Chisora: I’ll knock out Fury in the first round

Dereck Chisora turned up the heat on Tyson Fury by telling his fierce rival he’ll be knocked out inside a round at the Phones 4 U Arena in Manchester on Saturday 26th July

Londoner Chisora, the European Heavyweight Champion, defends his title against Fury with the Vacant British title up for grabs and the fight is also a Final Eliminator for the WBO World Heavyweight Championship for the right to face reigning king Wladimir Klitschko.

The 29-year-old was at the talkSPORT studio yesterday on the popular Hawksbee and Jacobs show and said he’s looking to do a job on undefeated Fury, even though the Manchester fighter has already beaten Chisora in July 2011.

“I’m not going to cry over spilt milk,” He said.

“I’m looking to the future now. He’s going to get knocked out.

“He said he’s going to knock me out in round five but he’s going to get knocked out in the first round.”
