Fury not interested in fighting 'losers' Haye & Chisora

Tyson Fury has labelled David Haye and Dereck Chisora "losers", insisting he has no interest in fighting the winner of Saturday's all-British battle.

Fury's unbeaten record now stands at 19 professional fights after he saw off Vinny Maddalone over the weekend. The victory was expected, but Fury looked a more physically impressive prospect than he has at any other stage of his career.

The 23-year-old roared that he wanted to fight the Klitschkos following his triumph, although promoter Mick Hennessey said his charge was likely three fights away from meeting the Ukrainians.

A different prospect might have been a clash with the winner of this weekend's Haye v Chisora encounter. Fury has beaten Chisora once before in an entertaining contest, while he has never met Haye, but the 6ft 9in heavyweight wants no part of either man.

"They have had their chance. Haye blew it and then complained about his toe against Wladimir Klitschko while Chisora was a competitive loser against Vitali," Fury said.

"They are losers and it's my time to shine now. It's my era and I will reign once I get my shot. I'm the leading heavyweight in Britain by a mile.

"I've fought the best opponents compared to the other British heavyweights. Their fight on Saturday might get a lot of interest but it could be a stinker because if Haye doesn't come to fight, it will be an awful one.

"I'm not interested in fighting them. I've fought Chisora and beat him a year ago, anyway. If Haye wins he will try to get a Klitschko fight, but it will be me who fights one of them next.

"Vitali is probably going to retire after September and his brother says he won't fight Haye again."
