British heavyweight Tyson Fury (22-0, 16 KOs) still hasn’t taken care of Dereck Chisora in their rematch next month and yet Fury already has his eyes set on who he wants to fight next. Fury says he wants to fight undefeated and untested British prospect Anthony Joshua (9-0, 9 KOs) so that he can prove himself against him.
Never mind the fact that a fight between Fury and Joshua would make no sense at this point considering that Joshua isn’t a belt holder, and has never beaten anyone remotely talented. Fury still feels like it’s a fight that he wants. Continue reading
Dereck Chisora promised to KO heavyweight rival Tyson Fury once and for all when they clash at the ExCeL London on Saturday 29th November, but Fury had no reply!
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.
Chisora and Fury clash with the European, Vacant British and Eliminator for the WBO World Championship all on the line in the biggest all-British heavyweight clash in recent years, live and exclusive on BoxNation. Continue reading
Tyson Fury’s path has been cleared for his showdown with rival Dereck Chisora after he was fined £15,000 today by the British Boxing Board of Control on a charge of misconduct.
The pair will now finally settle unfinished business at the ExCeL London in a WBO World Heavyweight title eliminator with the European and Vacant British titles also on the line.
Promoter Frank Warren will hold a press conference on Monday 15th September in London (venue and time TBC) with Chisora and Fury in attendance with further details to follow shortly.
Heavyweights Dereck Chisora and Tyson Fury will settle their differences once and for all on Saturday 22nd November at the ExCeL London.
The bitter rivals have built up a lot of anger and frustration over the postponement of their fight last month and are now set to battle it out in an explosive battle for the European and Vacant British titles and a Final Eliminator for the WBO World Heavyweight Championship.
Chisora v Fury will be live and exclusive on BoxNation (Sky Ch. 437/HD 490 and Virgin Ch. 546). Join at www.boxnation.com Continue reading
RICKY HATTON says his heavyweight charge Lucas “Big Daddy” Browne could fight Britain’s Tyson Fury…but it’s unlikely to happen until one of them has a world title.
Despite being well-acquainted outside of the ring, Browne and Fury have talked about facing each other in the past and Hatton believes a clash is inevitable providing that they both keep winning.
Browne, 20-0 (18 KOs), faces Ukraine’s unbeaten Andriy Rudenko in Wolverhampton on Friday night with the WBA International and WBC EPBC crowns on the line.
And a victory should put the hammer-fisted Aussie in touching distance of a showdown with either Bermane Stiverne or Ruslan Chagaev.
Who’d be a boxing promoter!
This time last week, fight fans, especially British heavyweight fight fans, were looking forward to the scheduled and quite long since announced return meeting between colourful characters (an understatement) Tyson Fury and Dereck Chisora. The fight was given an extra element of spice thanks to Fury’s shenanigans at the London, open to the public, press conference.
Fury was on his A-game when it came to trash talking and being as funny as he was crude. The BBB of C didn’t enjoy what he did, or had to say (especially the latter), but some fans sure did.
Tyson Fury has withdrawn from his heavyweight contest tonight against Alexander Ustinov after his uncle and first trainer, Hughie, has been taken seriously ill into hospital.
The multi-title show will still go ahead with Billy Joe Saunders challenging for the Vacant European Middleweight title against Emanuele Blandamura, Liam Smith defends his British Light-Middleweight title against Jason Welborn; Terry Flanagan challenges Martin Gethin for the Vacant British Lightweight Championship, and Jack Catterall face Nathan Brough for the Vacant Central Area Light-Welterweight Championship
Tyson Fury and Alexander Ustinov faced off during their weigh in for tomorrow nights eagerly awaited heavyweight clash this afternoon. Ustinov took to the scales tipping in at 20st 5oz while Fury came in almost two stone lighter at 18st 5 pounds
Ustinov, a cerebral looking individual, looked considerably slimmer than has been seen in previous bouts, still packing those immensely powerful arms and upper body. Fury, as promised, looked svelte, trim and athletic. His physique was a far cry from that which we saw against Joey Abell in his most recent bout. The crowd were fired up as the Manchester showman arrived, and in contrast to his press conference appearances Tyson seemed to really have his game face on as the two went head to head. Tyson announced he’s ‘going to inflict pain on you.’ Ustinov simply smiled off the trash talk. Continue reading
In a bout no one could have foreseen or predicted, this Saturday night boxing fans shall witness Tyson Fury attempt to maintain his lofty world ranking against the dangerous fringe contender Alexander Ustinov. The collapse of the Dereck Chisora rematch renders any discussion of him, or Fury’s attitude to him a moot point. What fight fans need to consider is what this bout has the potential to tell us about Fury’s current standing in the division, and whether or not it shall serve as a good indicator of Fury’s ability to mentally reign himself in after massive disappointment.
Whether loved or loathed the Mancunian giant inspires opinion among all those who watch him fight, or even just hear him speak. Many including this author see massive potential on a world level in Tyson Fury; however, large bastions of boxing’s faithful will be very quick to arrogantly dismiss him as an overblown hype job. The polarizing views fans have about Tyson Fury are not quite as easy to understand as one might think.
