Peter Fury reveals Tyson's battle

Tyson Fury was almost forced to pull out of his heavyweight clash with Dereck Chisora after a virus prevented the 26-year-old from training for three and a half weeks, according to uncle and trainer Peter Fury.

The Manchester fighter coasted to a 10th-round stoppage win over Chisora at London's ExCel Arena to claim the European and vacant British belt while also setting up a mandatory challenge to Wladimir Klitschko.

Fury dominated the encounter from start to finish to beat Chisora for the second time in three years but it was revealed after the victory that he had been close to withdrawing due to a chest infection last week.

"Nobody knows Tyson hadn't trained for the past three and a half weeks coming into this fight," Peter Fury said.

"Tyson had a virus that put him bed-ridden. He's had flu injections, been up and down to the doctors, I took him to my place and put him in bed for three or four days.

"Last week he started to feel better and two days before this fight he said, 'listen I feel absolutely okay'

"There was talk at one time of pulling this fight but we have to be on death's door to pull a fight."

The trainer added: "We rested him him up, took him for a few walks, gave him plenty of saunas and he came out of it.
