Tyson Fury has decided to turn a blind eye to Saturday’s heavyweight grudge match between one-time world champion David Haye and former opponent Dereck Chisora as the pair meet at Upton Park in London.
The 24 year-old is ready to step up to the top level of the division following a 19-fight unbeaten run and after previously calling out the winner, is no longer prepared to entertain a fight with either and won’t be tuning in to BoxNation.
“I won’t be watching Haye v Chisora,” Fury told World Boxing News.
“They are has-been fighters. It is just two failures attempting to seek glory at world level.
“While Haye and Chisora are fighting a meaningless fight to fill their pockets and deceive the public, I will be taking on world class fighters,” he added
6ft 9ins Fury is eyeing the likes of Tomasz Adamek and Alexander Povetkin on his way to a shot at Wladimir Klitschko and has a warning for the elite fighters in the division as he seeks out his first world-class challenge.
“I am going to smash them all in,” said Fury. I am prepared to die for my dream.”
