Fate is a strange thing!

By some strange quirk of fate the very man that Tyson Fury will step into the ring with this Saturday evening, at the Manchester Arena, is the very person who Dereck Chisora picked his hand injury up against in sparring.

For Alexander Ustinov this fight represents a golden opportunity to make his mark on the heavyweight scene and with a record of 29 wins and 1 defeat, with 21 wins by knockout, some are saying it is a harder fight for Fury than Chisora would have been.

Talking about his golden chance, Ustinov had this to say to the media,

?It?s a shame what happened to Dereck.?

?But he shouldn?t worry too much as I will get a win over Fury.?

?The only reason I have said yes to fighting Fury is that I know I can beat him.?

?He should look at how many opponents I have knocked out.?

With that one defeat coming against the respected Bulgarian fighter, Kubrat Pulev, the scene has been set for one hell of a contest.

May the best man win!
