Hall of Fame promoter Frank Warren and heavyweight contender Dereck Chisora traded barbs in recent days. According to Seconds Out, Chisora said at a press conferrence “Frank Warren, you need to retire and go hang out with your grandkids." Warren, who promoted some of Chisora’s big fights responded as follows:
"I see old Dellboy Chisora piped up last week with a few premature rumors of my demise, but I think I can confidently predict that his retirement from boxing will come long before mine. Dereck is a bit of an old relic of the division on about his tenth rebuilding job by now while, funnily enough, the present and future of the heavyweight operate under my guidance and promotion.
"Tyson Fury... twice comprehensively schooled old Dell and future world champions, Daniel Dubois and Joe Joyce – who he flat out refuses to consider fighting – are the ones who will be dominating the division for a long time with me right behind them making the big fights that matter.
"So this old dinosaur has evolved is feeling quite sprightly and might even switch on the box in a couple of weeks’ time to watch the real Jurassic Park when Dereck steps in with David Price in what is a proper retirement fight."
