    Dereck Chisora will face Tyson Fury in a world title eliminator on 26 July, says promoter Frank Warren, who also revaled on Twitter that the heavyweight rivals will face each other in Manchester.

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

    Dereck Chisora, on Tyson Fury

    Fury won on points the last time they met in 2011, but there has been plenty of bad blood since then, with Chisora described as "useless", "one-paced" and a "bum" by his fellow Briton.

    The winner is set to challenge IBF, WBA and WBO champion Wladimir Klitschko.

    Chisora has vowed to avenge his 2011 defeat to Fury at Wembley Stadium when they collide for a second time in an eagerly-awaited domestic heavyweight showdown. 

    The Zimbabwe-born fighter, 30, told reporters: "Tyson has got one over me and he thinks he's the greatest fighter in Great Britain, but he's not because he has only been fighting cab drivers."

    Fury, 25, responded: "Chisora could be one of those cab drivers because I've already beaten him once."

    "Chisora is nothing more than a glorified journeyman. I'm going to show you how much of a bum he is on 26 July."
