Heavyweights Tyson Fury and Dereck Chisora have proven to be two of the more controversial British boxers in recent years and they are set to face off later this month.
The unbeaten Fury, aged 25, holds a record of 22 wins with 16 knock outs and has created a reputation of being entertaining both in and out of the ring.

Fury has an aggressive style which causes him to get hit with shots that his huge size and reach should mean he avoids. He looks to knock his opponent out and often his fights end up being good scraps to watch.

Chisora: Controversial character

Chisora, aged 30, has also proved a hugely controversial figure over the years with incidents such as kissing an opponent, slapping Vitali Klitschko, spitting water in the face of Wladimir Klitschko and the famous brawl with David Haye.

Chisora was a man who was always liable to lose his temper and react but in the last couple of years he seems to have matured and realised the importance of keeping his composure.
Chisora now makes sure that he is in a good physical condition when he enters the ring which is something that neither man has always been able to say.

In their first fight back in 2011 both men looked far from being in good shape with Chisora weighing in at 18st 9lb despite only being 187cm tall.

Both men have come on a long way since fighting each other and are on the brink of a world title shot with the winner claiming the position of WBO mandatory challenger.

Chisora has been in with a better level of opponent than Fury having faced the likes of Vitali Klitschko and David Haye but he came up short in both fights. He fought well during both contests and enhanced his reputation a long way though.

Since his loss to Haye he has gone on to win his last five fights and seems like a more rounded boxer who can cause issues to Fury in what should be an entertaining domestic dust-up.

Fury is no angel

Fury has endured a frustrating time recently following two fights with Haye being cancelled due to a cut and shoulder injury on Haye's side.

Fury only fought once last year and once so far this year which is not ideal for a young man looking to make big strides in the sport.

The rivalry between the two seems to be slowly building up but the antics have not been as present as they may have been a year or two ago with both men realising what is at stake for them.

The loser of the fight will be left flagging behind in the division whereas the winner will go on and probably fight for a title next year.

Picking a winner is tough due to the improvement of both men since their first fight. Fury has shown signs of vulnerability including being floored by former cruiserweight champion Steve Cunningham.

Cunningham is not known as a big puncher but he sat Fury down and that will give Chisora encouragement. Chisora isn't the biggest puncher out there but he is a high pressure fighter.
Chisora is the much shorter man and really Fury should look to keep the fight at distance and pepper his opponent with the jab. By doing this not only will Fury limit the danger to himself but he will force Chisora to jump in and take chances.

The chances of Fury sticking to such a game plan aren't high though as he has shown his fighters instinct continually in his career.

Fury should win this fight but it should be a tough 12 round contest for my money.
