Chisora and Fury to clash in WBO world title eliminator

Dereck Chisora (20-4-0) and Tyson Fury (22-0-0) will face-off in Manchester in July for the chance to fight Wladimir Klitschko for the WBO world title.

Fury, who was scheduled to fight David Haye twice before the fight was eventually called off, was the victor on points when the pair first met in 2011 and he is 1/2 to do so again when the pair clash at the Phones 4U Arena.

Chisora, who comes into the contest on the back of five straight wins, is 13/8 for revenge on his Mancunian opponent.

There has been plenty of bad blood between the pair in recent months with Del Boy questioning Fury’s unbeaten heavyweight record.

“Tyson has got one over me and he thinks he’s the greatest fighter in Great Britain, but he’s not,” said Chisora.

“He hasn’t fought any proper fighters, he’s only been fighting cab drivers.”

But Fury hit back at Chisora claiming the Briton is nothing more than a glorified journeyman.

“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,” said Fury.

“Chisora is nothing more than a glorified journeyman. I’m going to show you how much of a bum he is on 26 July.”

The winner of this contest will get a shot at IBF, WBA and WBO champion Klitschko but Deontay Wilder could also be a future opponent for the winner.

The unbeaten American, who has 31 victories all by knockout, beat fellow countryman Malik Scott to become the mandatory challenger for the WBC strap but he is also open to fighting the winner of Chisora and Fury.

The powerful 28-year-old is 1/4 with Ladbrokes to win the WBC world title after maneuvering himself into the mandatory position for that title, but Chisora or Fury could  possibly be standing in his way to glory.
