Tyson Fury tips Chisora to beat Haye...and slams David Price

Irish heavyweight champion Tyson Fury believes that Dereck Chisora will beat David Haye if the clash between the pair comes off. The charismatic giant also had a few choice words for British title challenger, David Price.

"Remember I told you first!" beamed Fury, who was ringside to support his Hennessy Sports team mate Kid Galahad last night.

"The reason that David Haye is coming back is to prove he's a man. To prove he has a pair of what's down there. He wasn't a man against Klitschko.

"And because he needs to prove he's a man, he's going to have to get involved in a tear up with Dereck Chisora."

Fury took Chisora's British and Commonwealth titles from him in July 2011 by way of a comfortable points victory.

"Getting involved with Dereck Chisora is the wrong thing to do - and Haye will lose."

Asked if he will be a keen observer of next week's British title clash between David Price and Sam Sexton - one of the two belts Fury gave up when terms couldn't be agreed for him to box Price - Fury was characteristically dismissive.

"I'll be abroad. And I wouldn't watch David Price anyway. He's a bum. He's domestic level and I'm number four in the world.

"If I boxed Price I would have lost my Channel 5 contract. We offered him £100,000 to box on the channel - and he turned it down. What does that tell you?

"He needs to grow a pair of balls."

Simon Barclay speaks to BoxRec News from Klitschko's Champ Camp

Heavyweight world champion Wladimir Klitschko is preparing to face Australian Alex Leapai on 26th April and as usual he has chosen the familiar surroundings of the Austrian Alps. Just hours after winning his professional debut at the Copper Box in London, 24-year old Corby cruiserweight Simon Barclay was on a plane to join up with him in what the Ukrainian calls 'Champ Camp'.

Fight Reports

Brentwood’s ‘Smokin’ Joe Mullender (6-1) got back on track with a close points win over Peckham’s Diego Burton (4-4-1) over ten rounds at the York Hall on Saturday. It was a belter of a fight on a slightly smaller than usual Goodwin bill, partly due to 'Flash' Ashley Sexton not making weight again (more on this later) and 'Big Dog' AJ Carter’s opponent, who reportedly turned up with Evo-Stick holding his mooey in place.
