Fury sparring old foe McDermott for Chisora fight
With just three weeks to go until the purse bid for the British heavyweight title fight between Tyson Fury and Dereck Chisora, the Manchester based fighter has headed to London to spar old foe and good friend John McDermott.
The 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 have to be submitted to the British Boxing Board’s head office by 12.00noon on April 13, with the contest set to take place by the end of July.
