Dereck Chisora has laid out his main hope for his December world title fight with Tyson Fury – imploring the judges and referee to give him a fair crack of the whip.
Chisora has been aggrieved by the scoring of several fights earlier in his career, and told BT Sport that he hopes this can be avoided when he locks horns with Fury at Tottenham Hotspurs’ stadium.
“I just hope on December 3rd there will be fair judging and a fair referee. There’s been so much going on in this camp for me and I just don’t want people to be biased. Just come in there with an open mind and be fair.”
“I know for a fact I’m not coming to lay down, he’s not coming to lay down. So I just want it to be fair, basically.”
‘Del Boy’ has previously stated he felt the judging of his fight with Oleksandr Usyk and his first meetings with Joseph Parker and Dillian Whyte did not do him justice, all of which he lost by relatively close decisions.
Many fans are not anticipating the judges to be required at all, with Fury a huge favourite in this eyes of most observers. The now WBC world heavyweight champion beat Chisora in comprehensive fashion when the two faced off in their earlier careers, and large swathes of the boxing public are expecting the trilogy bout to reach an even more conclusive ending.
Fury came under heavy criticism this week, after he personally insulted YouTuber True Geordie who questioned him on whether or not Chisora was worthy of a world title shot at this stage of his career.
