Tyson Fury stated while talking to talkSPORT Fight Night, “Me and Derek Chisora used to be buddies. As soon as I have a fight, he goes, ‘I’ll pick the other guy.’ So Chisora can kiss my a*** and if I see him I’m gonna punch him in the face… I’ve busted you two times and I’ll do it again you little sucker.”

Apparently, The Gypsy King and Chisora are not friends anymore. Fury said that if he sees him, he will punch his face. Also, the retired champion even challenged his now-turned foe by saying that he had busted him two times before, and he will do it again. 

When Derek Chisora bet his house against Tyson Fury 

The ‘Del Boy’ has been Fury’s friend for almost 10 years or more. However, now the friendship isn’t intact as it was before. Both of them have even faced each other inside the ring. Fury won both of them. 

Chisora told Talksport, “I’m willing to put my house on it. I’m willing to put my house on Dillian Whyte knocking Tyson Fury out. Look at your faces in the studio! Tyson is my mate and I know he’s listening – Tyson, you’re going to get knocked out.”

While talking to ESNEWS, Ruiz Jr said, “I’m on a mission. I want to get that green belt. That’s the belt that I’m missing. So I don’t know what’s going to happen or whether Tyson Fury is going to vacate the belt. I don’t know who is going to be the person to try to win that belt, but that’s my mission now. After I get that, I can retire.”    

The Mexican star has set a big goal in his mind before he retires. Only time will tell if it becomes a reality. Until then, share your thoughts about Fury’s remark on Chisora in the comments below.
