Peter Fury: Tyson will stop Chisora, take Price fight if no world title

Phil Jay 09/05/2014

Tyson Fury is being tipped to put on a punishing performance second time around against Dereck Chisora as trainer and uncle Peter is predicting a stoppage win on July 26 during the second half of the fight.

Peter, who recently began full training to prepare Fury for his rematch with Chisora in Manchester, is backing the former Irish champion to make easier work of ‘Del Boy’ after his points win last time the two met in 2011.

“Tyson came back to full training on the 5th of May and he looks good,” Fury told World Boxing News.

“He has kept in shape and is weighing at his fighting weight or very close to it at the start of camp.

“This time, I think the fight with Chisroa not go the distance. Tyson is a lot better than he was in the first fight and I expect him to stop chisora in the mid to late rounds.”

A world title fight has been a carrot dangling in front of undefeated Fury for almost a year now, but with the IBF recently stipulating that four-belt champion Wladimir Klitschko must face Kubrat Pulev in his next fight, there could be more of a wait than first thought.

This weekend, Bermane Stiverne and Chris Arreola square-off for the WBC title vacated by the now-retired Vitali Klitschko, although Deontay Wilder is thought to be first up to challenge the winner later in the year.

That would leave 25 year-old Fury potentially treading water for another year and Peter believes there could be a case to rekindle a fight with domestic rival David Price if the Liverpudlian can keep winning under his new promoters Sauerland.

“The fight with Price was there for a while and then talk stopped when he lost twice to Tony Thompson,” explained Fury.

“Now that he is back on track on knocking people out again, I am sure we could agree something If the money is right.

“If there are no world titles on offer then why not?”
