Tyson Fury: I hope to weigh as little as 16 stone for Dereck Chisora

Matt Christie listens to Tyson Fury and Dereck Chisora but Chris Eubank Jnr is absent again

THE absence of Chris Eubank Jnr and Tyson Fury’s enormous beard were the highlights of the final press conference to promote Frank Warren’s sold-out November 29 ‘Bad Blood’ show.

“You know the old story, we’ve been here 10,000 times,” Warren sighed about yet another no-show from Billy Joe Saunders’ opponent. “Eubank Jnr is not here so I told Billy Joe not to bother. They’ll do their head-to-head tomorrow [at the weight-in], hopefully. One day he’ll get professional about this.”

The promoter shrugged his shoulders and shook his head, like an unruly teenager’s tortured parent, when asked when the Eubanks decided they would not attend.
