Dereck Chisora insists Tyson Fury has been fighting "cab drivers" after it was announced the pair will be contesting a world title eliminator on July 26.

Fury defeated Chisora on points in 2011 and their rematch - confirmed by promoter Frank Warren on Monday - will see the victor earn a bout against WBO, IBF and WBA champion Wladimir Klitschko.

Speaking to talkSPORT, Chisora said he is "excited" to be taking Fury once again, and has promised to get revenge over his fellow Briton.

"Tyson has got one over me and he thinks he's the greatest fighter in Great Britain, but he's not. He hasn't fought any proper fighters, he's only been fighting cab drivers," Chisora said.

Fury responded to Chisora's remarks by labelling him a "glorified journeyman".

"Chisora could be one of those cab drivers because I've already beaten him once," he said.

"We're the best heavyweights in Britain and it will prove who should take on Klitschko. Chisora is nothing more than a glorified journeyman. I'm going to show you how much of a bum he is on July 26."
