Dereck Chisora Sends Warning To Tyson Fury Over 'Disaster Rematch' With Deontay Wilder

Dereck Chisora Sends Warning To Tyson Fury Over 'Disaster Rematch' With Deontay Wilder

Dereck Chisora has warned fierce rival Tyson Fury to put some serious weight back on ahead of his hotly anticipated rematch with Deontay Wilder.

The Brit superstar, 31, picked up a hard-fought victory on points against Otto Wallin last month and weighed at his lightest since his sensational return to boxing.

Speaking ahead of his clash with David Price at the O2 Arena on 26th October, Chisora hailed Fury as the best heavyweight in the world.

But the 35-year-old believes that the 'Gypsy King' needs to change up his strategy ahead of the Wilder rematch.

"I said that, but after I saw his last fight, I think he needs to do more now because he stopped doing things that he was doing before," 'Del Boy' told SecondsOut.

"He's lost so much weight, and he doesn't have the power punches anymore that he had.

Fury received over 40 stitches for the two brutal cuts he sustained at the hands of Wallin, but he has ruled out delaying his clash with WBC champ Wilder.

According to the Brit, the rematch with the 'Bronze Bomber' is scheduled for 22nd February in Las Vegas.

The former unified heavyweight champ is currently involved in a WWE story angle with Braun Strowman and will have a match against him at Crown Jewel later this month.

When Chisora was asked about Fury's upcoming match with the 'Monster Among Men,' Chisora said: "It's the luck of the Irish, man.

"We both know that wrestling pays loads of money if you get it right. Since the '80s and '90s, I used to watch the WWF. But good luck to him. I don't have anything bad to say about Tyson Fury.

"He's doing this now, but I think he's doing this to build a profile for the fight with Deontay Wilder, which is a good thing."

Fury, who beat fellow Brit Chisora twice in the squared circle, is reportedly set to earn £12m for his part in Crown Jewel.

Wilder, 33, is scheduled to rematch Cuban star Luis Ortiz on 23rd November ahead of his second bout with Fury.
