‘He’s a folk hero’ – Tyson Fury reveals his kids are all Derek Chisora fans ahead of blockbuster world title fight

, ‘He’s a folk hero’ – Tyson Fury reveals his kids are all Derek Chisora fans ahead of blockbuster world title fight

TYSON FURY admits his Morecambe mansion might be full of Derek Chisora fans when they clash for a third time next week.

The 34-year-old WBC Gypsy King defends his crown against the 38-year-old he has already beaten twice at the Tottenham Stadium on December 3.

Derek Chisora will be hoping to cause a huge upset against Fury

And the undefeated father-of-six revealed Chisora’s fearless 33-12 record – and reputation for fighting the biggest and baddest men of his era – means all of his kids usually cheer for his rival.

The 6ft 9in showman said: “Everytime he fights I cheer for Derek, all my kids are Derek Chisora fans, they have all grown up watching him.

“It’s hard not to like him because, in this country, the man has become a folk hero.

“On December 3 it will probably p*** down – and everyone will get wet – but it will still be a great night.”

Fury outboxed Del Boy to a points win in 2011 and peppered him with digs in 2014 until he retired on his stool.

But since his first stoppage win over Deontay Wilder in 2020, Fury has become a power puncher who can flatten stars like the Bronze Bomber and Dillian Whyte.

And he admits that shootout style could play into the Zimbabwe-born brawler’s giant hands.

“I think it gives him a better chance,” he said. “Years ago I used to box behind my jab and people found it very hard to hit me.


“But, if you look at my last few fights, people have found it easy to hit me and I have had to get up off the floor a good few times.

“There were 10 knockdowns between me and Wilder in that trilogy, that’s a lot.

“I am being hit more than ever but I am also doing more damage with my punches.”

Chisora – who has lost three of his last four fights – has been written off by the majority of British boxing fans and been made the 11-1 underdog by most bookies.

But he points to Leicester’s 5,000-1 Premier League title win as proof longshot dreams do still come true and you only need a puncher’s chance.

“In this country we have this problem where we write people off,” Chisora said.

“A few years ago we said Leicester didn’t have a chance and then they won it and people were shocked.

“People kept saying how if you would have bet on Leicester on this day or that day that you would have won £100,000.

“It’s the same with this fight. You never know who has got a chance.”
