump change and said that he would spend that in the chippy lol So they shaked hands on £100,000.
Dereck Chisora has been forced to withdraw from this Saturday's fight with Tyson Fury in Manchester.
The promoters announced that heavyweight Chisora had fractured his hand in training and would not be able to defend his European title against Fury this weekend. The vacant British heavyweight crown was also up for grabs.
Chisora injured his hand during a sparring session which means their clash will have to be rescheduled on a date yet to be decided.
In a statement from the promoters, Chisora said: "I can't tell you how disappointed I am to have to pull out of the fight against Fury.
“But it is on the advice of my specialist that I have to do this.
"I'm sorry for the fans who will get to miss this great fight between me and Tyson but once my hand is healed and I'm given the all-clear to train and punch again, I'll be working on the new date for the fight."
Chisora, who was keen to avenge his defeat to Fury on a unanimous points decision three years ago, added: "I was in fantastic shape and had a great training camp, probably the best so far in my career and was looking forward to getting revenge.”
Promoter Frank Warren added: "Everybody involved in the fight worked hard to get it on and, for this to happen on the final week, is a big disappointment to everyone.
"There's no way that Dereck could fight with his hand fractured and there's no way I would let him get into the ring and fight with an injury like that.
"Obviously, you've got to feel for Tyson who, through no fault of his own, has been hit hard by this postponement after all the training he has put in.
"It's a big heavyweight fight with a lot at stake for both fighters and we're working hard to get a new date confirmed."
However, the show will still go ahead with Billy Joe Saunders taking on Emanuele Blandamura for the vacant European middleweight title.
Former two-time world title challenger Tony Thompson (39-5, 26 KOs) has volunteered to step in and replace the injured Dereck Chisora to fight Tyson Fury (22-0, 16 KOs) this Saturday night at the Phones 4 U Arena in Manchester, UK.
Chisora suffered a fractured hand on his final day of sparring to get ready for the Fury rematch. Obviously it’s just a bad luck thing for the 30-year-old Chisora, but doesn’t change the fact that Fury has wasted months of training and is without a payday fight on Saturday.
Thompson said on his twitter “@tyson_Fury I’LL FIGHT YOU THIS SATURDAY, FOOL!”
The question would Fury and his promoter be interested in taking the fight against the 42-year-old, 6’5” Thompson? We saw that Thompson did to another highly hyped heavyweight in David Price last year in knocking him out twice, putting his career on skid row.
Awesome! Thompson is a class act, would arguably be an even better fight. Fury has slagged him for a while so hopefully he accepts but I doubt it.
