And who wouldn’t be mad after panto rival David Haye‘s brave busted up pinky toe yanked the rug out of Fury’s £5 million purse not just once but twice last year? Twitter took a prolonged beating from Fury who graphically vented his rage, but now he’s featured with Dereck Chisora in a Frank Warren co-promotion against journeyman Joey Abell at The Copper Box Arena in London come Saturday, February 15.
The deal is a 3 fight affair designed to promote the 3rd and final fight against Chisora in a supposed WBO eliminator. That would be a rematch of Fury’s previous tattoo job he did on Chisora a few years back, but to hear him modestly describe the promotion, mainly it’s about being back to fighting, earning some money, and aiming towards a title fight, probably against Wlad Klitschko.
Here he is early in his last fight last year against USS Steve Cunningham. No boxing match that streetside donnybrook, he got stretched by a shot going off like a thunderclap and was quite fortunate to survive such brute force to quickly turn the fight his way. Hard to know where his mercurial undefeated career will end up, but for sure we can hear him before we see his 6-9 presence, and for sure he loves the sound and the fury of the stage and fights as hard as anyone in boxing, so tune in to see how he sorts it all out.
