DERECK CHISORA hopes Tyson Fury beats Deontay Wilder when the two fight for the WBC heavyweight title at the Staples Center in Los Angeles today (December 1).

But he is concerned that the Briton has taken this fight too soon.

Chisora has fought Fury twice, losing to him on both occasions so he know just how capable Tyson is between the ropes.

Chisora explains, “I’m always going to be rooting for the Union Jack but I believe he’s taking this fight too early because he’s got his own demons to fight first. He’s saying to people that he’s not fighting those demons any more. I find that hard to believe.”

Chisora continued, “It’ll be a tricky one. If he boxes how he boxed when he boxed [Wladimir] Klitschko, he might survive the fight and go 12 rounds. But when he gets hit by that guy who hits like mule, it’s goodnight.”
