Tyson Fury not impressed with Dereck Chisora ahead of possible summer rematch

Scott Heavey

Tyson Fury had been told that Dereck Chisora has improved since 2011, but the always-opinionated fighter didn't see any evidence of that on Saturday.

Tyson Fury and Dereck Chisora both won as anticipated yesterday in London, but Fury wasn't impressed by Chisora, who defeated Kevin Johnson over 12 rounds after an out-of-shape Fury disposed of Joey Abell in four.

Fury (22-0, 16 KO) defeated Chisora (20-4, 13 KO) back in 2011, when Chisora was the one who showed up in poor condition, routing "Del Boy" and going the distance. Fury says that if and when they do rematch this summer, he'll score the knockout:

"Listen, I was going to sleep in that chair, to be honest. They were trying their best, God bless them, but they're not world-class fighters.

"It was more like an eight-round fight on some undercard somewhere, with two lemons who could fight inside a phonebox. There was no skill, no boxing, no jabs, it was a brawl with two blumps going at each other.

"They say Chisora's improved, he looks the same one-paced fighter to me. He's getting knocked out next time, he's no threat to me at all. It's a foregone conclusion and it won't go the distance."

Do you think Fury will stop Chisora this summer? Is Chisora a serious threat to Fury?
