Fury sparring old foe McDermott ahead of Chisora fight.

With just three weeks to go until we find out who will promote the British Heavyweight title fight between Tyson Fury and Dereck Chisora, the Manchester based heavyweight has headed to London to spar old foe and good friend John McDermott.

These two big rivals have already met twice in the last two years for the English title but now they are helping each other in preparation for their next fights.

Tyson said "I’ve become good mates with John, he is not only a great fighter but he is also a great man."

"I’ve travelled down to London this week and it has been worth it, the sparring has been great, we are both helping each other out for our upcoming fights, mine against Chisora and his against David Price, which will be a British title eliminator."

"I’m training hard and in great shape and feel really focused and looking forward to getting it on with Del Boy." Added Fury

Purse bids for Fury vs. Chisora are to be submitted to the British Boxing Board’s Head Office by 12.00noon on Wednesday, 13 April 2011, the contest is to take place by the end of July 2011.
