Chisora and Fury set for July fight in Manchester

DERECK CHISORA will get the chance to put the record straight against Tyson Fury in July when the pair meet for the second time after the Mancunian beat the Londoner in their previous match on points.

The July 26 clash, which will be a world title eliminator, is scheduled to go ahead at the Phones 4U Arena in Manchester, according to boxing promoter Frank Warren, who has been talking up a fight between the pair for a while now.

Fury claimed victory over Chirosa in their 2011 fight, but it appears the 30-year-old is better shape and condition to get revenge over his northern foe this time around.

Whoever wins in Manchester will have the right to challenge Wladimir Klitschko, who holds the IBF, WBA and WBO heavyweight titles.

Speaking to Talksport, Chisora said: “Tyson has got one over me and he thinks he's the greatest fighter in Great Britain, but he's not. He hasn't fought any proper fighters, he's only been fighting cab drivers.”

Fury, 25, laughed off his rival’s jibe and added: “Chisora could be one of those cab drivers because I've already beaten him once. We're the best heavyweights in Britain and it will prove who should take on Klitschko.

“Chisora is nothing more than a glorified journeyman. I'm going to show you how much of a bum he is”.
