Despite admitting he will be backing Tyson Fury next month, Dereck Chisora believes the self-proclaimed ‘Gypsy King’ has taken the fight with Deontay Wilder too soon, the Daily Mail report.
Chisora, who has recently teamed up with former rival David Haye, has just announced a rematch with Dillian Whyte, with the pair set to face off in London next month.
Whyte has promised to retire Chisora before the end of the year, with ‘the Body Snatcher’ then looking to face Anthony Joshua in April.
Fury on the other hand is challenging the American for his WBC title, after only fighting twice since his return to the ring.
Both Wilder and Fury have had a lot of bad blood over recent months, with the winner of the highly anticipated clash also in line for a 2019 meeting with Joshua at Wembley Stadium.
However, talking ahead of his grudge bout with Whyte, Chisora, who was defeated by Fury back in 2014, showed concern for his fellow Brit, revealing he will have to box like he did against Wladimir Klitschko to have a chance in Los Angeles.
I’m always going to be rooting for the Union Jack but I believe this fight has come too soon and Fury has taken the fight too early.
He has got his own demons that he has to fight first. He is saying to the people that he’s not fighting those demons anymore and I find that hard to believe.
It will be a tricky one.
If Tyson boxes how he did against Klitschko he might survive the whole 12 rounds. But when he gets hit by that guy, who hits like a mule, it’s goodnight.
