DERECK Chisora has taunted Tyson Fury by telling him he has “only been fighting cab drivers” as they square up for a world heavyweight title eliminator later this summer.

Promoter Frank Warren has announced the blockbuster battle will be held in Manchester on Saturday, July 26 and it will be for the British heavyweight title as well as for the right to fight Wladimir Klitschko for his WBO crown.

It is a rematch of the grudge battle between the two fierce rivals which Fury won with a huge unanimous points decision at Wembley in July 2011.

Chisora suffered his first defeat in 15 outings that night and was widely regarded to have been out of condition entering the ring but he has since hit top form, winning his last five fights since being stopped by David Haye. Fury remains unbeaten with 16 stoppages in 22 victories.

There is bad blood between the two fighters and Chisora told TalkSPORT: “I’m excited. I’m looking forward to this fight.

“Tyson has got one over me and he thinks he’s the greatest fighter in Great Britain but he’s not. He hasn’t fought any proper fighters, he’s only been fighting cab drivers.”

Fury responded to the taunt by branding his rival a ‘journeyman’ and said: “Chisora could be one of those cab drivers because I’ve already beaten him once.

“We’re the best heavyweights in Britain and it will prove who should take on Klitschko. Chisora is nothing more than a glorified journeyman. I’m going to show you how much of a bum he is on July 26.”

American Deontay Wilder, who stopped Malik Scott in the first round of their clash in Puerto Rico on Saturday, has expressed an interest in fighting both Fury and Chisora in England later this year.

Wilder’s victory was his 31st of his stellar professional career and all have been by knock-out inside four five rounds.
