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.”
The outspoken Fury, who has recently been called out by unbeaten KO King Deontay Wilder ( a fight Fury says he has no doubts he would win, calling Wilder “a pussy”) has been calling out Klitschko for the longest time, even claiming Wladimir is afraid of him. If Fury can do a number on Chisora – and he has vowed to stop Chisora this time around – maybe the 6’9” giant will get his big chance. Or will Wilder beat him to it and get the chance to try and test Wladimir’s chin first?
The heavyweight division is, at last, entertaining and intriguing once again. With guys like Fury, Wilder, Bryant Jennings, Vyacheslav Glazkov and Chris Arreola and Bermane Stiverne, who meet in a May rematch, there are a number of good contenders out there for Klitschko.
