Fury Wants Chisora Stripped

Tyson Fury wants British heavyweight titlist Dereck Chisora stripped by the BBBC. Chisora is fighting IBF/WBO/IBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klistchko on April 30.

“I’ve been mandatory challenger for six or seven months and I just want to fight for the Britiosh title because this is holding up my career and he will drag it into next year. Chisora is fighting Klitschko for the world title but he’s not even the best fighter in this country….I’m not ready for Klitschko at the moment and neither is Chisora, who isn’t ready for it by a mile.”

Fury Trains With Wladimir Klitschko

Getting ready for his February 19th fight against a TBA opponent he spent time training with his new trainer and current WBO, IBF, IBO, and Ring heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko at his training camp in Austria.

“It was a pleasure and a great honour spending time in camp with Wladimir Klitschko, it’s given me a great deal of confidence training alongside such a champion, he is definitely a fighter who is at the top of his game.”

“Wlad and his brother, Vitali are both modern day heavyweights who are not only very talented and athletic but also big heavyweights.”

“There has been all sorts of speculation flying around why David Haye isn’t fighting one of the Klitschko brothers, but in my honest opinion I believe it’s because David isn’t big enough to deal with the likes of Wladimir or Vitali.”

“But I’m going to change all that in the future, not only am I talented, athletic, have the determination and toughness but also I’ve I got youth on my side, plus I’m also bigger than the likes of the Klitschko brothers as you can see by the photo.”

“When i realise my dream and become unified heavyweight champion of the world I will avoid no one, I’m sure I will be a dominant heavyweight champion just like Lennox Lewis, only I will be representing the UK and Ireland.”

“I’m really looking forward to my next fight which is at the prestigious Wembley Arena on Saturday 19th February, this is going to be a big year for me, I’m going to give boxing the shot in the arm it needs.”

Kevin Johnson Interested In Fighting Fury

Since the planed fight with Francois Botha fell through for February 19th and Tyson Fury is still looking for an opponent, American Kevin Johnson says he would step up to the plate.  Kevin Johnson (24-1-1) is best known for his 12 round unanimous decision loss to current WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko in 2009.  Here's what the "Kingpin" had to say,

“Now that the BBBC has rejected Francois Botha as an opponent for you, I want to be the first to offer myself as an opponent for you. I’ve been hearing a lot of noise coming out of the UK about how tough you are how you are the future of boxing. So I say step up and prove yourself like a man. I can come to you on this short notice and we can get it on. Stop hiding behind your promoter and stop fighting those stiffs. Let’s see if you can earn yourself a title fight by beating the ‘Kingpin’ Kevin Johnson. I got my gloves, my trunks and my passport and I’m ready to travel. If you are scared, I understand. Just admit it and I’ll move on.”

Steward Thinks Fury Will Be The Next Great Heavyweight

Famous boxing trainer Emanuel Steward who now trains Tyson Fury gave Fury some high praises lately.  Steward said, 

“Tyson Fury will be the next superstar dominant heavyweight much along the lines as Lennox Lewis and Wladimir Klitschko. The way that he’s progressing now, I believe he can maybe be the complete package in the heavyweight division because of his talent. I think he can be a tremendous shot in the arm for the heavyweight division in the future.”

He did show noticeable improvements against his last opponent Zach Page, and at only 22 years old has alot of room for development....

Fury vs TBA February 19th

Tyson Fury will return to face an opponent yet to be named on February 19th at the Wembley Arena in London. There were talks of him fighting 42 year old Francois Botha originally but the British Boxing Board of Control blocked his proposed fight. There is also talks that he may face former Mike Tyson conqueror Kevin McBride. Matt Skelton, the former British, Commonwealth and European heavyweight champion, has been mooted as a possible opponent. Also, Osborne Machiman, who boxes David Price in a Commonwealth heavyweight title eliminator in Brentwood on Saturday, February 5 could be someone he could step in for if he decides to not fight David Price.

Price and Fury have history. He boxed Price in the North West final of the ABA championship on November, 2006 and was beaten on points. But as Fury points out, “I was 17 years old and had 12 amateur fights. He was Commonwealth Games gold medallist. A lot has changed since then.” “I’m willing to fight him again.”

Fury Quotes

** Regarding facing McBride

“I would like to get revenge for Mike."

“But I don’t see that any of the opponents that have been suggested are better than Botha.”

Uncle Hughie Quotes

*Fury's trainer

**On the Botha situation..

“Botha has boxed in world class and surely he’s a tougher opponent than John McDermott, who Tyson has boxed twice."

“We are surprised the Board have turned him down. There aren’t many heavyweights out there for Tyson to fight.”
