Dan Rafael pulled no punches in assessment of a potential third meeting between Tyson Fury and Dereck Chisora this December – describing a trilogy fight between the two as “a waste of time.”
Speaking to Boxing Social, the esteemed journalist elaborated that the one sided nature of the pair’s earlier fights made another contest difficult for even Fury’s biggest fans to defend.
“If he wants to take an easier fight, I’m fine with that. But it’s the drama of ‘oh, I’m going to fight Joshua’ and then you tell me that you’re fighting Manuel Charr and now you’re fighting Dereck Chisora who you already beat twice, both times in dominant fashion.”
“Is there anybody who wants to see that? Who wants to see Fury-Chisora 3? Not me – I don’t know anybody who wants to see that fight again.”
“For what purpose? You could be the most ardent Tyson Fury supporter in the world, but you have to be disappointed with that fight.”
“To me, it’s just a waste of time.”
There has been no official confirmation yet, but Chisora is rumoured to be a strong front runner for Fury’s December 3rd date, which now looks likely to be staged at Tottenham Hotspurs’ stadium in London.
Although build up between Fury and Chisora would perhaps be entertaining, it is hard to envisage a particularly competitive battle in the ring and the fight would ultimately be a disappointment for British fight fans who, just a few weeks ago, were daring to dream that Anthony Joshua would be the man standing opposite Fury in a UK ring in December.
