Tyson Fury Restrained By Tape, Chisora Vows Ko Win

The Manchester giant turned up at today’s head-to-head press conference with tape strapped over his mouth and “BBBofC?????” written on it – in reference to his £15,000 fine by the Board for misconduct at a previous press conference with Chisora – and vowed to stay silent until fight night.

Fury vs Ustinov this Saturday

Tyson Fury will face big-hitting Belarusian Alexander Ustinov – the 6ft 7½in, 22st, giant who Dereck Chisora broke his hand against in sparring – this Saturday (26th July) at the Phones 4 U Arena in Manchester, live and exclusive on BoxNation (Sky Ch. 437/HD 490 and Virgin Ch. 546).

Fury was left disappointed when Chisora withdrew from their fight yesterday after breaking his hand against Ustinov in their final sparring session, but promoter Frank Warren has moved quick to ensure all Fury’s hard training hasn’t gone to waste and secured him world ranked Ustinov.

From Minsk, the 6ft 7½in Ustinov has been at Chisora’s North London gym for the last two weeks helping him to prepare for Fury, but now finds himself the man in the opposite corner with the chance of causing a huge shock and inflicting the first loss on the Wilmslow giant’s record.

Tyson Fury cannot get a break! Third fight in a row off

As fight fans have most probably read by now, this Saturday’s WBO heavyweight title eliminator between British heavyweights Tyson Fury and Dereck Chisora is off, as Chisora suffered a fractured hand in his final day of sparring. This is bad news for all concerned, but it is especially unimaginably frustrating news for Fury and his whole team.

As Fury himself or the fans didn’t need reminding, this fight being off marks the THIRD time in a row the unbeaten giant has worked his ass off in training camp only with absolutely nothing to show for it. Twice Fury set up camp for a clash with David Haye, only for Haye to get himself injured ahead of both dates. Now, with a long training camp under his belt and a number of press conferences and other media duties fulfilled, Fury is sure to be, well, furious at his rematch with Chisora falling apart. What must be so annoying for Fury is the fact that all three of his scheduled bouts fell apart so close to the actual day of the fight. Continue reading

Peter Fury Interview: Tyson By Stoppage By Round 8

For the past two years, Peter Fury has used an iron fist to transform nephew Tyson from a playboy into a serious player in the upper echelons of heavyweight boxing.

The reformed con and ex-pro has drawn huge plaudits for developing both the frame and the brain of the outrageously gifted 6ft 9in traveler from Wilmslow.

‘Uncle Pete’ knows that a crushing repeat win over European champion Dereck Chisora at Manchester’s Phones 4u Arena on Saturday 26th July will almost certainly cement a challenge for one of the four major world heavyweight belts.

And despite the emphatic margins of victory in their first spat, Peter insists that his ward will arrive for the replay with ‘Del Boy’ in the best fettle, physically and psychologically, of his six year pro career. With Team Chisora promising likewise, we might just be served a battle for the annuls. Continue reading
