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."

Crolla V Murray

A lot of people consider the lightweight bout taking place in Manchester this weekend between Anthony Crolla (27-4-1) and John Murray (32-2) to be a very close call indeed. The contest, in UK's second biggest city on Easter Weekend, is for the WBO lightweight Inter-continental title, but the significance of the result means more than the marginal title as it will put them a step closer to a world title fight. Even if this isn't immediately forthcoming, the division is stacked in Britain, and can throw up some massive domestic scraps.

Last Friday at the Camden Centre, Morden super featherweight Craig Whyatt (7-1) liquidated Plymouth’s Ben Morrish (3-8-2) in the first round to bag the Masters Bronze super featherweight belt. This was scheduled for eight, but when Morrish tried to turn it into a brawl he quickly came off second best after Jeff Hinds halted proceedings following his third knockdown.
