Tyson Fury IS still hoping to fight on Saturday, Peter Fury says he has a short list of names

Tyson Fury, understandably angry and frustrated over his fight with Dereck Chisora, set for this Saturday, falling through, still wants to box on July 26th. After having whipped himself into obviously good fighting shape, Fury – who has, amazingly, seen three of his last four bouts fall apart due to injuries suffered by his opponent – is looking for a short notice replacement.

It’s not clear yet whether he will actually fight, but Team-Fury obviously want to see action. Speaking exclusively to The Morecambe Visitor, Peter Fury said there is a short list of possible opponents who could be brought in with just four days to go.

But one man who will not be getting the call is 42-year-old American southpaw Tony Thompson, who Tweeted how he would take the fight. Continue reading

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

Don Charles: “This Time Tyson Fury Won’t Get Up”

Of the four losses that soil European heavyweight champion Dereck Chisora’s 24 fight ring slate, none grate more with Team Del Boy than the concession of his British and Commonwealth titles to Tyson Fury at Wembley Arena three years back.

That night the man from Finchley turned up for duty sporting a soft midriff and even softer psyche and, despite sporadic successes, he was comprehensively schooled over 12 rounds.

All concerned concede that, that shambolic evening, it was an imposter of the rumbling, rugged ring warrior who’d gone to war 14 times before, and in nine starts since. Continue reading

Tyson Fury: Chisora Will Be Like A Bug On Windscreen

Tyson Fury is pushing himself to the physical limits as he prepares for his showdown with rival Dereck Chisora on Saturday 26th July at the Phones 4 U Arena in Manchester.

The Manchester giant has been pushing a three and half ton tractor at his Bolton training camp to build up his strength and power to meet Chisora head-on in the biggest heavyweight grudge match in recent years.

Fury, 25, who inflicted the first defeat to Chisora’s record in July 2011, is not taking any for granted this time around and is preparing even harder with so much on the line in the crucial rematch. Continue reading
