Dereck Chisora: Tyson Fury is an idiot, I’ll destroy him!

Phil Jay 21/03/2014

European heavyweight champion Dereck Chisora is still contemplating what he witnessed this week as forthcoming opponent Tyson Fury literally ‘flipped’ out at their Manchester press conference.

‘Del Boy’ was expecting to participate in another media event much like their earlier one held in London last Monday, although Fury was having non of it and proceeded to make his own statement by throwing furniture and storming out.

Chisora, 30, kept calm, to his credit, and continued with his pre-fight obligations.

The WBC number seven ranked contender now sees Fury’s antics as something he can work to his favour when the pair collide once more on July 26 at the Phones 4U Arena.

“This guy is an idiot,” stated Chisora once the dust had settled on Friday.”

“I’ll let my fists do the talking and I’ll destroy Fury in just the same style you see now. Cool, calm and collected.”

The first time the pair met in 2011, Chisora was going through a difficult period in his personal life and came to the ring grossly overweight for a busy fight that was ultimately too much for him in that kind of state.

Currently in the form and shape of his career, the Finchley man is widely expected to give the 25 year-old much more a run for his money, especially considering the fact that Fury himself came in at a career high 277lbs for his last fight.

Fury spent ten long months out of action having been messed around by injuries to David Haye, not one but twice, and the frustration is obviously showing after his latest public outburst.
