Tyson Fury erupted at today’s press conference in Manchester with rival Dereck Chisora as the volatile heavyweights came face-to-face in the city where the big grudge fight will take place.

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

Tyson Fury-Dereck Chisora II official for July 26th in Manchester

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.

Fury sees himself easily beat Chisora this Summer

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

Del Boy en route for chance to avenge loss against Fury in summer showdown

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

Tyson Fury tips-in at a heavy 274-pounds for clash with Joey Abell!

The weights are in for tomorrow’s heavyweight doubleheader in London, and the biggest shock/newsworthy item is the poundage Tyson Fury came in at.

Fury tipped-in at 274-pounds, some twenty pounds heavier than for his last fight, while his opponent Joey Abell came in at 241-pounds. Fury did not remove his shirt while weighing in.

In the chief support, Dereck Chisora, who has battled weight problems himself in the past, came in at a solid 238-pounds. His rival, Kevin Johnson, who is aiming to score the upset and ruin plans for a Chisora-Fury rematch in the summer, tipped-in at 240-pounds.

So, the Fury fight will attract most headlines and unbeaten Tyson’s weight has already done so. For those fans who like to bet on the underdog, maybe Abell is a fighter worth betting on. Continue reading
