Heavyweight rivals Tyson Fury and Dereck Chisora will face off at The Printworks in Manchester on Saturday.

British boxing great Ricky Hatton will be amongst those in attendance as the pair build up to their world title eliminator at the Phones 4 U Arena on Saturday, July 26.

The Hitman will be on the stage at 1pm with BoxNation presenter Steve Bunce before the face off at 2pm.

Hatton said: “Like the rest of Britain I can’t wait for Fury and Chisora to get it on on July 26.

“Nothing gets the public going like a good all-British heavyweight fight and these two are certainly going to give the fans a real fight.

“Nobody knows the Phones 4 U Arena like I do and I had countless great fight nights there and I think that these two are going to produce something special on the night.

“So much is on the line for both of them, Chisora’s European title, the vacant British title and a potential world title fight against Wladimir Klitschko for the winner.

“Both men have bags of pride and passion and neither will want to come out second best which is why it’s going to be a cracker.”

The event is open to the public and is free to attend.

Chisora and Morecambe’s Fury will meet with the fans and sign autographs and pose for pictures after the event.
