Mark Tibbs has made his thoughts clear on the rumoured December meeting between Tyson Fury and Dereck Chisora – and, like many others, Tibbs is less than impressed with the fight.
Speaking to SecondsOut, Tibbs, however, did concede that the fight would likely sell well due to the sheer pulling power of Tyson Fury.
“It [Fury vs Chisora] is not a fight I’d want to see myself, to tell you the truth.”
“But Fury’s a draw, isn’t he? He’s a pull, he’s a showman.”
“I think he’s reached out to AJ, who we never thought would refuse that fight, that would have been a great fight, a seller. He’s reached out to a few people.”
Fury and Chisora locked horns twice in the early stages of their careers, with ‘The Gypsy King’ emerging a comfortable winner on both occasions and actually stopping Chisora in their second fight in 2015.
With Fury now considered the best heavyweight on the planet and ‘Del Boy’s best years seen to be well behind him, there are few in the sport with the view that a third meeting will be particularly competitive.
An official announcement on Fury’s next opponent is expected tomorrow, with Tottenham Hotspurs’ stadium the rumoured location for a December 3rd date.
Fans were left disappointed in recent weeks after talks for a mammoth fight between Fury and Anthony Joshua collapsed yet again, with both camps now taking turns in blaming the other for the failure to reach an agreement.
With the news that Deontay Wider vs Andy Ruiz Jr will be ordered as a final WBC title eliminator, it does raise the prospect of seeing Fury take on ‘The Bronze Bomber’ for a fourth time in late 2023.
