Chisora told to face Fury

Chisora: Defending champion

Also see

Dereck Chisora could be poised to defend his British and Commonwealth titles against Tyson Fury after the British Boxing Board of Control ordered purse bids.

Chisora was twice lined up to fight IBF and WBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko but the Ukrainian dropped out on both occasions through injury, and has now agreed to take on David Haye.

The BBBC has now mandated the undefeated Fury to challenge for Chisora's titles with bids to be submitted by noon on April 13, and the fight to take place by the end of July.

And, true to form, the hitherto untested Fury has vowed to take Chisora's belts in just his 15th contest.

"I'm going to strip the title away from him along with the zero on his record," he said.

"Can't wait for this fight, it's been a long time in the making, but one thing is for sure, it's not going to take me as long to finish him off.

"Expect another brutal knock out delivered from this 22 year old."

Chisora has made just a solitary defence of the British title he won from Danny Williams last May, beating then-Commonwealth champion Sam Sexton with an impressive stoppage win.

This is incredible. Chisora is a very unlucky guy...He was about to fight for a World Title...now he is fighting the best pub brawler in the UK!!! Fury will be jumping at this opportunity...why not. However THIS BOUT WILL BE OVER IN 2-3 ROUNDS...Chisora is a sound guy with good boxing ability. 4 rounds stoppage. He can box dont let the puppy fat tinker your thinking.

I hope Chisora takes all that anger and frustration from the Klitschko debacle and knocks Fury clean out. He's a cut above him and all the other prospective heavyweights out there. Would love to see him fight David Price further down the line though.

Dont really like either of these fighters and theyre both incredibly arrogant if they think they are anywhere near a level where they could even challenge David Haye. Fury isnt yet good enough and he seems slower and less fit than Chisora. I think Chisora should win this fight fairly comfortably, and you'd hope he would considering he is good enough for Klitschko to offer him a world title fight.

I cannot wait until this fight takes place! two very vocal and very promising fighters with very attacking styles- should be a corker! looks like this will be another great year for british boxing with this and DeGale/ Groves also

Good Luck to Fury. He has already shown considerable improvement under Emmanuel Steward and is looking impressive... and he's stil only 22.
