Dereck Chisora has vowed to send Tyson Fury "to the naughty corner" when they meet for their July 26 world title eliminator.

The winner in Manchester at the Phones 4u Arena will challenge IBF, WBA and WBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko.

The build-up to the bout has already seen Fury flip over a table before storming out of an expletive-filled March press conference promoting the fight, promising to knock Chisora "spark out"

"We are just going to chill out. I will just ignore him and then put him in the naughty corner," said Chisora.

Fury also labelled Chisora "useless", "one-paced" and "a bum" in February after both men won on the same bill at the Copper Box in London.

The pair have met once before in July 2011, with Fury beating Chisora on points to become British and Commonwealth champion at Wembley Arena.

"He [Fury] doesn't worry me," Chisora added.

"We know he swings a lot when he is in a panic. He has progressed and his jab is amazing, that is one of the keys for us but we have a better jab than him."

Chisora also revealed he is suffering from a hamstring injury but insists it will not stop him being ready for Fury in Manchester.

"I'm not going to lie, I have got a problem with my hamstring which is why I haven't been in the gym, [but] everything is going well for me."
