Fury’s wins over Chisora in 2011 and 2014 put him on the path to heavyweight glory – with the Wythenshawe warrior going on to win all the titles on offer.

But Chisora hasn’t been impressed by what he’s seen of his old rival in his back-to-back dust-ups with Deontay Wilder or his Wembley war with Dillian Whyte.

War told BT Sport: “I think he was a better fighter when I last boxed him.

“Last time I fought him he was better, he was good, he was on point.”

Chisora’s third tussle with Fury will provide him with a second crack at a world title, the first of which came against Wladimir Klitschko ten years ago.

But there won’t be any wild celebrates for the battle-weathered bruiser if he shocks the world.

When asked how he plans to celebrate if he dethrones Fury, he said: “Go home. Do the same thing I do every day.

“Go home and just chill. Winning or losing there’s only one place you’re going to go afterwards, and that’s home.


“You chill, and then, from then, you know exactly what you’re going to do.”

Despite handily winning their two previous meetings, Fury is refusing to overlook fan favourite Chisora.

He said: “He [Chisora] done very well against [Oleksandr] Usyk.

“And may I say, who the hell is Usyk? People didn’t know his name until he beat the bodybuilder the other day.

“He was a little, small heavyweight who wasn’t going to do anything against AJ when Chisora fought him.

“But then he stepped up and beat the big bodybuilder [Anthony Joshua] and now all of a sudden, he’s the killer. I don’t think so.

“Listen, I rate Derek Chisora as highly as I rate Usyk, and I will train as hard for Derek as I will for any man in the world.

“If I didn’t, I would have to be an absolute idiot – I will not underestimate Derek Chisora.

“God forbid I got beat, it won’t be for the fact that I had an injury or I didn’t train hard enough, it would be the fact that I lost to a better man on the night.

“We’re going to have a fight and that’s it. It’s going to be a good fight too, because he doesn’t shy away and I’m running nowhere, so someone is getting chinned.”
