Dereck Chisora says he is “reborn” ahead of his rematch with Tyson Fury on July 26 at the Phones 4 U Arena in Manchester.

Chisora meets the Morecambe giant in a crucial WBO World Heavyweight Title Eliminator with his European title and the vacant British title on the line.

Although the Finchley puncher lost to Fury back in July 2011, losing his British and Commonwealth belts and undefeated record, he says to expect a completely different fighter this time around.

He said: “That was three years ago and I’ve reborn as a fighter since then.

“Trust me, when you see what I do to Fury this time, you’ll have to look at the first fight again to see if it’s the same Dereck Chisora,

“They say revenge is best served cold, it’s been three years but it will be a cold and calculated performance from me on the night.”

Elsewhere, Fury’s good friend, Morecambe super featherweight prospect Isaac Lowe, is set to return to the ring on May 17 at Leeds Town Hall.

The unbeaten Westgate Warrior will feature on the undercard of Hennessy Sports’ MaxiNutrition Knockout semi-finals live on Channel 5.
