Tyson Fury interrupted an open workout by his world heavyweight title opponent Derek Chisora to vow to stand toe-to-toe with his rival in their fight this Saturday.

Fury defends his WBC Title against his old rival Chisora, who he has already beaten twice, at Tottenham Hotspur Football Stadium in London.

The Morecambe-based champion and his adversary took part in an open media workout ahead of the fight, held at the BT Sport Studios on Tuesday.

When Fury arrived at the venue, he was interviewed for the Queensberry Promotions YouTube channel.

Tyson, who is undefeated in his 34-fight professional career, said he'd put in "about three weeks' training" for the fight.

This was a typically tongue-in-cheek comment from 'The Gypsy King', who later said he'd put in "a good hard training camp, nine weeks".

Chisora, who had been stretching in the ring, then confronted the champion at ringside for some good-natured banter.

They playfully grappled for a moment, before promising to knock each other out on Saturday night.

"Let's give the fans what they want, let's stand in the middle of the ring and batter the f__ out of each other," roared Fury.

The Londoner replied: "One hundred per cent. You want that? I will do this one for you, yeah? When we get to the first round, me and you we go."

Fury, 34, said: "What I'll do is I'll come to the middle of the ring, and I'll wipe the floor with (my) glove, and I'll (say) 'step to the line' and we'll step to the line and we'll have it."

The two men then shook hands, surrounded by media representatives in the BT Sport Studios.

"We're getting it on, like Donkey Kong!" screamed Fury.

Tyson then entered the ring with his trainer Sugarhill Steward and did a rigorous 30-minute public workout.

The champion looked sharp as he shadow-boxed and punched the pads held out by his trainer.

"We did eight proper rounds like we do them in the gym," said Fury on the ring microphone afterwards.

"Here's a challenge to (promoters) Frank Warren and Bob Arum, how about we do 15-20 fights next year! Come on!"

Fury beat Chisora via unanimous points decision in 2011 followed by a one-sided 10th round retirement victory in 2014.

The 38-year-old 'War' Chisora has a professional record of 33 wins in 45 fights.
