Tyson Fury calls for Bermane Stiverne world title fight next

Tyson Fury (22-0, 16 KO’s) says that Dereck Chisora burned his bridges with him pulling out of his scheduled fight with him this Saturday night in Manchester, and that he’s never going to attempt to put together another fight with the 30-year-old Chisora again. Fury says he’s moved on with his career and that Chisora lost his chance.

Fury will be facing replacement opponent #8 IBF, #9 WBA Alexander Ustinov (29-1, 21 KOs) this Saturday night in what Fury calls a “50-50 fight” at the Phones 4U Arena.

If Fury beats Ustinov, he wants to then leap frog over Deontay Wilder to challenge WBC heavyweight champion Bermane Stiverne for his title.

Fury is currently ranked #10 by the WBC, so the only way Stiverne could fight him is if it were to be an optional title defense, which he currently doesn’t have available to him given that he was recently ordered by the WBC to fight Deontay next. “As far as I’m concerned Dereck Chisora is history – finished,” Fury said, “After I’ve done with this lummox [Ustinov] in front of me, I want Bermane Stiverne for the WBC title. I’m not interested in Dereck Chisora, he ain’t got enough credibility to lace my boots up, never mind step in the same ring. He’s a s***house who dropped his b******s in training. Chisora is another David Haye – a wannabe. A wannabe Tyson Fury opponent in hindsight who realizes the daunting task ahead and decides I’ll live to fight another day rather than get annihilated.”
