Tyson Fury vs Derek Chisora ​​shows ‘Gypsy King’ loses his biggest asset

One of Tyson Fury’s most beneficial and intriguing traits in the boxing ring has always been his unpredictability. The “Gypsy King’s” ability to clumsily outwit opponents has perhaps only ever been surpassed by a similar ability to verbally outwit them and stay several sizable steps ahead of the crowd.

The Brit has to hope his aura lasts in the ring, however, as his off-ring equivalent is starting to slip.

At Thursday’s press conference at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, hours after Fury was confirmed to be taking on old foe Derek Chisora ​​at that very venue on December 3, the WBC heavyweight champion faced his challenger.

And while the eccentricity was as apparent as ever, the excitement was lacking, as Fury might as well have read from a script – and continued to play his part in a much bigger work.

“When it comes to selling Derek Chisora ​​to the fans, I don’t have to sell anything to anyone,” the undefeated 34-year-old said before attempting to sell Derek Chisora ​​to the fans.

“If he lands a punch on me, a big punch, I’ll pass out,” Fury said. “If I land a punch on him, a big punch, he’ll knock out. Somebody get chin. I value Derek Chisora ​​as much as Oleksandr Usyk and I will train for Derek as hard as anyone else in the world; I’d have to be an idiot not to do that.”

But in 22 rounds – 12 of them in 2011 and 10 in 2014 – Chisora ​​failed to deliver such a punch to Fury, instead losing a decision in the Brits’ first clash and a TKO loss in the second fight.

Chisora ​​even joked that everyone involved in the upcoming trilogy fight would need their promoter Eddie Hearn to help them sell 70,000 tickets.

And as that competition draws closer, fans can only hope that the action in the ring is less predictable than the fight announcement itself – because Wednesday’s briefing on an upcoming Fury press conference was accompanied by a reassurance that Chisora ​​would be the opponent would be. That was despite Fury’s recent negotiations with fellow countryman Anthony Joshua.

And indeed, since Fury’s alleged retirement in April, which was teased ahead of the 34-year-old’s knockout of Dillian Whyte at Wembley, every “twist” of the plot has been entirely predictable. The saga, set to culminate on December 3, devoted far too much of its runtime to this “retirement,” and the same goes for its second act: building a fight with Joshua that would never happen.

Fury’s offer to Joshua came shortly after The Independent reported that the WBC champion was in talks with Chisora, and many predicted the “AJ” call was just a ruse. It was widely believed that Fury would have an uninspiring fight next – whether against Chisora ​​or not – and that the undefeated Briton would ultimately pull the plug on talks with Joshua and blame the Olympian if there was one less convincing fight would have been presented.

That is exactly what happened and played out as predictably as the press conference between Fury and Chisora ​​itself.

Thursday’s event was a microcosm of the storyline Fury has followed at every turn this year and fewer and fewer fans will do just that if they continue to feel like they can see those moves coming.
