By Robert Brizel, Head RCM Boxing Correspondent
Manchester, UK (July 21, 2014)– The British, European, and World Boxing Organization International heavyweight titles will be at stake in the most important bout of 15 which are scheduled on July 26, 2014, phones 4u Arena in Manchester, United Kingdom. Tyson Fury, 22-0, 16 knockouts, Wilmslow, England, will rematch against Dereck ‘Del Boy’ Chisora, 20-4, 13 knockouts in the 12 round main event for the british, European, and World Boxing Organization International regional heavyweight titles.
More recently, ‘Del Boy’ has feasted on a who’s who of the heavyweight division, beating former number one heavyweight contender Kevin Johnson (29-4-1) in 12 rounds, and knocking out Ondrej Pala (32-3), Edmund Gerber (23-1), Hector Avila (20-12-1), and Malik Scott (35-0-1). Three other 12 rounders and four 10 rounders will be also featured on the card, as well as former heavyweight contender Eddie Chambers, and rising middleweight prospect Chris Eubank Jr.
Tyson Fury versus Dereck Chisora II Final London Press Conference
Warning! Explicit language used
Del Boy’s principal concern is to avenge his decision loss to Fury at Wembley four years ago. Del Boy need not worry about the likes of Robert Helenius (inactive over a year due to due to contractual disputes), Dr. Vitali Klitschko (became a politician) and David Haye (inactive over two years). He will not be facing these warriors of the past anytime soon.
To win, Del Boy must correct his principal mistake in his previous war with Tyson Fury. Del Boy showed up at 261 pounds, nearly 17 pounds higher than his previous bout, and the heaviest of his professional career. Chisora was not effective in terms of movement and agility at such a high weight against a similar proportioned opponent. Fury fought Kevin Johnson this past February at 238 pounds and looked sharp. Ironically, Tyson Fury fought Joey Abel at a chunky 274 pounds in London this past February, and looked awkward against limited opposition. If Del Boy shows up lighter, and Fury shows up heavier, the outcome will indeed be influenced by the weight factor at the world class level of boxing.
British boxing fans must ask the question “Will Tyson Fury wind up like David Price did against Tony Thompson and lose his rematch with Del Boy?” David Price fights on, but his career prospects are bleak. Chisora, who made chopped liver of a 35-0 fighter recently, seeks to make similar mincemeat of Fury, who remains unable to keep his big mouth shut.
Fury’s behavior and outbursts at his recent press conference with Chisora remain under investigation by the British Boxing Board of Control (watch video press conference above).
Chisora, despite size and reach disparities, will get down to business right away, and inside on Tyson Fury and outpoint him, perhaps even knocking down and stopping him. Most certainly Chisora will outpointing Fury over 12 rounds if the fight goes the distance. Chisora has a better chance than Fury now, by virtue of a having a better line of experience. Fury’s fire may have desire, but it does not have tested and true opponents of note as Chisora has faced.
Besides fighting cruiserweight Steve Cunningham and surviving a knockdown in the second round, and decisioning shopworn Kevin Johnson, Fury has fought a collection of minnows and bums. Essentially, besides Del Boy, Fury has fought only a collection of limited heavyweight nobodies from Joey Abel and Vinny Maddalone, but no championship caliber opposition. Fury could fight somebody of substance, but like the American Deontay Wilder, has built his record on a slate of stiffs, which would not qualify for a world title bout against Dr. Wladimir Klitschko, Bermane Stiverne, Ruslan Chagaev or anybody else.
William Shakespeare, in Macbeth, Act 5, Scene 5, mentions the word ‘fury’. Shakespeare finishes the passage with ‘A poor player that struts and frets his hour upon the stage, and then is heard no more. It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.’ Indeed, Tyson Fury acted silly at the press conference for this rematch, speaking full of sound and Tyson Fury, but it meant nothing in the end.
For Del Boy, the July 26 opportunity for revenge with Fury will be sweet. Boxing fans, hold onto your seats. This bout is certain to end with a spectacular bang-one way or the other. Place your bets. Tyson Fury and Dereck Chisora have a one hundred thousand British Pound side bet with each other on which one of them will win this bout, which adds to the atmosphere of the circus.
