World champion heavyweight boxer Tyson Fury has refused to apologise for the offensive language he used during a television appearance on the eve of his bout against challenger Derek Chisora.
Saturday night’s WBC bout at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London will be the third time the two pugilists meet, with the Gypsy King having won the first two fights.
Chisora lost the first fight on points before being stopped in their 2014 sequel.
But Fury dismissed suggestions of an easy fight, saying: “Whoever fights Chisora is in for a f***ing good fight”.
In a Twitter post by Frank Warren’s Queensberry Promotions, the host apologises for the foul language, but Fury bellows: “If you’re offended by my language, get the f**k out that door”.
Win or lose Fury’s challenger, Chisora, is expected to make a pretty penny.
Although Chisora hails from Mbare in Harare, Zimbabwe, he is a Briton.
While he expressed his sincere gratitude to Fury for calling him on the phone to offer the fight, which Chisora said would “put food on the table for my kids” the man from Mbare, dubbed “War”, said come Saturday they will be no holding back.
According to SportsZion, Fury will be getting a guaranteed purse of $25 million on the night, and with an 80% PPV share, his total purse should stack up to a whopping $36.5 million.
On the undercard, South Africa’s Kevin “2 Guns” Lerena challenges British heavyweight champion, Daniel Dubois, for the WBA (Regular) heavyweight championship belt.
As many as 60 000 boxing fans are expected to watch the “Two World Heavyweight Title Fights One Night” billing.
