Chisora vs. Fury II

Fury: I’d knock out Chisora and Wach on the same night

Heavyweight destroyer Tyson Fury says that he could knock out Dereck Chisora and his sparring partner Mariusz Wach on the same night.

The Manchester giant was enraged after Polish star Wach, Chisora’s chief sparring partner, said yesterday that the Finchley banger could knock out Fury early when they clash at the Phones 4 U Arena on Saturday 26th July.

Chisora and Fury collide in the biggest domestic heavyweight rematch in recent years with the winner securing the WBO number one spot to world champion Wladimir Klitschko, plus the Vacant British title and Chisora’s European title are on the line. Continue reading

Can Kevin Johnson throw a wrench in the plans for a Fury vs Chisora rematch stadium fight?

This Saturday night from the Copper Box Arena in London Dereck Chisora and Tyson Fury will be featured in stay busy fights on Box Nation.

Ok so maybe that’s not how long time U.K. promoter Frank Warren would want it phrased but that’s exactly what this card is and for those who are hardcore enough (or just bored) it will be televised here in the states by Intergrated Sports with an asking price starting at 24.99.

I can hardly blame any boxing fan for not wanting to put his or hers hard earned duckets down for this PPV.

It’s worth mentioning that in the past Intergrated Sports have at least tried to put on entertaining undercard fights to make up for a non pay per view worthy main event or co-features in this case. Continue reading

Peter Fury: ‘Expect the rematch between Tyson and ‘Del Boy’ to be a proper old fashioned ‘straightener’ ’

At the ripe old age of 45, Peter Fury suddenly finds himself as one of the brightest emerging trainers in British boxing.

Born into one of the nation’s most notorious traveling families, the Wakefield born ex pro first learned to fight on the caravan sites in the north of England.

Hugely successful in business, he has latterly been carving a formidable reputation as the man who masterminded his heavyweight son Hughie to the World Youth title in 2012 and who transformed his nephew Tyson Fury from a playboy pug into a hardened world grade operator.

Remaining tickets for Rock The Box III, priced from £40 are available from Eventim on 0844 249 1000 or online at eventim.co.uk

The show will be televised live and exclusive in the UK on BoxNation (Sky Ch. 437/Virgin Ch. 546) and on Sky HD Ch 449. Join at www.boxnation.com Continue reading

Chisora expects to KO Johnson; Fury with tough task against Abell

LONDON (Feb. 13) – Dereck Chisora is adamant that he will knockout American motormouth Kevin Johnson when the pair clash this weekend.

The heavyweights came face-to-face at Thursday’s press conference ahead of their showdown at the Copper Box Arena, live on BoxNation, this Saturday night.

British banger Chisora goes into the fight with a lot on the line as he eyes a summer blockbuster with Tyson Fury and has vowed to blast his way past the brash talking Johnson on route to that goal.

“I’ve watched a few of Johnson’s fights,” said Chisora. “The way I fight and the way he fights is totally different. I’m looking for a knockout so he can run and run but there’s going to be pressure on him. I’m going to go out there looking for him and I’m going to hurt him basically,” he said. Continue reading

Chisora vs. Fury II possible for June in heavyweight eliminator

chisora2A rematch between Dereck Chisora (19-4, 13 KO’s) and Tyson Fury (21-0, 15 KO’s) is being talked about for June of this year in a potential heavyweight title eliminator bout, according to Chisora’s promoter Frank Warren. He’s interested in setting up a second fight between Chisora and Fury and putting it in a large football stadium for the Summer, provided that both of them win their perspective fights on February 15th at the Copper Box Arena in London, UK.

Both guys are fighting on the card in separate fights. For Fury, it’s probably not a big deal, because he’s expected to be matched softly against a weak opponent in a tune-up bout to get some of the cobwebs off after sitting idle for 8 months in trying to get fights against David Haye.
