TYSON FURY claimed Oleksandr Usyk is “nowhere near as tough” as Derek Chisora – as their war of words begin.
Usyk was ringside this month in Tottenham when Fury stopped Chisora in ten one-sided rounds.
And the win has subsequently kept the pair of unbeaten champions on track for a historic title unification next year.
Usyk, 35, in 2020 beat Chisora, 38, but was taken to the wire.
And Fury, 34, insisted his old friend – who he has now beaten THREE times – is a tougher challenge Usyk.
He told iFL TV: “I don’t think it is a tough fight. I don’t think it’s nowhere near as tough as old Del Boy.
“He will not stand up to those punches that Derek did against me.
“When I watch the fight between him and Derek, whether people want to admit it or not, it was a 50/50 fight.
“It might have been 55/45, but it wasn’t a landslide. It wasn’t like he didn’t win a round, like he didn’t against me.”
The two are still in talks for what would be the first four-belt undisputed decider in heavyweight history, set for the Middle East.

But Fury is already plotting a sequel at Wembley, where in April he sold 94,000 tickets for his knockout over Dillian Whyte, 34.
He said: “You can never underestimate anybody but from where I am in my life at the moment, I would want to take him out quite quickly.
“I’d like to get him in there in February, make an example out of him, then give him a rematch at Wembley.”
