Tyson Fury and Dereck Chisora ready for another explosive encounter

Tyson Fury and Dereck Chisora ready for another explosive encounter The potential for mayhem at the ExCeL Arena in London on Saturday night is considerable, which probably explains why it will be filled to capacity with 20,000 boxing fans looking for a little more entertainment than was on view in Liverpool last Saturday.

While Tyson Fury and Dereck Chisora have (more or less) behaved themselves in the long lead-up to their heavyweight rematch, neither walks on the side of the angels, each owning a hard-won reputation for indiscretion. And, although they should be given the benefit of the doubt until they actually let themselves down, this is a fight more likely to explode than drift to a gentlemanly finish and hugs at the end. Even if a disqualification would be no surprise, Chisora should be able to hold it together long enough to wear Fury down over the full distance.

However, rematches are too often an anticlimax – as we saw last Saturday, when Nathan Cleverly and Tony Bellew disappointed themselves and everybody else, a letdown exacerbated by the fact Sky and Matchroom gambled on it being worthy of pay-per-view.

Frank Warren’s subscription channel, BoxNation, meanwhile, has put together a lengthy bill brimming with genuine uncertainty, which is as it should be.

There is much at stake in the supposed main event, although the vacant British title will, sadly, be less of a negotiating chip than it once was when the winner goes looking for a world title shot. Fury hopes at last to catch up with his sometime sparring partner Wladimir Klitschko, and the enigmatic Chisora is content to go where victory leads him, although he would relish a chance to complete a double challenge against the Ukrainian brothers.

Both fighters have looked alarmingly cool and in great shape, although Fury’s clowning instincts – wrapped up in what he described to Donald McRae in 2011 as “commit-suicide-sad” tendencies – are not buried much deeper than those of Chisora, who has bitten an opponent and had to apologise for threatening to shoot David Haye.

Chisora, seriously underdone when losing to Fury on points three years ago, is a changed man after briefly losing his licence for his post-fight dust-up with Haye in Munich in 2012. It should be remembered, also, that earlier that night he distinguished himself with a robust challenge for Vitali Klitschko’s title, one of the few to do so in recent years.

The real lead attraction on Saturday, however, is the middleweight fight between the unbeaten British, European and Commonwealth champion Billy Joe Saunders and his bauble-free opponent, Chris Eubank Jr.

When the fight was made – after tortuous negotiations between Warren and Eubank’s eccentric father – I had a suspicion the challenger could pull off an upset. He has decent power at a lower level, Chris Sr’s inbuilt arrogance and bags of charisma. But Saunders has seen all these danger signs, too, and spent six weeks preparing in Marbella – not in the bars there, either....
