Saturday 3rd December is set to be another exciting night of heavyweight boxing as Derek Chisora faces Tyson Fury for the third time at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
After negotiations fell through for ‘The Gypsy King’ to fight Anthony Joshua, Chisora has stepped up in an attempt to give Fury a gruelling contest.
‘War’ gave his prediction on the match up in an interview with Queensberry Promotions as he looks to be the first man who can stop the tough WBC heavyweight world champion, despite falling short on two previous occasions.
Whether he’s recognising that Fury it too skilful to be outpointed, or he’s having a bit of a dig at judges’ ability to be swayed in favour of a champion, Chisora says he needs to end proceedings early.
“Great fight, I have to win by knockout.”
Although Chisora has had a few losses in his career and been knocked out himself, he does hold 23 KOs to his name from 33 wins, proving he is capable and could have the power to cause a shock defeat over ‘The Gypsy King’.
His last fight against Kubrat Pulev, he defeated the Bulgarian via a points decision win. It represented Chisora’s first win in his last four fights – a fact that led many fans to moan at the matchmaking.
Those same fans will question whether ‘WAR’ Chisora is the man who can keep Fury down after Deontay Wilder failed to do so over their trilogy of fights. ‘The Bronze Bomber’s punches have been recognised by some as the hardest in the sport.
With ‘The Gypsy King’ on a knockout streak of his own, it could be a tough night for ‘Del Boy’, who may be in danger of opening himself up to potentially being stopped himself.
