Chisora and Fury collide in a Final Eliminator for the WBO World Heavyweight title, with the Vacant British title on the line and also Chisora’s European belt, at the Phones 4 U Arena on Saturday 26th July.
Both met head-to-head on Monday in London where they engaged in a war of words, but if today’s events are anything to go by, the big summer showdown could be the most explosive all-British heavyweight scrap in recent years.
Londoner Chisora kept Fury waiting on the top table turning up well after the official start time and casually strolling in which, no doubt, infuriated the Manchester giant. Continue reading

It has just been made official how British heavyweights Tyson Fury and Dereck Chisora will meet in a rematch of their 2011 clash on July 26th. The rematch, which will be an official WBO final eliminator, will take place in Manchester at The Phones 4U Arena.
BoxNation TV channel in the UK will show the fight live.
25-year-old Fury, unbeaten at 22-0(16) out-pointed 30-year-old Chisora, 20-4(13) three years ago, but Chisora was carrying excess weight and “Del Boy” has promised he will be in tip-top shape this time. Both men want a shot at Wladimir Klitschko and a win on July 26th will take either man a big step closer to that.
Fury-Chisora II has been dubbed “The Fight for The Right.” Continue reading
After losing the biggest fight of his career to Wladimir Klitschko, Russia’s Alexander Povetkin vowed to come back stronger than ever before, but not until he takes time off to recover physically as well as mentally.
It appears as though he has rested enough. According to recent information, Povetkin’s next foe will be none other than Derek Chisora, who is coming off of a unanimous decision victory against Kevin Johnson. Continue reading
Heavyweight Tyson Fury (22-0, 16 KO’s) isn’t worried in the least about the new and improved Dereck Chisora (20-4, 13 KO’s) now that he’s shed 15-20 lbs of fat and is fighting at a leaner and meaner weight for him. Chisora and Fury are heading towards a Summer clash in the UK, which will likely be a WBO heavyweight eliminator bout. Fury feels that he’s going to dominate Chisora just like he did three years ago when they fought in 2011. Fury won the fight by a lopsided 12 round decision over a much fatter 260 lb. Chisora.
Chisora and Fury fought on the same card last night at the Copper Box Arena in London, UK. A heavy-looking Fury dispatched Joey Abell in the 4th round, whereas Chisora battled to a 12 round unanimous over Kevin Johnson. Neither of them looked anywhere near the class of IBF/IBO/WBA/WBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko in the skills department. Continue reading
The heavyweight division was the particular focal point of the ‘Rock the Box III’ event staged last night, Feb’ 15th, at the Copper Box Arena, London.
The card was stacked with boxers from differing career levels, with some names only known by a handful of loyal fans and others who will be recognised by the global boxing community, but the two main events were heavyweight bouts that could ultimately make an impact on the division.
To write up the recent state of affairs of the heavyweight division would be merely an attempt to reword the many texts to have been already produced on the matter. The bottom line is: it can only get better. Continue reading
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
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
