Tyson Fury says he could knock out Dereck Chisora and sparring partner Mariusz Wach on the same night

Tyson Fury says he could knock out Dereck Chisora and his sparring partner Mariusz Wach on the same night.
The Mancunian heavyweight will go toe-to-toe with Finchley’s Chisora on Saturday, July 26 at the Phones 4 U Arena with the vacant British heavyweight title, EBU heavyweight title and WBO international heavyweight title all up for grabs.
Wach, a heavyweight best known for going 12 rounds with Wladimir Klitschko in 2012, recently said Chisora would knock Fury out early on if he caught 25-year-old with a ‘big punch’ and Fury has reacted angrily to the 6ft 7in Pole’s comments.
Fury said: “Let’s get real, Chisora couldn’t get near me in the first fight so what makes anyone think he’s going to knock me out this time around. So he’s had a few wins since we met, big deal, knocking out eastern European cab drivers does not suddenly make him super-human or a knock-out king.
“I do hope that Chisora is listening to this garbage from Wach because he’ll start believing it and when we meet I’ll destroy him.
“In my opinion they are made for each other, two bums. I’ll gladly line them up one after the other in Manchester. Chisora first, he’ll get knocked spark out and then I’d do Wach straight after him.”
Fury and Chisora fought for the British Heavyweight title in July 2011, with Fury winning in a clear unanimous decision to land the title.
