The duo clash at Manchester's Phones 4U arena on July 26, with the prize for the winner a world-title shot at Wladimir Klitschko.
Chisora has won his last five fights since losing to David Haye at West Ham in 2012, picking up the WBO and World Boxing Association International championships in the process.
Fury's own fight with Haye was cancelled after the latter was cut during sparring but Chisora dismissed concerns over his fitness after a slight injury kept him out of the gym this week.
"I'm not going to lie, I have got a problem with my hamstring which is why I haven't been in the gym," said the 30-year-old Londoner.
"Everything is going well for me, the family is healthy, everything is great and I have got this big fight in three months. It is just around the corner and I'm looking forward to it.
"Fury doesn't worry me. We know he swings a lot when he is in a panic. He has progressed and his jab is amazing, that is one of the keys for us but we have a better jab than him."
Chisora reckons he has been in three of the biggest British fights of recent years, facing Robert Helenius in Finland before taking on Vitali Klitschko and Haye - with the Fury fight rounding out four huge bouts.
But, as well a loss to Fury at Wembley Arena in 2011, Chisora lost all three of those fights and acknowledges he needs to be successful this time around.
"The last four fights have been big," he said. "Finland, Germany, David Haye and this one - I'm excited. Right now we are pushing on, it is a thin line and it is a must-win fight for us. That is how we see it.
"We are already in training, we are plodding along and we are in it now. I will be doing plenty of sparring and that starts on Tuesday."
