Today we got the announcement that we all knew was iminent, as soon as Tyson Fury and Mick Hennessy joined forces with Frank Warren and boxnation, it was a sure thing we would see him step in the ring with Dereck Chisora. July 26th will see both men step in the ring at Manchesters echo arena, with both men already wanting to pick up where they left off the last time they fought.
It was an early win on Furys record, but I think even he will admit Chisora was never at his best. The press conference today gave us another insight to how both men will approach this fight but with a very unusual undertone of respect. It was great to see both trainers offering words of praise for their fellow fighters but also making it very clear the rough ride they have had over the last couple of years to reach this point. With Fury having had 2 fights with David Haye dropped after Haye picking up his injury leaving a year on his career development stumped, and Chisora having a fight with Wladimir snatched away at the last minute.
Thevfact still remains, both men still have very little time for each other, and the positive comments created a great gloss over for their true feelings. Both man has everything to gain here with a garunteed shot at Wladimir Klitchkos WBO title, should the Ukrainian chose to neglet this offer he will be stripped of his title, which I will believe when I see.
On another note, a worthy mention to Frank Warren who is doing a great job of the development of his British fighters, I exclude Nathan Cleverly here. He has managed to put together a Heavyweight fight that should gather considerable interest, especially after the farcical fight between aparent world champion contender Deonty Wilder and no hoper Malik Scott. This fight is still to early to call for me, with Fury being the favorite in most peoples eyes, its hard to forget the caliber of fighters Chisora has stepped in with.
