Dereck Chisora believes he can chop Morecambe giant Tyson Fury down to size with body shots when they meet in their world title eliminator.

Heavyweight rivals Chisora and Fury clash on July 26 at Manchester’s Phones 4 U Arena with the winner getting the number one spot to challenge reigning WBO king Wladimir Klitschko.

The Finchley puncher was in a fiery mood with the fight just over a month away at a media work-out at his new Mill Hill gym on Thursday.

European Heavyweight Champion Chisora said: “He’s a big guy and I’ll be looking to smash his body up with my punches.

“He’ll definitely fall from a body punch, he won’t be able to stand the heat that I’ll be bringing, I’ll be chopping him down like a tree,

“There’ll be no place for him to hide in that ring and I’ll be hunting him down until he’s got nowhere to go and I’ll nail him, by the time I’ve finished with him he’ll be the size as me.

“I don’t want to hear any excuses from him after the fight, he’d better be ready because he’s getting knocked out.”
