Chisora under the impression Fury will fight him again

Derek Chisora Tyson FuryBy William Mackay: Former British and Commonwealth heavyweight champion Dereck Chisora (14-1, 9 KO’s) thinks that Tyson Fury (15-0, 10 KO’s) will be facing him again in the near future to give him a chance to redeem himself. Chisora lost his two domestic level titles when he came into the Fury fight last weekend weighing a heft 261 pounds and looking more than a little flabby.

The extra weight appeared to hurt Chisora, as he looked tired after only the 2nd round and spent the majority of the fight only rarely throwing punches. In contrast to some of his other fights where Chisora was a tireless worker, he looked like he didn’t train properly for the fight.

However, the chances of Chisora getting a rematch with Fury are remote at best. Fury is moving on to bigger and better things starting with a fight against Martin Rogan for the Irish heavyweight title. Following that, Fury will either fight for a world title against IBF/WBA/WBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko or will go after the European Boxing Union (EBU) belt against title holder Alexander Dimitrenko. All of those options are much more attractive than going backwards and taking on Chisora again.

Chisora said this on his twitter page: “The best fighter won on the night. I don’t want to take anything away from him. There will be a rematch soon.”

I think someone needs to tell Fury that, because he’s not even thinking about Chisora. That’s old news for Fury. The better money fights are in the future on the world level, not going backwards to beat up on Chisora again. What Chisora needs to do is going into an immediate training camp and try to whittle of 30 pounds of fat and then come back at 230 against someone decent. If he looks good in that fight, he needs to target someone like John McDermott and then work his way up to David Price. Chisora should forget about Fury. He had his chance and blew it by coming into the fight way too heavy.
