Chisora turns up the heat

As Dereck Chisora draws closer to his highly anticipated rematch with Tyson Fury on Saturday 26th July at the Phones 4 U Arena in Manchester the Londoner is in a confident mood insisting he will end the fight in one round.

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. Fury was the one making predictions last month insisting his opponent was the one getting knocked out. However while talking to Talksport Chisora said “I’m not going to cry over spilt milk, 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.”

The two men previously met back in 2011 with Fury continuing his unbeaten run by winning a unanimous decision. However Chisora looked in far worse physical shape then than he does now, and after a turbulent time in his career, he now looks far more focused and has since shared the ring with a higher calibre of fighter than Fury has (including his hard fought loss to Vitali Klitschko). So we could well be looking at a much tougher fight with both main aiming to prove they are the one to challenge the Klitschko dominance on the heavyweight scene.
